The Domenico Morone room at Villa Giona in Verona, Tuscany in Italy
Ten minutes from romantic Verona and Lake Garda, the Villa Giona offers a sophisticated Tuscan food escape. This sixteenth-century villa has just six rooms, surrounded by an enchanting twelve-acre park with vineyard gardens. The property also hosts hands-on, five-hour cooking classes taught by Giuliano Hazan, the son of Marcella Hazan, doyenne of the Italian culinary scene. Subjects include homemade pasta and risotto, and every class includes a wine presentation from Marilisa Allegrini, whose winery bottles an exclusive Villa Giona label. All cooking holidays incorporate excursions, including visits to a Veronese olive press, a historical rice mill with original crushing stones to process the rice for risotto and a factory where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made.
