The details and colors in Renaissance painting always amaze me. Lots of biking, lots of eating to even it all out. Delicious cheese around every corner in Tuscany!
For a real treat, we got to take a cooking class with a lovely Tuscan lady. We cooked a meal in her kitchen, then got to eat it in her beautiful dining room. Sorry for the blurry photos, it was evening and I already had a glass of wine.
If you are ever in the town of Montalcino, Lena and her husband Domenico rent out two lovely apartments in their home and Lena teaches cooking. You can see more here.
