Good Tastes of Tuscany caters to Wild Oats Cooking classes in Tuscany: U.S natural food supermarket chain reward employees with a Tuscan cooking class










Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 5, 2005

Wild Oats, with a family of over 110 stores in 24 states and British Columbia, and an annual sales figure of more than $ 1 billion dollars, chose Good Tastes of Tuscany, a division of Connextions Group, to reward its employees for good performance.

The chosen staff members underwent a one-day advanced cooking class in Tuscany at the 13th century villa. The grand finale was a dinner party at Villa PandolfiniÂ’s ornately frescoed dance hall. The heady mix of gourmet cuisine, vintage wine and soul-stirring music in an ambiance bursting with tradition and culture left the guests replete.                                                

The Villa Pandolfini, which, in its rich past, accommodated such guests as Napoleon Bonaparte and King Charles VIII of France, has high vaulted ceilings, a fireplace in the kitchen, a loggia looking out into a breathtaking renaissance garden and gold gilded mirrors and antique furniture.

About Tuscany Cooking Classes:

Good Tastes of Tuscany provides hands-on coaching in traditional Tuscan cuisine and offers intensive, single-day classes tailored to meet specific needs and varying proficiency levels, as well as more prolonged courses. The cooking classes in Tuscany are customized to suit individual requirements and there is even a course for young chefs. “Wine appreciation classes and tours are also conducted,” says Massimo Brogi, Media Relations Manager.

The highly experienced cooking instructors, Lisa and Maurizio, both native to Florence, impart tips that canÂ’t be found in any cookery book and teach traditional Tuscan recipes. Participants learn to make a complete Italian meal, from appetizers to dessert. The extra virgin olive oil and the wine come from the scenic estates of the Villa Pandolfini itself.

The Villa Pandolfini is a mere 10-minute drive from Florence and pick-up facilities are available from the city. Rooms can be rented out at the villa itself, and visitors can make it their base, not only for the cooking courses but also for sightseeing trips.

The Courses Covered by the Cooking Classes in Tuscany:

Good Tastes of Tuscany offers lessons in Italian cooking round the year, and more classes were added this autumn. The courses are affordably priced, and there is something to suit every requirement, regardless of cooking experience, knowledge of the region or proficiency in the Italian language.

Wild Oats offers a complete range of natural foods and supplements, and features environmentally conscious and cruelty-free body care and household products. It is committed to providing customers with the best of natural foods and health products and imports extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany for its stores.

Good Tastes of Tuscany, which uses only locally available, seasonal and freshly procured ingredients for its cooking courses, was a natural choice for Wild Oats to give its valued employees a rewarding experience. “A highly-enjoyable event that was very helpful for our business and also for our knowledge,” was how one satisfied participant described the trip of a lifetime.
