Residential cooking course in Maremma

Maremma is the wildest area in Tuscany, situated in the south of the region along the coast it is still well preserved. You can find there the Uccellina Natural Park and the Burano World Wild Found Oasi. Maremma is also the new boarder for the Tuscan wine, starting from the Morellino di Scansano base, wine makers in the area offer wines that are full bodied and strong. The traditional wild-boar salami and salsicce accompanied by the hand-made pasta Tortelli and Tagliatelle are some of the typical specialities of the Maremma cuisine.
