Sandra spoke of the benefits of the Italian and Mediterranean diet, which underscores fresh, local, and seasonal and utilizes products like quality olive oil and the best tomatoes which are antioxidants.

Many of Sandra’s alumni got to enjoy visiting and tasting the foods we learned to prepare and enjoy in Italy and some new favorites! There were other guests in attendance who had not yet visited Toscana Saporita. “Toscana Saporita needs to be at the very top of your bucket list,” Mr. Bollaci said. “If you ever dreamed of attending cooking school in Tuscany, this is your dream come true! The very best people and experience, period. Go see what makes them my first Platinum a Palate, it’s about the people and a life changing experience! Sandra and her family are one-of-a-kind, and Toscana Saporita is a gem.”
