If you travel to one place in Tuscany, spend a day cooking with Fausto at Sovestro in Poggio. Learn to make homemade pasta, gnocchi, ragu, and tiramisu. Sample the wine and olive oil made from the grapes and olives grown on the estate. Enjoy the fruits of your labors on the terrace overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan countryside and San Gimignano....
