For our honeymoon, my husband and I spent a week in the Tuscany region of Italy, attending the Toscana Saporita Cooking School. After a fabulous breakfast each morning, we had our daily cooking lesson – learning to prepare a traditional Italian dish or a new cooking technique. Lunch typically consisted of whatever foods we prepared that morning (along with plenty of amazing wines) and after a brief rest, our group would enjoy a local excursion for the afternoon before returning to a wonderful dinner prepared by our talented cooking instructors (oh yes – including more amazing wines!).
It was a fabulous week spent learning to cook new dishes, making new friends, and for us, exploring a new country. This recipe for Tuscan Roasted Potatoes was adapted from one of the recipes we came home with after our week at cooking school. It’s a simple and flavorful way to prepare roasted potatoes with olive oil, wine, garlic and a generous amount of seasonings and herbs. Not only has this become one of our favorite recipes, but it also reminds us of our wonderful honeymoon whenever we serve it.
