I am now offering monthly workshops, weekly one day market and seasonal cooking classes and more, including wine classes with my sommelier husband Marco Lami, at ENOTECA MARILU, our new enoteca and cooking school in San Miniato, halfway between Florence and Pisa. See more information on our classes and Seasonal Tuscan workshops here.

“Thank you Emiko and Marco for creating such a transformative experience! You both did such an amazing job in bringing us into your family and life, along with the delicious food and never ending glasses of wine! I had such an amazing time that I will forever cherish and remember!” — Sweet, New York City

“The experience in Tuscany was amazing for me. Just what I needed at this time in my life: disconnect a little from everyday stress and madness, and connect with the things that make me happy, share good times with people, cook, drink and have a good time. Thanks to you and Marco for the work, the love, the predisposition, the smiles, and the passion you put into this great experience. I will never forget it!” — Eli, Buenos Aires

“I can’t stop thinking about the most wonderful retreat week & telling anyone who will listen!  And look at my ka-zillion pictures! Thank you both for the unique experiences and the wine & cooking that we did… We are anxious for you to name the dates for your next fabulous retreat.” — Sandy, Florida
