I am so happy to be going back to Villa Pia with Bland Badger this Autumn. This retreat is a highlight of the year, in the most beautiful place on the Tuscany/Umbria border and boasting the best late summer/early autumn produce, stunning scenery and highly dangerous antiques markets. It's a deep dive into what Lorenzo would call 'puro Medioevo' but with more cream buns and bouquets and a little less barbarity.
I will be teaching an edible gifts workshop, hoping to work some edible (probably almond and lemon) based magic, and would love to see you there.
In the meantime, here are some photos by Charlotte Bland, which speak louder than my rambling words.
