For the last 30 years, Anna Tasca Lanza has attracted the likes of Alice Waters and the late Julia Child–so we know it’s the real deal. What began as a project on her family’s 19th-century Sicilian villa became a true farm-to-table way of learning and cooking, where every student learns as much about the garden and sources of the ingredients as they do about cooking them. After her passing in 2006, Anna Tasca’s daughter, Fabrizia, took over the school, making sure to honor her mother’s practices. Courses include everything from a one-day class to a five-day workshop, and range from lessons in horticulture and cheese making to wine production to coffee roasting. There’s also a 10-week program available if you’re looking for something more intensive. Photo: Nathalie Kennedy
