Osso bucco alla Borrani
Gastronomic meals are an essential componant of our painting workshops in Tuscany. Creative cooking is art. This is why we enjoy so much experimenting with new ingredient combinations and arrive to our own original recipes.
We enjoy very much letting go in cooking as we do in painting by fining and refining our recipes such as Osso Bucco alla Borani, Just as the Machiaioli Artists did in Tuscany.
This way, we are able to offer a unique menu to the artists and art lovers attending our art courses in Tuscany. We invite you to try our recipe:
