Culinary Institute of Tuscany

Culinary Institute of Tuscany


We believe that a true passion for Italian cooking isn’t just created in the kitchen and classroom—it’s inspired by experiencing the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Italy firsthand. That’s why we created Olive Garden’s Culinary Institute of Tuscany. Here, in a quaint 11th century Tuscan village, more than 1,400 of our chefs and managers have been inspired by the art of authentic Italian cuisine


so that they can share their knowledge and passion with you.

At our Culinary Institute of Tuscany, our teams learn the secrets of great Italian cooking. Watch their videos to see how their experiences help them create Italian inspired specials you'll enjoy sharing with family and friends.
