Enjoy this Special and first Toronto "Al Fresco" supper club with a special guest, Gaia Massai, olive oil and wine producer of her Family Farm   "Fattoria di San Quintino" in Tuscany.

Gaia will introduce us to some great tips of Olive oil use and also of her loved region of Tuscany, nothing better than an "Al fresco" environment to celebrate the Toscana region.

She distributes her "Gaia's plate" olive oil form her farm as well, the production of the olive oil is limited and  she'll give us a tasting prior to the dinner as well a complimentary glass of her Chianti.

    I thought I was actually sitting down at the table on the set of the fabulous movie, "Under The Tuscan Sun" ! It was a fabulous foodie experience in a rustic setting!

    Dinner was fabulous and the use of olive oil was true Tuscan cooking. Sitting on the patio we felt as if we were in Italy. Great experience.
