Chasing the last light of summer, I escaped for a weekend to the hills of Tuscany to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. We stayed in the breathtaking Vita Nova Casa Vacanze, chilled by the pool and ate way too many platters of Tuscan antipasto misto. We also participated in a truffle hunt with Pedro the Lagotto Romagnolo – organised by Mugello & Tuscany – along with a pasta masterclass to cook with our haul.
