Amber Guinness was born in London in 1989 and grew up in Tuscany. She learned to cook at her mother’s side in the kitchen at Arniano, the farmhouse restored by her parents Jasper and Camilla. She went to the University of Edinburgh where she studied History & Italian literature, always working in her spare time as a cook. In 2014 she founded The Arniano Painting School, a residential painting holiday designed to breathe life back into Arniano after her father’s death. These luxury artist’s retreats are centred around creativity and food, and have been featured in The New York Times, House & Garden, Tatler, The Telegraph and Spectator Life. She now lives in Florence.
Her first book, A House Party in Tuscany will be published in March 2022 by Thames & Hudson.
