Authentic Puglian cooking set in an elegant, rural converted

in the food and culture of this unspoilt region of Italy. Plenty of hands on
cooking, make orecchiette ‘ear shaped’ pasta regional to Puglia. Learn how to

Atlas mountains and
An exotic Moroccan cooking holiday starting in the village
of Imlil in the Atlas mountains and ending, by way of contrast, in the bustling
and colourful markets of Marrakech where we enjoy two cooking sessions in Riad
Monceau. A truly authentic experience – discover the food culture that is so
intertwined with every day life, for example, the boulangerie and the hammam in
Imlil share the same building and wood fired stove!
A Roman gastronomic
experience in Frascati, Rome
On our gastronomic tour of Castelli Romani, just beyond
Rome, we stay in the pretty town of Frascati (name sake of the sparkling wines)

own Roman resident guide Stefano Spinetti. Markets, restaurants, wine and food
tastings, authentic pizza making, and lakeside Roman picnics…..

Tetbury Food Festival – Call my Quaff 20th
delighted to be partnering with Binends at the Bear and Woeful Dane Cheeses to
provide a wine tasting evening with a difference! All money raised will be
going to the Pied Piper Appeal which was started as a charity in 1992 to
improve the lives of sick children in Gloucestershire.
A fun, informal wine based game called 'Call My Quaff'. Perfect for groups of 6 to 25. Guests are split into teams, and will taste 5-6 wines with the bottle labels obscured. Hosted by two members of the Bin Ends team, each team member will each give a description of the same wine; one description will be the truth, the other a lie! Teams have to decide which staff member they think is telling the truth - and which staff member is lying!
The winning team who get the most correct guesses will win a bottle of sparkling wine to take away. (Think Call My Bluff with wine instead of words!) This game is great fun to play and lasts approximately an hour. This is perfect for novices and wine buffs alike and is a great birthday/anniversary present. Also perfect for corporate groups/parties.
