Highlights in 2015 include….
Puglia, Southern Italy
Authentic Puglian cooking set in an elegant, rural converted masseria (farmhouse) – total immersion 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 taste olive oil ‘the Italian way’ in an area that produces 70% of the total oil production in Italy.
Atlas mountains and Marrakech, Morocco
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) where we are treated to an exclusive Roman culinary adventure, with our very own Roman resident guide Stefano Spinetti. Markets, restaurants, wine and food tastings, authentic pizza making, and lakeside Roman picnics…..
