On day 1, arrive at your beautiful agriturismo, a working farm and inn where you’ll enjoy a meal prepared right on the farm each day. You’ll enjoy beautiful accommodations as well as the opportunity to meet other guests who share your passion for slow food, cooking and sustainable farming.
On day 2, visit one of Italy’s most beautiful hill towns on Market Day. Your guide will navigate the incredible fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and spices while offering insights on the culinary history of the town and region. Stay for pranzo (mid-day lunch) or sample gelatos at a local gelateria.
Cook to your heart’s content on day three in a personalized cooking class in an intimate venue overlooking one of Italy’s beautiful cities. Learn the classics or expand your knowledge of Italy’s seasonal treasures, and stay for a special meal with the instructor.
On day four, visit three unique wineries with your certified guide, and see how the history of winemaking evolved in Umbria and Tuscany. Visit during harvest season and even participate in the harvest before enjoying a guided winetasting with the master vintner.
Visit one of Italy’s famous food festivals on day 5, and experience the region’s most flavorful produce at its peak. (Perhaps during truffle season?) Add some side trips to shop for maiolica (Italian ceramics), leather or jewelry, or soak in the historic treasures around every corner.
Visit Italy’s premier cooking school on day 6 to learn the secrets of gelato, gnocchi or the perfect ragu. If you are you done cooking, visit an aromatic cellar where salumi or culatello are being made and cured. See what makes them so special and the time that it takes to make by those who lovingly adhere to the old traditions. In the evening, join together with your party and new friends back at your agriturismo to share a final farm to table meal, complete with homemade pastas, salumi and local cheeses.
