Italy Culinary Vacation

Italy Culinary Vacation

Which country is most suitable?

Italy's top gastronomic destinations: Tuscany and Umbria of course, as they both promise a unique tasteful trip. Worldwide known are Chianti and Montepulciano wines, novello olive oil, bruschetta and prosciutto, truffles and pasta, pizza and pecorino cheese. All this precious and tasteful ingredients are produced in Umbria and Tuscany, sister regions with a spectacular climate, where nature grows its richness.

Not only nature is important, but the chefs have their own quality. They usually prepare their dishes with 4/8 ingredients of the highest quality, not too few, not too many as to conserve the original taste of each ingredient: pasta, pizza, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, parmigianno and prosciutto.

Start from a "panzanella" in summer, with homemade bread, red tomatoes, onion and cucumber; in autumn a "zuppa toscana" or tuscna soup, with lentils, farro and beans; "filetto al balsamico" meat fillet in balsamic vinegar sauce; "pizza margherita" with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella; thousands of dessert for your palate!

Last for lust! Any occasion has its own dish. Try "frittelle di riso" fried rice fritters, are a Tuscan tradition for St. Joseph's day, March 19. Do not miss the numerous festivals being held on this day to celebrate Italy's "father's day".

If you wish to learn some of Italian secrets, ask our chef! He will be glad to show you.
