Tuscany and Puglia Culinary Tours for 2020

Puglia & Beyond Tour - New Dates for 2020

Puglia - the heel of Italy's boot, all the way to the south, is a hot destination! Our September 20-26 tour sold out, but we have room from May 24-30, 2020. And we added a week from September 27 to October 3 so we can enjoy the bountiful harvest that early fall brings. We'll explore the sights and culinary highlights of Puglia and neighboring Basilicata...


Tuscany & Beyond Tour - June & September 2020

Our very popular tour of Tuscany with forays in Umbria, the Marches, and Emilia-Romagna is back -  from June 9-15, 2020 and September 12-18, 2020. Our Tuscan villa offers the opportunity to have our cooking lessons both indoors and outdoors, where a traditional wood fired oven and grill make the experience absolutely unique. It doesn't get much better than rolling out fresh pasta, kneading focaccia dough,  and roasting meats overlooking the Tuscan hills!  Click to see a slide show of our May 2019 tour!

Spinach and Cheese Focaccia

Spinach & Cheese Focaccia

The starting point for this focaccia is an unusual, very thin cheese-filled focaccia from the town of Recco in Liguria. During our May 2019 cooking tour to Tuscany, we added spinach to this focaccia, yielding a richer and more complex flavor. It was a big hit with our tour participants and can easily be recreated at home following our step by step recipe...
