Culinary Tours to Italy are back in 2019
Tuscany & Beyond Culinary Tour June  2019

TUSCANY & BEYOND: Week-long culinary vacation June 2019

We're so excited to announce our week-long food lover's tour of Tuscany, Umbria, Emilia-Romagna, and the Marches, scheduled for June 2-8, 2019. We’ll stay in a fifteenth-century Tuscan villa with a private pool. Mornings will be spent  cooking traditional Italian dishes for a shared al fresco lunch; afternoons will be all about sightseeing and culinary discovery. Thanks to the villa’s strategic location at the crossroads of Tuscany, Umbria, the Marches, and Emilia-Romagna, we’ll get to savor four distinct culinary traditions during our stay.  We’ll enjoy dinners at the area's best restaurants paired with each region's top-notch wines. Wine tastings, visits to olive oil mills, gelato excursions, and encounters with local food artisans will offer us full immersion in the pleasures of Italian cuisine. Space is limited! Call us at 917 602 1519 or email us at for more details!



From now until November 26, we'll throw in a FREE RUSTICO COOKING apron (valued at $20) with each gift certificate purchase of $110 or $120. Buy 2 certificates, and get 2 aprons!
