February 2015: Master Butchering Workshops (Chianti & Parma)

Immerse yourself in the unique culture and lifestyle of each of the twenty regions of Italy by experiencing the passion of food and wine in the kitchen, at the table, and in the marketplace. Each day includes either hands-on cooking classes or demonstrations at local restaurants, along with visits to each region's food artisans. The classes are taught in English or fully translated, and offer you the experience of regional, seasonal Italian cuisine.

Courses are directed by Pamela Sheldon Johns, cookbook author and culinary professional. A regular visitor to Italy since 1983, Pamela has spent nearly twenty years working there, overseeing week-long culinary programs and exploring the backroads of Italian food culture. She lives in Tuscany with her family.
