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.

Our itineraries are accompanied by Pamela Sheldon Johns. Pamela is a licensed Tour Escort and works according to the itinerary we set for you. She has spent a great amount of time in the many regions of Italy, and has written several books about traditional regional Italian cooking.

2023 Workshops

21-27 May: Isola del Giglio, off the coast of Tuscany
One of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, Giglio is 90% undeveloped, and this is good news for us. Our walks will be among the natural Mediterranean vegetation, sprinkled with the spring's wildflowers. The sea around us is still in a most natural state with views that seem to go to the end of the earth. A quiet pervades, as there are few roads and, as a result, few vehicles. Walks are easy to moderate. Proper shoes and small backpack with ref-fillable water bottle is required. There are some steep stone stairs to our second destination that can be taken at your own pace.
Delicious details on request.
