BLOG: Cookery & Wine Holidays Across Italy
Below is an extract from Italia Magazine, written by our own Tony, about cookery and wine holidays across Italy:
Ecco La Cucina
One of the best ways to truly experience a country as beautiful and diverse as Italy is by taking a culinary tour that fully immerses you in the delights of its regional cuisine and culture.
Ecco La Cucina is located in the heart of Tuscany, near the medieval city of Siena. Participants stay together in small groups in a beautiful villa or world-class hotel, sharing meals and cooking classes, taking tours of medieval towns and making visits to wineries and artisan food producers.
Hands-on classes are held in a 900-year-old stone kitchen where you’ll learn to make pasta and local dishes paired with regional wines. Each class is followed by lunch in the lovely garden, creating close camaraderie with your fellow enthusiasts. The winery visits and tastings will enable you to learn the many diverse methods and grapes used in making Italian wine.
A week-long culinary tour with Ecco La Cucina is the perfect way for any lover of food and wine to experience Italy and is a vacation you will always remember.
