Courses with Artisans
Intensive courses for professionals and keen amateurs consisting of theoretical and practical sessions during which you learn with Italian professionals in your area of interest. Since there is a lot of hands-on practice, you return home being able to produce what you've been learning about. Course instructors are available after the course to answer questions by email.
Meal times give you the chance to taste typical local dishes, and the dinner in a private Italian home is always judged beyond compare. If there happens to be a village festival or Slow Food event during the course, we slip it in too.
