These fascinating learning holidays are specially designed for you and your family, friends, club or organisation — anyone who enjoys good food and drink and wants to find out where it comes from and how it's produced.
We guide you to a countryside you'd never find on your own in a magical land of 'il bello e il buono' (the beautiful and the good) where 'il tempo non corre' (time stands still). Hands-on activities like picking olives and making bread or cheese give you a real feel for the ingredients and cuisine. You are welcomed into the 'laboratories' and homes of small artisanal producers eager to show you how traditional foods have been made for centuries or how they have introduced new technology without compromising the end result. Meals in family restaurants and homes are times to relax and savour the fruits of the season and how the locals use them. The adventures are spiced with liberal sprinklings of shopping, walks, music, art, traditional crafts, gardens and architecture. For a taster click on the months below. (Group size: 1–10 people)
