A Taste of Abruzzo and the Italian Adriatic

Learning how to cook Italian food is a secret dream for many people. During this cooking holiday you will have the opportunity to learn the recipes of traditional Italian and Abruzzese cuisine, from homemade pasta and gnocchi to desserts and other culinary delights. These dishes come from the oldest and most authentic recipes handed down from family to family. Special attention is given to territorial and seasonal foods like fresh local vegetables, fish and fruit, but also to the produce you can find in your local market when you get back home. You will have the opportunity to visit the traditional fishing huts called Trabocco constructed along the coastline. You'll hear the silence of Old Abruzzi, you will get lost among its colors and you will remember its flavors for years to come. It will be difficult to forget the breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso - the highest mountains of central Italy – from the reserves and the natural parks to the countryside and its medieval villages. 6 Nights Palazzo accommodations, 6 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 6 dinners, round-trip Rome Airport transfers, Olive Mill Tour & Pasta Cooking Class, Sommelier’s Wine Pairing Class, Vasto Tour & Trabocco Fishing Houses, Peasant Food & Biscotti Baking Class, visit to Agnone and Bell Foundry, Cheese Making and Porchetta and Pizza Making Farewell Dinner Class
