Savour Italy Culinary Vacations

Culinary Vacations for Lovers of Food and Wine.

Design your own dream cooking vacation to Italy!

What you didn't know about Italian cuisine.

It is surprising how many people who believe they are familiar with Italian cooking are unaware of the regional differences that exist. Basically, Italian cuisine is a combination of vegetables, grains, fruits, fish, cheeses and a scattering of meats usually seasoned and cooked with olive oil (with the exception of the far north). The reliance upon what the country can produce has shaped a diet popular for centuries, particularly with the poorer Italian people, and is called la cucina povera. Now we are seeing a resurgence of this "poor people's food" and the Mediterranean diet is being touted as the model around which we should restructure our eating habits.

Here - take a bite, this is our menu of culinary tours:
