Food and Wine
Breathtaking views of mountain peaks and valleys from a cheese maker’s chalet, silvery green olive groves terraced down to the blue sea, a cool tufo cellar where you sip a wine that is the liquid essence of the fiery Sicilian sun, dawn hush of chestnut woods wreathed in autumn mist, in the company of the “tartufaio” and his faithful dog.
Your search for the secrets of the traditional flavours of Italy will take you into the heart of the Italian countryside, from the Alps to the islands.
Italians cling jealously to the age old rituals that produce the superb foods and wine they are so proud of, so entwined with their history and identity. In the vaulted hall of a medieval castle with its echoes of banquets long past, in the stone flagged kitchen of a Puglia farmhouse, you will discover the soul of Italy.
