plan now to go to Italy with Mara

What are you doing this fall? It's not too late to join me in Italy for a Culinary Adventure! The harvest season is the perfect time to beat the heat, the crowds and enjoy an off the beaten path experience!! October 14-21st, 2017 days, 7 nights, 5 Regions from north to south From Piedmont to Puglia with stops in Emilia Romagna and Le Marche to get to the origins of organic Parmasan Cheese, Balsamic Vinegar, Culatello, Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil, Adriatic Seafood, Enjoy wines from top Barolo, Barbaresco and Verdiccio Producers, a Once in a Lifetime Truffle hunt in Piedmont, the ancient and undiscovered village of Orsara di Puglia, a night in Sorrento and a grand finale lunch on the Amalfi coast. After taking a Master of Italian Cooking Program in the Marche region, I have been leading small, exclusive culinary tours to Italy since 2004. With a private driver and a custom itinerary featuring the best artisanal producers and chefs you will experience an off the beaten path tour of Italy that will leave you feeling a sense of friendship and connection with local chefs and producers and an understanding of the culinary landscape of Italy. Have you always dreamed of going to Sicily? Contact me to book a private tour of Sicily in 2018. After 4 culinary focused trips to the region I have figured it out! We can rent a villa and I will cook for you or give you private cooking classes or let me plan your custom itinerary! "Travelling with Mara to Italy was a once in a lifetime experience. I was treated like a dear friend and visitor, not like a tourist, everywhere we went. Her "insider" knowledge and contacts are unparalleled, not to mention the fantastic wine and food you will be introduced to!" ~ Whitney Laughlin, fall of 2014 trip Contact me for questions, pricing and reservations Check out this You Tube video on my blog with Italy/Sicily trip highlights by award winning filmaker Craig Noble The trip starts in Piedmont, home of white truffles, fine Barolo and Barbaresco wines and the Slow Food movement. Get to the heart of iconic Italian ingredients, from hunting for truffles to hand made pasta, fine organic Balsamic Vinegar and fresher pressed virgin olive oil Fresh white truffles! Our trip finishes with a visit to the Amalfi coast, a lunch at a Michelin star restaurant and a relaxed evening strolling the town of Sorrento Visit an organic producer of Parmasan cheese to see how it is produced, from the milking of the cows to the making and aging of the cheese Off the beaten path in Puglia: It is always a highlight to visit to charismatic chef Peppe Zullo's Paradiso, an incredible farm, villa and vineyard, in the ancient village of Orsra in the Dauna Mountains of Puglia I am an annual attendee of the in Toronto, one of the Food & Beverage industry's best events.
