For travellers who want to bring home more than memories as a holiday souvenir, a gourmet tour to Italy must be the most pleasant way imaginable of gaining new skills and a deeper knowledge of the ingredients used in the kitchen. There’s something about having a holiday and at the same time achieving something. You have the satisfaction that when the holiday is over it doesn't simply recede into the past as a happy memory and a multitude of pictures. The holiday remains a source of ongoing pleasure when you refine your new found skills with now familiar ingredients and recreate the dishes at home with confidence.
Kitchen Antics tours offer sightseeing ,culture and retail therapy while also broadening your knowledge of food and wine. As well as demonstrations and hands on classes with expert local chefs, participants see Italian cuisine in action in a number of excellent restaurants (where the emphasis is on the food and not the show). We visit primary producers and learn the secrets of the quintessential Italian products and learn not merely about cooking techniques but about selecting ingredients, using spices and condimenti and food presentation. We investigate, during visits to celebrated vineyards and cellars, the astonishing range of local wines (Italians are very moderate drinkers, but have strong ideas on whose wine is best and what wine goes with what). The tour group stays in characteristic family-run rural villas, well appointed hotels and visit some of the most beautiful and historic towns and villages of Italy.
Kitchen Antics tours are limited to small intimate groups of twelve participants and are personally escorted by tour leaders, Max Paganoni and Susan Williams. The big complicated decisions and bookings have been made for you with enough leisure time to explore the sights with the option of joining other members of the group or the tour leaders. All you have to do is relax and surrender yourself to the experience, and enjoy your value for money holiday,stress free!
Get together a group of 12 people and we will schedule a tour just for you.
Kitchen Antics Tours can be booked through our sole travel agent, Travelcall.
