Join Us in Italy!

Roman Countryside Culinary Adventure

Lazio, Italy
Join Chef Dana Reinhardt in exploring the incredible bounty of Lazio, Italy. The farm is covered with olive trees and vineyards and boasts a beautiful pool and vistas. This beautiful area is also home to many ancient Etruscan necropolis and ruins.

We will harvest seasonal produce and use meat from the heritage breed cattle, pigs and chickens located directly on or in proximity to the property. We will learn to make bread in the wood fire oven; master the tricks of hand-made pasta and forage for wild herbs and mushrooms in the surrounding woodlands.

The trip will also include visits to Sergio Mottura Winery for a wine tour of the Champagne cellars, wine tasting and dinner in Sergio's Wine Hotel; historic Tuscania with a visit to the local market and lunch in the medieval Abbey of San Giusto and we will make sheep’s milk Pecorino and Ricotta with an artisan cheesemaker.

Join us for a week of exploration, cooking, learning and laughing!
