Cuisine---Italy

The Italian Cusine

Italian cuisine is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. They use the freshest seasonal ingredients possible, and then basic cooking techniques to simply enhance the natural flavor of the food. Family platters, inventive pizzas and regional Italian specialties combine with vintage wines to bring you a true taste of La Dolce Vita.

Start your culinary tour with Gourmet on Tour in the North, where Venice is waiting for you with its incredible charm and local markets full of fresh seafood. Explore Tuscany that produces some of Italy’s finest olive oils, sheep’s milk cheeses, and meat dishes. This region provides also one of the most famous wine in the whole world, Chianti that you can also try on one of our winetasting tours. If fresh and dried pastas are your weaknesses then you should absolutely get to the eternal city Rome with an expert guide and learn how to make them. Or you’re more a pizza guy? Discover the secrets of traditional Italian pizzas in bustling Naples and uncover the beauty of the secret Capri Island. Cook a feast with a local mamma overlooking the whitewashed cliff-side villages of the stunning Amalfi Coast or tour the charming hamlets of stunning Cinque Terre and Lake Como. Discover the Piedmont region searching for the best Barolo wine and participate in an exciting white truffles hunting. When getting to the South be enchanted by Puglia’s Trulli. Discover sunny Sicily, land of extremes and contrasts, a magnification of all things Italian.
