Join us for a memorable culinary journey in Friuli-Venezia
Our hands-on cooking vacations in some of Friuli's
most enchanting settings are indeed a memorable learning
experience about the foods and wines of a region with an
exquisite traditional cuisine and top-class wines.
Friuli-Venezia Giulia is home to the prized San Daniele
prosciutto and the tasty frico, which are often
served as antipasto. Gnocchi and risotto are
popular first courses, together with bean and barley soups
and jota, a very typical soup of Austrian origin.
As second course you can enjoy excellent seafood
from the Adriatic coast and a great variety of genuine
meats and game from the countryside, most often accompanied
by polenta and fresh produce.
Desserts include different types of strudels and
gubana, an exquisite cake with a filling of dry fruit
and grappa. The taste of these foods is exalted by
a proper pairing with wine, the pride of the region, which
reaches world-class level in eight DOC areas.
Participants will learn how to prepare all these specialties
and many other Italian recipes! Classes, suitable for all
levels - from beginners to professionals - are limited
to small groups (max. 10 participants) in order to
guarantee our guests a personalized service, a more relaxed
and friendly atmosphere and give them the possibility to
customize their vacation as much as possible.
Besides cooking classes followed by lunch or dinner paired
with the proper wines, the culinary programs also includes
day trips to wineries, cheese makers, prosciutto
factories, private tastings, as well as cultural excursions
to the many historical and delightful sites in this scenic
corner of Italy and, why not, the nearby countries of Austria,
Slovenia and Croatia!
All cooking tours include accommodation, excursions with
roundtrip transportation to the different sites, professional
narration by tour guide, meals and activities stated. However,
if you would like to explore the region by yourselves renting
your own car, we shall be glad to make all the arrangements
(itinerary planning, car hire, restaurant and winery reservations,
etc.) for your independent cooking vacation of a lifetime!
