Spring 2024 Food & Wine Workshop
March 26-April 2, 2024
This week is devoted to the traditions of spring in Southern Italy. We'll forage for herbs and wild asparagus in the foothills and hunt for black truffles with expert truffle dogs in the mountains of the Cilento National Park. We'll visit the 3,000-year-old temples at Paestum and taste the IGP Paestum artichoke.
In the kitchen, we'll learn to make the traditional stuffed breads of the Easter season with local women and see how fresh ricotta is made.
A highlight of the week will be a cooking class at Antica Trattoria di Pietro, open since 1934, and one of Italy's most beloved historic restaurants. This trattoria retains recipes and traditions that are disappearing in modern Italy.
On Easter Sunday, guests can attend church in the local village if they like. In the afternoon, we'll sit down for a traditional Easter dinner. For Pasquetta, we'll again head to the countryside for a picnic lunch.
