The tour will include several hands-on cooking classes that focus on the specialties of the Veneto such as Risotto with Amarone, Shellfish Salad with Salsa Verde, Tiramisu, and Almond and Polenta "Cookies."
We'll stay at La Foresteria Serego Alighieri, the gorgeous family-estate-turned-resort owned by my friend Count Serego Alighieri (who is a direct descendant of Dante).
The estate has a large professional kitchen where we'll hold our hands-on cooking classes and make use of estate-produced wine, jam, honey, grappa, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and rice in our cooking.
We'll visit Venice and explore the legendary Rialto fish market, sample tapas at the Venetian baccaro, sip bellini, and ride the gondola; on another day, we'll journey to the delightful market town of Soave, and the medieval city of Verona, where Juliet lived. And we'll go to tastings of the fabulous local wines.
Group meeting point in Verona for pick-up and drop-off is: Porta Nuova train station.
