Trentino Culinary Tour
7-Day/6-night Trentino Culinary Tour with Cooking Classes
September 3 – 9, 2017
Join me, Italian Chef Deborah Dal Fovo, as we travel to Trentino—the northern region of Italy that is home to my family origins and heritage. In this insider’s tour, I will take you to Andalo, my ancestral town nestled in the Dolomites, where we will breathe in the pure mountain air…then have it taken away by breathtaking views of the majestic Italian Alps that surround us. We’ll explore the natural wonders and culinary traditions of the region as we travel to the top of mountains to admire spectacular vistas and hike the trails, eat traditional meals at charming mountain chalets, watch as local food artisans create their exquisite products, taste and discover regional specialty foods and liqueurs, visit prestigious wineries and sip indigenous varietal wines, enjoy fabulous meals prepared by top chefs at local restaurants, and learn to cook authentic Trentino cuisine in specially designed cooking demonstrations by local chefs and in hands-on cooking classes guided by me and guest chefs. We’ll stay at a beautiful resort hotel designed for comfort and dedicated to wellness with a full spa and panoramic view of the Dolomites where we will relax and rejuvenate after our daily excursions. This is a rare opportunity to experience the spectacular natural, cultural and culinary splendors of the Dolomites and get a true taste of my ancestral region Trentino! The group size is limited so reserve your spot here.
