Culinary Artistry Unleashed: Master Mediterranean Flavors
To truly appreciate the art of Mediterranean cuisine, we take you inside the kitchen, so you are a part of the transformation of fresh produce, from the time it is plucked from the fields until it is served to the table. Guided by local chefs and experts, you’ll learn old recipes and culinary secrets to master the intricacies of homemade meals, many of which have been passed down through generations. Along with techniques, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the ingredients and the cultural heritage that makes each dish so special.
When the truffles are at their best, we visit one of the premier cooking schools in the Piedmont region to not only enjoy traditional dishes such as vitello tonnato, tajarin, and bûnet, but also prepare them ourselves. In Emilia-Romagna, we have the pleasure of being hosted by Massimo Spigaroli, who shows us the oldest prosciutto cellar in the world and gives an inspiring course on local pasta specialties, as well reveals the secret of the famous Culatello di Zibello. Learn how to incorporate traditional grains to create culinary masterpieces in South Tuscany, or perfect Sicilian sweets in a pasticceria class held by a Michelin-starred chef. Every feast trip includes opportunities to work alongside locals and try out preparing regional dishes.
Chop, season, and stir your way to an understanding of the artistry of Mediterranean cuisine. Listen to the stories behind recipes, savour the fragment aromas of herbs, sun-ripened vegetables, and olive oil, and feel the satisfaction of plating an impressive dish. On a trip with feast, you are not just a participant, but an apprentice; not only a connoisseur, but a creator. And you return home with something much more impressive than an ordinary souvenir—the ability to impress your friends and family with your new culinary skills!
