From farm to table in Tuscany

February 8th, 2018 by


Montepulciano Tuscany Italy

Two new Tuscany tours for “foodies”

There is no word for “foodie” in Italian; Italians are foodies in the deepest sense of the word. In Italy, food is not simply a meal, it is a culture, a way of life. Ask an Italian to tell you about a dish and they will not just tell you about the fresh local ingredients, but the times and place and people connect to it. Food in Italy is not just is Italy itself.

“When Italians say ‘Mangia! Mangia!’ they’re not just talking about the food…the food was, of course, meant to nourish us, but is was also meant to satisfy, in some deeper way, our endless hunger for one another…We remembered who we were through food.”  
-Sergio Esposito, Passion on the Vine
