Italy – Off the Beaten Path

Don GovoniMay 19 - May 28, 2017
Benvenuti in Italia! Travel to Cento, Italy to meet Leigh and our host, Don Govoni, for our fifth unique culinary tour "off the beaten path" in the Emilia-Romagna region. Enjoy eight nights in beautiful Cento at the Hotel Europa and take leisurely day trips to the mountains, the plains and the Adriatic coast, all the while sampling the region’s splendid cuisine. Indulge in local specialties including handmade tortellini, cappellacci, and artisanal cured meats and cheeses. Eat, drink and be merry alongside the locals at a sagra as they celebrate and share their local specialty. Taste regional delicacies like borlenghi and tigelle – foods that even most Italians have never heard of, accompanied by local wines including the real Lambrusco. Savor the bounty of the sea where local fish and shellfish unique to the Adriatic are expertly prepared. These are just a few of the epicurean delights that await those who join us on this tour. Don spends months each year in his ancestral home and is excited to again showcase this region that is seldom explored by tourists.
