In partnership with The Chopping Block, Chicago’s recreational cooking school, and author/sommelier, Viktorija Todorovska, Onward Travel is delighted to announce a special week of culinary and cultural discovery in Italy.
During Cook Like a Tuscan, our small group will stay at a beautiful stone villa in Panzano in Chianti. Grapevines and pomegranate trees come up almost to the doorstep and the charming town is a short walk away.
We’ll visit Tuscany in autumn, when the olives and grapes are being picked and pressed to perfection. It’s the perfect time of year to savor some of Italy’s best wines and ingredient driven dishes. Explore regional Tuscan cooking and expand your culinary repertoire with four hands-on in-depth cooking courses. We’ve selected four outstanding chefs to guide us through a hands-on culinary program. Time in the kitchen is complemented by epicurean field trips, visits to medieval towns and gothic Siena, and opportunities to walk amongst the vines and views.
From our base in the heart of Chianti wine country, we’ll travel throughout the region and enjoy the local charms. Join The Chopping Block’s travel and food loving community for a once-in-a-lifetime culinary immersion in Tuscany.
