Umbria is a gourmet paradise and the ultimate way to see it is through the eyes of a celebrated food and wine expert! Jennifer McIlvaine of "Life Italian Style!" offers unique custom food and wine tours, cooking lessons and will even prepare a meal for you in our Villa. Her enogastronomic adventures will take you through Umbria to discover the best food artisans of our area. Highlights can include: hands-on cooking classes, cheese-making, seasonal farm tours--Chianina (the famed white cattle) and Cinta Senese pigs, complete with a butchery demonstration, how to make salumi, tour of a pasta factory, wine tasting and vineyard lunch, saffron picking in the mountains, foraging for the wild porcini mushrooms or amazing black truffles, wild greens and asparagus and participating in an olive harvest. Any season will find Jennifer foraging through the wild or searching local markets to find the best and freshest ingredients to share with our guests!
Jennifer will arrange bicycle tours through Umbrian valleys, stopping at small villages along the way or horseback riding through vineyards topped off with a fantastic picnic luncheon and wine tasting. Or arrange a cooking lesson with Jennifer and she will share secrets and traditional recipes of her friends, the Italian Nonnas.
Enjoy "Life Italian Style" during your stay at L'Antica Vetreria!
