One-day Activities: Italian Gourmet Experience

“My weaknesses have always been food and men – in that order.”
Dolly Parton

If you are staying in the region why not spend a day with us? We offer Gourmet cooking lessons and day food tours with wonderful food and wine for couples and groups based in the southern Marche. 

On a typical day you will go shopping with chef Fabio to select the finest ingredients then you will learn how to turn the wonderful local fresh ingredients into traditional rural Italian dishes. Taught by a local chef Fabio, you will learn the secrets of creating the tastes, textures and flavours of Italy. To round off a truly memorable day sit down to dinner and relax with your companions and enjoy a meal at Fabio’s fabulous, atmospheric, TripAdvisor 5 star rated restaurant, Castello de Marte, Cossignano. Dinner is included in the price of the day.

With prices for the day starting at just €100 per person or €160 for a full day with accommodation, you can be assured of a gourmet day out to remember.

And if you are interested including other activities such as wine tasting or visiting artisan food producers we can plan a day to suit your group’s particular interests. If you need to know more about the type of activities we can offer please explore this website as you will find plenty of information and photographs. Depending on your language we should be able to supply a translator.
