Here we are in the middle of winter. We love the season, but it has been unusually cold this year. That has us turning our eyes to a little warmer weather and the bounty of the Italian table. So as a way to tide us over until we are supping once again on Italian fare this spring, I’ve put together some food shots from our Taste of Orvieto trip last year. Hey, it is just a plane ride away! Cheers!
Ah, the thought of honey, bees buzzing in the warm air, gathering for the golden nectar.
Then there was our cooking class where we went to the market to buy our goods with chef, and returned for hours of cooking. Oooh the good!
We picked olives, then took them to be pressed into olive oil. You can’t believe the color and taste of just pressed oil. It is sublime.
We went to our favorite vineyard for lunch paired with their fabulous wines.
One more chance to cook in the Umbrian countryside.
So yes, it is winter, but I feel better now. I have all of this to look forward to with Taste of Orvieto!
|Kristi and Bill Steiner began leading “learning vacations” to Orvieto, Italy in 2003 and were founding members of Slow Travel Tours. Through Adventures in Italy they provided a cultural immersion experience. Many trips included the pursuit of some kind of creative work that complemented and reinforced exploration of Italy’s culture. Relationships built over the years enabled Kristi and Bill to provide experiences that a typical visitor to Orvieto never gets.
The Steiners retired in 2017 and sold Adventures in Italy to Michelle Logue, who has continued as a member of the Slow Travel Tours group. Michelle continues to offer trips in the same format and with the same spirit that Kristi and Bill hosted for 14 years.
