"In the ‘farm to fork’ cooking class, the emphasis is taking the best seasonal ingredients and preparing them with traditional, local recipes."
"After the class, we all sit down to eat our efforts at a big outdoor table, lit by lanterns as it grows dark and thousands of starsoverhead come into view. Later we watch fireflies flash around in the dark before sleeping soundly, not even woken by the rooster next morning."
"This is life at La Tavola Marche, an agriturismo in the beautiful and unspoilt Le Marche region in Italy, between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast. Getting involved in local activities and traditions is exactly what the owners, Ashley and Jason Bartner, have done since they moved here from the US four years ago, immersing themselves in the local culture and language."
