Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution: Farm to Fork Cooking Class

Join Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day on May 19th at La Tavola Marche for a very special farm to fork cooking class in Italy.  The focus of this class will be the importance of eating seasonally, with food sourced locally as well as how to start a garden at home.

So what is the Food Revolution?

It is the brain child of Jamie Oliver and his idea that together we can make a difference: a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world’s food issues. All around the globe, people will work together to make a difference. Food Revolution Day is about connecting with your community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers' markets. We want to inspire change in people’s food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone.

In support of the food revolution - Meet in the kitchen of our 300 year-old stone farmhouse La Tavola Marche, tie on your handmade apron (our gift to you) and head into the garden to collect the ingredients for your cooking class with a stop at the chicken coop to pick up fresh eggs! These are hands-on, roll up your sleeves, dive-right on in classes. All the recipes will be in-season & local emphasizing the importance of eating this way. We will discuss how to start a small at-home garden and ways to support local farmers in your area as well. With baskets full of produce we will return to the kitchen to prepare our meal together including antipasti, first course, second course, side-dish & dessert - a five course meal in under 4 hours! The menu will be based entirely by what's in-season & sourced locally (in our garden).
