Made in Le Marche

 This spring escape to lovely Le Marche with these fabulous foodie getaway's in Italy! Lush fields of wild greens, crates of overflowing artichokes, handmade meals & a cooking class in the countryside with a professional chef in his rustic kitchen! La Tavola Marche (farm, inn & cooking school).

Not to hate on Tuscany, but not everything made in Italy (especially food & wine) is from Toscana. They just know how to market it best!! That is part of why we created the holiday "Made in Le Marche" to showcase and share a few of our favorite, unique and locally famous artisan goods from the pungent formaggio di fossa (cheese aged in pits), Lacrima wine (a grape that only grows in one tiny town in all of Italy and the vines predate the Romans!) to the award winning craft beer and grappa of one of the last artisan family run distillers in Italy, Collesi...not to mention the porchetta (whole deboned pig stuffed with wild fennel and herbs) of Le Marche is hands down the best in Italy! Did you know the Romans built the road from Rome to Fano (via Flaminia) partly because of the fields of farro grown here?! Most people have never heard of this wonderful region rich in culinary traditions and we are happy to share it with our guests! We will eat & drink our way through the region with tours, tastings & local guides plus 3 diverse cooking classes to highlight the recipes from the sea, rolling hills and into the woods of the Apennines!
