1. We Have Fun While We Eat, Drink & Tour together.
Suzanne, our guide and an Umbrian cookbook author, takes us to great restaurants, arranges for us to see two top-rated wineries and Italy's # 1 rated olive oil producer, and she shows us her favorite sites. As well as seeing Umbria, Suzanne's tours include cooking lessons and wine tasting.
2. Feel Like a Local!
We stay in a beautifully restored ancient villa that's just a ten-minute walk along the Tevere River to historic downtown. Take a daily walk to town for a cappuccino, and feel like a local.
3. We Do All the Work While You Have Fun!
Our tours are intimate and unforgettable with a maximum of fourteen participants. The tours are ideal for someone who wants to relax while we do all of the work. The tours are also perfect for a single person traveling alone who wants to enjoy company. And for couples who are looking for a stress-free, memorable time together.
Cookbook Author & Tour Guide in Umbria
I've been in love with good food since I was a kid. So naturally, I choose to spend my career in the culinary & wine worlds. Driven by my passion for food & my love of Italy, I dropped everything and moved to Umbria, where I lived for 1-1/2 years. All of my work & research on the cuisine, culture, and wine of Umbria paid off. Thomas Dunne Books published my Umbrian cookbook in 2010! Now I offer a Food & Wine Tour in Umbria every September. I want my participants to come away with the essence of Umbria. Through food--cooking and the pleasure of sharing meals together--and getting to know wine and its part in every day life, and touring we all come away with a good sense of the culture and people. Please join me in Umbria to enjoy the trip of a lifetime.
