Tours from Rome - Day trips from Rome - COOKING CLASS IN ABRUZZO

COOKING CLASS IN ABRUZZO

This tour is completely new and for sure one of the best day trips ever!

One of our great English-Speaking drivers we will be waiting for you at the lobby of your hotel ready to depart no later than 07:30 am.

It allows you to have a complete and general overview of a wonderful region of Italy, called Abruzzo. We came up with this new service because of the many requests of our tourists that once in Italy and maily while staying in Rome, wanted to go East of Rome towards their Native land: Abruzzo. For one day or a few hours, they just wanted to step on the land of their childhood, eat the food that their parents fed them with or just have an off-the-beaten track tour. With our comfortable and brand new cars/minivans we will drive first South of Rome through the A1 (highway that connects Milan to Naples) then cut through the Apennine Mountains and in around one hour we will reach our destination. The ride is of about 2 hours and 30 minutes but the time will fly thanks to the wonderful landscape of the regions!

Carunchio, an immaculate town up high on the hills! This is  a wonderful Medieval town once completely walled and today residence of no more than 750 inhabitants. Carunchio is now listed among the “ 100 most beautiful villages of Italy” because of its location and its architectural quaintness. Like in all Italian villages there is also a magnificent church with its 1600s pipe organ and Palaces of late Renaissance European aristocratic families such as Palazzo Castelli and the most important of the two Palazzo Tour d’Eau both located in the highest part of the town.

Tour d’Eau Palace - a castle built in 1730s - is indeed our location and homebase where we will be cooking and dining on our own creation.

The first step will be A GREAT COOKING CLASS. The owner of the Castle, Massimo, will lead you to the amazing kitchen with a class size of maximum 8 people. Each partecipant has his/her own space to work in while partaking in the activity. Our guide in the kitchen is the talented and experienced Cheryle Molino. Some of the exquisite dessert recipes will also be taught by Dino, Palazzo Tour d'Eau's chef. Be sure that you cook well because in the end you will be eating your “food work of art”. The whole experience after the cooking, the wine drinking and the eating will be over around 02:00 pm  and at this point we will all be ready for the second part of the day:

You can choose then betweem the following experiences:

 

  • Artisan Olive Oil maker factory + Salami Maker in Vasto and San Salvo
  • In Agnone visit the bell foundry and Cheese Maker

 

After this intense day when it is maximum 04:30 pm we will make our way back to Rome. And you will be back at your hotel around 07:30 pm.

The beauty of this tour is that you can decide when to do it and for how long you want to stay at the castle because the Palazzo Tour d’Eau is not just a location for cooking classes but it has its own wonderful bedrooms for a longer stay or overnight. Our friend and owner Massimo can surely take care of you for longer than one day being your own friendly-guide through the marvellous areas of Abruzzo.
