Join Chef Dana Reinhardt in exploring the incredible bounty of Tuscania, Italy. Casa Caponetti, is situated on a stunning 125 acre olive farm and home to an ancient Etruscan necropolis, comprising one of the largest single ruins on private land.

We will harvest seasonal produce from the extensive biodynamic vegetable gardens (27 varieties of tomatoes!) and use meat from the heritage breed cattle, pigs and chickens located directly on the property. We will learn to make pizza in the wood fire oven; master the tricks of hand-made pasta and forage for wild herbs and mushrooms in the surrounding woodlands.

The trip will also include visits to Sergio Mottura Winery for a wine tour, tasting and dinner; historic Tuscania with a visit to the local market and lunch overlooking the mediaeval walls and we will make sheep’s milk Pecorino and Ricotta with an artisan cheesemaker.

Join us for a week of exploration, cooking, learning and laughing!
