including Lake Como, Portofino & the Cinque Terre
19-30 September 2012
Stretching from the Alps in the north through dramatic Lake Como to the fertile Po valley in the south, the region of Lombardy offers a wonderful culinary diversity. Historically separated from each other, the cuisine of each city and province is different and unique, with its own recipes and traditions. Just to the south, the scenic region of Liguria is home to the Italian Riviera, including famous destinations like Portofino and the Cinque Terre, and is well-known for its authentic, fresh and excellent local cuisine.
What better way to discover the delicious cooking of Lombardy and Liguria than with Mary Ann Esposito, host of the longest running cooking show on public television, Ciao Italia, now entering its twenty-third season. Mary Ann will travel with the group throughout the entire tour and conduct two hands-on cooking lessons in which she'll help you to prepare her favorite regional recipes. Her husband, wine expert Guy Esposito, will also provide an ongoing course on the wines of Lombardy and Liguria throughout the tour.
