Never before has humanity placed such great importance and spent so much time and energy deciding what to eat and preparing their food! It is indeed the golden age of nutrition, cooking, cook books, chefs, specialty ingredients and gourmet cooking shows and Le Baccanti says bring it on! We love that the world is finally paying attention to this important argument and enjoying themselves immensely along the way. At the forefront of this movement is the Mediterranean diet, and Italian cooking and wine in particular. The Italian kitchen, with its fresh ingredients, use of healthful olive oil, pasta, seasonal vegetables, fish and legumes is truly one of a kind. We invite you to get to the heart (or stomach) of the argument through one of our fantastic one-day cooking classes throughout Italy on your next trip or if you have the time, let us put together a custom gourmet food and wine trip for you your tastebuds will thank you.
