All-Inclusive Tuscan Cooking Getaway with Chef Michele Forgione and Olive Oil Expert Nancy Harmon Jenkins

Type of Event Class, Workshop
Villa Campestri Olive Oil ResortFlorence
First Year of Event2010

AmorOlio: Six days of tastings, hands-on classes, discussions, all aimed at improving knowledge of extra-virgin olive oil, how to choose it and how to use it in the kitchen and at the table.

In a one-of-a-kind cultural immersion, the focus is extra-virgin olive oil: through tastings, cooking classes, traditional dinners, visits to wineries, cheese-makers, markets, and offsite restaurants, you'll explore one of the most widely used, most important, and most misunderstood ingredients in the modern (and ancient) kitchen. Writer, historian, and food authority Nancy Harmon Jenkins leads, with guest chef Michele Forgione in March, and guests Chef Sara Jenkins and Dario Cecchini, the Tuscan butcher, in April.
