Abruzzo Cooking Vacations
Bask in the beauty of unspoiled, authentic Abruzzo during your Italian cooking vacation. Located due east of Rome, Abruzzo is a magical land where medieval villages perched on hilltops and nestled in valleys give way to miles of seaside; where natural wonders abound in vast protected parklands full of lush forests and majestic mountains; where cured meats, zesty sheep's milk cheese, and homemade pastas pair with fresh seasonal produce in a regional cuisine that is both ruggedly simple and full of natural flavors. Come enjoy cooking courses that take advantage of Abruzzo's natural landscape, where the coast provides access to wonderful fresh seafood, its mountains are home to succulent meats, and its terrain produces the well-known Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wine.
