Of Cooking

Salve

Ever since I was a little girl in Italy, I have adored cooking. My curiosity for new techniques and recipes helps me learn new things every day. Sharing food with others and discovering our own culinary secrets is such a special thing, and our capacity to try and appreciate new foods is infinite. Food brings people together, it makes us happy, it does more than just sustain us—it makes our lives richer.

My name is Alessandra, and I’d like to cook with you.

Cooking & Wine Tours

I went on Alessandra’s cooking tour in June and would love to do it again. It would be hard to say what I liked most. Italy is beautiful. The people were so welcoming. And then there’s the food! From the days exploring the villages and sites ,to the nights with her wonderful family it was an experience of a lifetime. If you ever wanted to experience real Italy this is the way to do it!        Laura- Summer 2014

Every year, I make a pilgrimage back to the ancient heart of cuisine. Join me on a culinary tour of Viterbo, Italy, where we’ll enjoy authentically delicious meals and the remarkable history, culture and summer weather of this central Italian getaway. Or, come with me on a guided wine tour of the region and toast to our health. These intimate, small group tours are a yearly treat, so don’t miss out on the flavor and fun.

Testimonials

Both trips were great fun!  Alessandra’s careful  planning  gave us time to improve our culinary skills AND see/experience REAL Italy.  Easy on the budget, too!

I had the pleasure to go to Italy with 2 of my cousins in 2014. We attended the first Wine trip with Alessandra on her tour. I cannot speak highly enough. Once we arrived, everything was taken care of. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy. All the tours were fantastic, the Agriturismo where we stayed was outstanding. The food, wine and views were fabulous. We really felt like family. I plan on going on another one of her tours. I would suggest if you get the opportunity to go, please join Alessandra and her family in Italy, you will not regret it.
