Daily Tour

In Italy, meals are the center of life with everyone gathered together around a table, tempted by all the aromas of the day’s labor of love – cooking. This deeply valued tradition inspired a local cook to open her home; she welcomes to her villa those who want to learn the secrets of Parma recipes. You’re invited to share an aperitif, learn to cook, and partake in the fruits of your labor by sharing a meal and a glass of wine with your new friends.
