Cooking Vacations Italy

March/April 2005 Issue

If you love authentic Italian food and have sampled the cuisine at every North End restaurant, we’ve got another idea: say ‘arrivederci’ to Boston and travel to Italy for lessons with the masters. Sound like a dream vacation? Lauren Scuncio Birmingham makes it possible with her company Cooking Vacations Italy. Birmingham, a fifth generation Italian and owner of Birmingham Associates, provides an opportunity to experience Italian culture and learn true Italian cooking in it’s place of origin. Cooking Vacations Italy offers trips to Tuscany, Sicily, Campania and Rome, with programs tailored to your preference. Stay in a cozy villa amidst a lemon grove, learning to cook everything from antipasto to biscotti incorporating fresh Amalfi lemons. Or stay in a Tuscan hillside farmhouse, golf during the day and make fresh homemade pasta at night. The experience will leave you breathless and your new skills will impress as much as they entice.
