We started our trip with the Charming city of Venice ,with the Excitement and buzz of the ‘Biennale, and the film festival’. It began on a wellness note with a talk on ‘Mio balance’ by Dr. Giovanni. This culinary trip began with the art of learning to make the best ‘bellinis’ at Hotel ‘Ciprianni’ and organic salads at the ‘Carlton’ hotel on the grand canal.A group of us visited the Rialto food market to see, smell and savour the local flavours whilst the others went on a cultural and historical walk through Venice. Our next destination was the gastro heart of Tuscany, where we stayed at the hillside village ‘ll Borro’now a ‘Relais n chateaux’ property owned by the ferragamo family, truly magical where time seemed to stand still. Our next agenda being ‘Truffle hunting’ with the dogs was surely an unforgettable experience ! The well renowned silver designer ‘Giovanni Raspini’ took us through his factory giving us a first hand experience of his stunning creations . We were proudly invited by The ‘Mayor of Arrezzo’ on a official visit to the ‘Town Hall’. Dinner was laid out under the stars at the most enticing ‘Cappana de Sole’. Our final day was spent amongst Cypress trees,vineyards and olive groves at the ‘ll falconiere’ in the pretty town of Cortona. Here we mastered the art of pasta-making with Michelin chef ‘Silvia barrachi’. Our last and final evening was hosted at the ‘Osteria terrace’ by Ferragamo’s granddaughter, Ms ‘Vittoria ferragamo’at ‘Il borro’. Truly a week of unforgettable and unbelievable experiences!
