|Food that looks good always tastes better!|
We packed a lot into our Artfully Tasteful Tour of Tuscany. The tour was about seeing the region, painting, cooking, relaxing with guitars in the evening, and of course, EATING! Food is a huge part of the Italian culture. Love of food and cooking is what drew many of us to take part in this tour. We have been thrilled with what we’ve been eating and drinking here at San Fedele all week. We’ve also enjoyed what we were able to help prepare in the kitchen.
Our chef at San Fedele, Andreá Anichini is excellent. In addition, he is also a sommelier, but for me, what’s really special about him is his great sense of humor. Bottom line: Andreá is a lot of fun. Sometimes, you might assume that if someone is an artisan in the food and wine world, they might also be a snob. No food snobs here!
|A self described, ” Man from Chianti”, Andreá loves to laugh and tease. Butter is rare in his recipes. He usually cooks with wine, and frequently he puts it in the food!
We knew we could take classes while at San Fedele, but it was such a pleasant surprise when we were informally welcome to drop into the kitchen with Andreá at any time. One of our group was such a frequent visitor to the kitchens that we teased him about being the sous chef!
Next year’s trip is scheduled for the first week of October 2015. Contact me if you might be interested in experiencing Tuscany like this. =)
