Culinary Travel and Epicurean Adventures

Eating our way through Europe in Cortona

This phrase right here had me hooked: “…offers extraordinary culinary journeys and experiences at the most luxurious hotels and resorts around the world.” Ummm…okay, when do we leave? Seriously, I love culinary travel and exploring new places…especially through food and wine. 

Shortly after moving to Milan, I convinced my mother to come live with us and promised her the adventure of a lifetime. And an adventure it was! We called it “Eating and drinking our way through Europe”. It was the ultimate in culinary travel! We saw seven countries in six short months. Our adventure started with a trip to Tuscany where we stayed in an agriturismo. It’s the best way to have an authentic Italian adventure, staying with a local family, dining with them, partying with them, and seeing their daily way of life first-hand. You can read more about those adventures in previous posts They eat bunnies? and Peas and cornbread in Italy.

I’ll travel anywhere if I’m offered an authentic culinary experience. So I was excited to hear about Rosewood Hotels new culinary program, A Sense of Taste, they describe as curated Epicurean Encounters. I love when hotels are this innovative and create packages and programs to let guests explore their passions. Luxury Travel Magazine recently profiled the program in this article.
