Tuscan Culture & Cuisine: October 2021

Mediterranean Culture of Food & Hospitality

Discover the core elements of cuisine in an immersive Tuscan experience. We will be centered in Volterra, Italy on a campus built for international exchange and cultural experiences. This historic hilltop town joyfully shares its history, food, and warmth. With a day trip to Florence and wine tasting in Chianti, your Tuscan adventure will provide a great overview of what makes this place so special.

Students will have the opportunity to learn from local producers of cheese, wine, pasta, olive oil, and more. Many of these producers operate on family-owned agritourismos (bed and breakfast + agricultural locale/farm) and we’ll discuss these business designs and how it can benefit agricultural areas with thriving a tourism industry.  Tastings, tours, and a cooking class engage students into the products and what makes them so special around the globe.
