Tuscan Culture & Cuisine: October 2021

Mediterranean Culture of Food & Hospitality

We will begin our journey in the historic Tuscan hilltop town of Volterra, Italy with a food and wine focused course, CUA 246 Tuscan Culture and Cuisine. Here we study and visit producers of pasta/grains, wine, olive oil, cheese, agritourismos, and restaurants.

All producers operate with either biodynamic or organic practices and make interesting case studies for Americans looking to study production. As the majority of the Italian economy is based on tourism, there is much to learn from the area and the SIAF campus will house, feed, and transport us to our daily activities.
