Description

Mark your calendar’s friends- a nourishing and refreshing retreat you’ll be craving come Fall! Join me (and special guests!) on a 7-day culinary and wellness tour of Italy. Discover the vibrant plant-based wonders of Rome and Tuscany September 28-October 5.

Nourish your body through cooking classes and workshops. Nourish your spirit through guided tours of the Italian countryside, meditation and daily yoga practices.

This journey starts with in Rome, where we will visit the city’s amazing make plant-based cheese and raw chocolate shops.  We will then travel up the coast to Tuscany to settle in our villa, an organic wine farm set in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. Here we will be surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams with spectacular views and untouched landscapes.  

Our days will be spent learning abut wild edible and medicinal herbs, learning how to make sourdough pizza, plant-based cheeses, hand-rolled pasta and chocolates all while utilizing local ingredients from right outside our door. There will be excursions to ancient towns, hot springs, and more.

This is the FIRST time this retreat will be offered in the Fall. On our farm it will be in time to harvest grapes, olive to make olive oil, and hopefully be in their Porcini mushroom season. It is a bountiful time to be in Italy!
