Where will you go, and what will you eat?
The tour starts at a pastry shop, where you will sample Italian cream rolls. You need not miss out on these delicious treats once you return home, as the guide will be happy to give you the recipe so that you can make them yourself.
At your next stop, you will learn about how two different Italian cold cuts are made, as well as taste them for yourself. You will also try one of Milan’s signature dishes, Risotto alla Milanese.
You will also visit Antico Pastificio Moscova to enjoy two kinds of meatballs and melanzane alla parmigiana, a delicious Italian dish of layered aubergine with cheese and tomato sauce.
Aperitivo is a traditional Northern Italian tradition, and at the next stop, you can enjoy cheese, prosciutto and olives with wine and grappa.
Italian ice cream is well-known the world over, so it is no surprise that this tour concludes with the history of gelato.
Children and vegetarians
The tour welcomes children, who can attend at half the adult price. If you are a vegetarian, make sure that you tell the tour organiser and they will ensure that you can still enjoy this exploration of Italian cuisine.
