We’ve already sold out our October week of AmorOlio at Villa Campestri. But we’re making another week in November and there are still places available. So hurry to book for this gastronomic and emotional travel experience you’ll not soon forget!Those who’ve participated in past weeks of AmorOlio – the kitchen that speaks Tuscan – know well that it’s an unforgettable experience: food prepared by the participants under the guidance of starred grand chefs, and then eaten on the large terrace of the villa surrounded by the great park and the rich green hills beyond. They well remember the taste of the extra-virgin olive oil whose secrets are shared by agronomist-hostess Gemma Pasquali, along with unforgettable trips to artisan food workshops in nearby Vicchio.
We’ve already described the AmorOlio week of this past spring, and posted photos on our Facebook page. We invite you to read about it all, and to reserve for the last places on our November list. We’ve sold out the October week of AmorOlio, and have decided to add another week in November.
In November’s AmorOlio, we’ll have as our guest the American Chef Anita for the seven days (and six nights) of the event. Villa Campestri is the only actual olive oil resort in the world, and you’ll be surrounded by the trees that produce it, and discover our traditional/modern olive press. In November, depending on the maturity of the olives, you might have the additional pleasure of watching the new fresh oil being pressed. It’s a moment not to miss.
. Three tastings of different oils, accompanied by lectures on the defects and perfections of each by our knowledgeable agronomist (and hostess) Gemma Pasquali;
