Italian Expressions offers you the opportunity to appreciate authentic, regional food, to learn to cook in Italy and to savour the very best Italian wines. All holidays are for individuals and are tailor-made according to your tastes and requirements. We do also have some cookery breaks for 2-6 people and wine tours for small groups of up to 14 people, accompanied by a wine expert.
Our food and wine holidays allow you to sample outstanding local produce, taste regional wines and learn to recreate typical Italian dishes with a local chef. Stay in luxury hotels with their own vineyards and learn from specialists who are passionate about the art of wine-making, and dine in fantastic restaurants which serve only the best local produce. Choose between stunning destinations such as Tuscany, the Veneto region and Lombardy, each of which has plenty of gastronomic delights to attract visitors. Visit famous wine regions such as Chianti Classico, Valpolicella and Franciacorta to learn more about the different varieties of grape and the superb wines which are produced. Certain foodie things always spring to mind when you think of Italy– truffles, olive oils, Parma ham, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. The world’s most expensive cooking ingredient – the delicate truffle – grows in abundance in Italy, so why not enjoy a truffle hunting holiday in Piemonte. And, for the many variations of olive oil – from the rich and peppery to the smooth and silky – a visit to one of Italy’s distinctive olive oil producing regions will show you how to really taste the difference. We can offer you a holiday where you can taste olive oil, local wine and have a cookery lesson in Umbria.Italy's famous regional cuisine is created using traditions and skills that have been passed down lovingly through the ages. If you are looking for a holiday where the focus is on learning these techniques as you cook a range of regional dishes with renowned chefs, take a look at our cookery holidays that are based at authentic, regional hotels in Tuscany, Umbria and Sicily. There are 4 night breaks that can be extended if required.
