Abruzzi Italy

Tours and Treks

Flavors of Abruzzo and the Italian Adriatic

An Edible Destinations Premium Series Tour from the Heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea

Learning how to cook Italian food is a secret dream for many. On this cooking holiday you’ll learn the recipes of traditional Italian and Abruzzese cuisine—from homemade pasta and gnocchi to desserts and other delights. These dishes come from the oldest and most authentic recipes handed down from family to family. Special attention is given to territorial and seasonal foods like fresh local vegetables, fish and fruit, but also to the produce you can find in your own market when you get back home. You’ll have the opportunity to visit the traditional fishing huts called trabocco along the coastline. You’ll hear the silence of Old Abruzzi, you’ll get lost among its colors, and you’ll remember its flavors for years to come. It’ll be hard to forget the breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso—the highest mountains of central Italy—from the reserves and the natural parks to the countryside and its medieval villages.
