Full description
Stroll through an open-air market, learn the traditions of an old-fashioned bakery, and savor local cheeses, cured meats, and antipasti in this 3-hour culinary adventure.  Meet your local guide in Piazza Garibaldi and explore an open-air market. Enter a traditional cheese shop and learn about the different cheeses and their production. Try goat cheese and sheep cheese and learn how to differentiate the two before entering an old-fashioned bakery to learn about the grissini (traditional breadsticks).  Take a break in a bistrot where locals go to eat and savor two of the most traditional starters or antipasti. Next, enter a truffle shop run by a family of truffle hunters and taste the salami, cheese, honey, and olive oil enriched with local truffles. Savor tajarin or risotto served with freshly shaved black truffles and a glass of wine.  Taste one last local delicacy in a cozy store that specializes in salami and cured meats or enjoy another typical recipe in a restaurant in the town center. Of course, the tour would not be complete without a dessert of hazelnut pastries and chocolate truffles.
