Finally you’re in Italy, beautiful landscapes, cities full of art and museums, shopping, relaxation and entertainment. After a beautiful day, here you decide to go out to dinner and eat real food of the Italians and not the usual tourist sites.
You’re dressed and ready to go out but once I got the restaurant you realize that it is almost deserted. Why this happens? Simple, in Italy, before dinner it is customary to do a wine tasting and then go to dinner.
In Italy the times are slower, Italians like to enjoy life and the pleasures of the table, not in a rush and want to enjoy the wine and the food slowly.
Here’s what you do for a Perfect Dinner in the Italian Style:
1 ) Before dinner, do a wine tasting at Tenuta Torciano Winery , here you can eat cheese, crackers and sausages along with a fantastic selection of wines such as Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, the Super Tuscan. You will learn how to match each food at the right wine.
2) After the wine tasting you’ve learned the pairings, so once arrived at the restaurant, put the teachings into practice and matches the fish to a Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Red di Montalcino and the Fiorentina steak. Discover the real taste of Italian food and wine.
3) After enjoying great food and fine wine, it is time to learn to cook some typical Italian dish. Participate in a cooking class at Torciano Winery; you can learn how to make lasagna and many other useful things to take with you once back home.
Once back home, you can put into practice all the things you learned during your journey and create a perfect Italian dinner at your house.
You can make a selection of Tuscan wines and invite your friends for a wine tasting, and then cook the lasagna or some other Italian dish. Your friends and family will be pleasantly surprised!
