When my husband & I were planning our trip to Tuscany, we were hoping we could incorporate a food tour into our schedule...and we were so glad that there was availability for us in this particular tour! We had a very full day, starting early at a farm to learn about how parmigiano reggiano is made (literally, they walk you through the process & you get to see all the steps along the way), as well as enjoying an amazing breakfast spread. From there, you travel to a balsamic vinegar "factory" where you learn all about the heritage and love that goes into making real aged balsamic vinegar. Next is a prosciutto "factory," with all the different ages of prosciutto on site, and a fantastic tasting (literally so much to sample...I've never eaten so much prosciutto in my life). Last, you go to a fabulous restaurant in the countryside, and just the views alone are amazing, never mind the lunch. I won't spoil it, but this will be a meal you will always remember.
Thank you, Alessandro, for your amazing knowledge and hosting skills, and for sharing this slice of heaven with some very grateful Americans.
