Maybe you remember when I wrote about this last year here, about my friends Maddine and Joe who spend half the year living on the Lower East Side and the other half in their place in Tuscany. Pretty sweet situation, right? Even though most of us haven’t figured out how to spend half a year in Tuscany, the good news is that Maddine and Joe open up their home every year to 10 lucky folks to explore the food and culture of Tuscany.
For all the information and pricing check out their website.
It takes place in November, which you know will be here before you can blink and enrollment is very limited and usually full up by May.
Imagine this….you spend the day hiking through the rolling hills of Tuscany in search of white truffles (their place is close by to some of the best spots). Once home from your white truffle trek you get to help in making yourselves an amazing meal from the truffles you’ve just dug from the ground.
Hell, the price of that many white truffles in NYC is more than this entire week would cost! I’m really trying to figure out how I can go this year – whose coming?
(Did I mention the wine, cheese and olive oil makers you get to visit? And sample…)
