Pizza, Bruschetta & Vino....OH MY!

Pizza, Bruschetta & Vino ... OH MY!

On October 27th, I hosted an event at Piatti's Italian restaurant which is located in Cherry Creek, Colorado. It was an intimate affair hosted by Chicks That Trip. The event was held in order to showcase some culinary and wine tours of Italy. While it was not a large gathering, we sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed titillating conversation, food and of course, some vino.

Sal was the server in our area, and he was engaging, personable and a real gentleman. We were never without anything we needed, and he set-up our spread of food just like a pro! There was brilliant bruschetta, aromatic roasted vegetables, and pizza's with pizzaz as well as other delicious bites to eat.

One of the tours being promoted is an absolutely divine culinary experience in Tuscany, Italy. The property is on thirty (30) acres with five (5) acres of Truffle farming; a 12 ensuite Villa, and more than enough room to roam. There are daily cooking classes set-up at lunchtime; however, there is plenty of cushion in the itinerary to get out and explore Tuscany and the surrounding countryside, which, incidentally, is only a short hours drive to Florence. The food prepared during the classes is seasonal; therefore, all of the classes are based on the time of year so that all the dishes are fresh, current, and impart Tuscany's regional fare. And if, per chance, you are traveling with someone who just wants to partake of the food, but not actually prepare it - they are free to join as a companion! They get all the benefits of the food, without all of the work...hmmmm.

As we start pushing our way into the holiday season, it's never to soon to start thinking about travels for next year. Wherever your travels may take you during the holiday season and in to the next year, be sure to take a step back, relax and enjoy yourself.

Per la tua salute!
