Travel to Europe with Zingerman’s!

We’re going to Spain and Tuscany in 2014!food-tour-icon

Zingerman’s Food Tours is about connecting with people and places through the food. We take a small group, settle in, and explore a cuisine and culture at a reasonable, balanced pace. We cook, we eat, we talk with locals, and we learn directly from the artisanal food producers about what they do. The relationships with people in the areas we visit, and within each group as we spend time together, are so rewarding and are a key part of what makes each tour special.

September 8-18 and September 20-30, 2014.

We’ve been longing to create another Zingerman’s Food Tour to Spain, and are excited to be offering this new tour! The area southwest of Madrid, sometimes called the pantry of Spain, has amazing artisanal food and wine, and we will savor it to the fullest. We’ll learn directly from the producers about their fantastic olive oils, cheeses, wines, chocolates, pimenton, and more. And of course, we’ll do full honors to the king of cured pork – jamón Ibérico de bellota, created only in this region from the famed black-footed pigs who dine on the acorns (bellota) that fall from the plentiful Spanish oak trees. We’ll enjoy the beauty of the region and taste our way through some of the best food Spain has to offer.

October 4-13, 2014 (We’ve added an additional day to the 2014 tour!)
Come visit Tuscany and Emilia Romagna the Zingerman’s way. We’ll go behind the scenes and visit traditional small producers of some of the region’s finest foods – from the massive wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano, to the beautiful, small bottles of real balsamic vinegar, from Chianti Classico wines and artisanal olive oil to the melt-in-your-mouth prosciutto crudo. And we’ll roll up our sleeves and enjoy Tuscan cooking lessons in a 15th century villa in the rolling hills outside of Florence. Together with Peggy Markel, long-time fellow culinary adventurer and food guide, we will experience the wonderful food, culture, and landscape of Tuscany.
