BOURNJOIRNO from Lucca, Italy!
So I failed to mention this in an earlier post, but I am on a two week culinary trip to the Tuscany region of Italy, including Lucca where I am currently staying at Villa Principessa. The scenery alone would be enough to make anyone jealous, but I am mostly going to focus on my culinary excursions.
Today was our first day, and after having a chance to unpack, shower, change and nap, we headed over to the culinary school where we'll be doing our lessons. We had a five course dinner with prosecco, white and red wines.
*For more information about the perfect olive oil, visit the Olive Tap in Long Grove or Downers Grove, IL, where sometimes they do olive oil tastings.
All in all, a good first day. It's only the first day and I'm already starting to wonder if it's possible to have a bad day in Italy. I have two weeks left to enjoy, and honestly, I'm not worried one bit.
