MaryEllen Grimes, RD “Everything was healthy and delicious” Puglia 2019 Culinary Tour

This was an amazing culinary and cultural experience. Layne and Arriverderci Travel were very knowledgeable and provided an understanding not only about the food but also the history, culture and customs of southern Italy.

The culinary experiences and cultural activities were great.  I learned things that I am sure I would not have learned on another tour.

Everything was healthy and delicious and has inspired me to make more changes at home. I made pasta as soon as I got home!  Being able to make pasta and attend the cooking class makes learning more meaningful – great experience!

I enjoyed learning about the foods of this region, and the history and culture of the people. Learning about ancient grains was new for me. Of course making pasta and foccacia was great.  I used to make my own pasta years ago and I am glad that I am returing back to it.  Just learning about the Italian culture was very important to me- learning to slow down and enjoy things instead of rushing and eating which is what Americans do.

I would definitely consider another WorldRD tour. How about Spain?  But I would go anywhere.”
