(Courtesy of KOSHEREURO) In response to the increased demand for a kosher culinary experience, join KOSHEREURO in Florence, Italy, a city renowned for its art, culture, food, shopping and “la dolce vita,” from April 16-23. The timing for this program, after Passover, will allow participants to see Florence and the countryside without the crowds. The program will include visits to open-air markets, a producer of olive oil and non-mevushal Chianti wine, and the museum of a famous shoe designer, along with exploration of the countryside. A highlight will be a welcome from Rabbino Capo Amedeo Spagnoletto, the new chief rabbi of Florence, along with the opportunity to meet with the Jewish communities of the region.
Included in the program are five cooking classes, hands-on, in English, taught by Cristina Blasi and Gabriella Mari, owners of the prestigious cooking school in Florence, Scuola di Arte Culinaria “Cordon Bleu,” at their new and expanded facility. They are internationally renowned and fully conversant in kosher cuisine. A certificate will be awarded to all participants.
Lodging will be at a Florentine family-owned hotel, centrally located in the historic district of Florence, with air conditioning, wifi and all modern conveniences. The cost, all inclusive, except airfare, is $3,875 per person, shared room, with $550 as a single room supplement.
