As the year 2018 peeks around the corner, I have a wonderful announcement to make: This coming Spring, David and I will be bringing our love of Mediterranean food to one of the places where it was born:
It’s an absolute dream trip, all planned out by Oldways, Health Through Heritage, renowned for its fabulous culinary trips around the world, for the last 15 years (Click here to check some of the amazing trips from the prior years: WOW!!)
Great perk for registered dietitians: you are eligible for an estimated 17 CPE credits!
Here is our Itinerary
We arrive in Palermo on Sunday, April 8th, where David will offer his opening presentation and we’ll begin our trip with an exquisite wine tasting and welcome dinner, featuring Cuisinicity recipes, under the stars.
We’ll spend four nights in Palermo and three in Siracusa (Ortigia), with lots of adventure in between. In Palermo, we’ll visit spectacular food markets and museums, along with a longer guided tour of the Monreale Cathedral and its magniﬁcent mosaics. We’ll have a day at Anna Tasca Lanza’s legendary cooking school/winery/restaurant/hotel Regaleali (WOW!! Click here for more information on this AMAZING place!) and another day at Agrigento, a large archaeological site with well-preserved Greek temples. We’ll ﬁnish our week in and around Ortigia, a small island which is the historical center of the city of Siracusa, well known for its stunning Greek amphitheater built in the 5th century BC.
…and of course, throughout our trip, we will play together with hands-on cooking classes, where you will get to know all my little tricks and learn first-hand the reasoning behind my recipes guided by David’s expertise in nutrition and preventive medicine. He is absolutely fascinating (and I am not just saying that because he is my husband)!! So, come join us in April and let’s share a week of cultural, culinary delight together on this one-of-a-kind Sicilian Culinary Tour.

with all my love and wishes for good health, peace and joy in the new year,
