Cucina della Terra is a premier cooking vacation program in Italy combining hands on cooking classes and all inclusive tours run by professionals.
Growing up in Queens, New York, it was easy for Gerri to fall in love with food. Her Italian-born grandfather owned a fine food store, so her family regularly feasted on such farm-to-table foodstuffs as local squab and fresh produce from Long Island. Yet, despite this unusual access to the region’s freshest flavors, Gerri’s original career plans bent towards academia instead of the kitchen. Since 2008, Gerri has split her time between teaching Italian cooking and professional baking at the award-winning Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan and developing immersive culinary tours.
Along with Gerri, Jack will guide you during this holiday.

"Wow, Great Tuscan Cooking School and Cultural Experience"
The food, recipes, field trips (for truffle hunting, olive harvest, olive milling, cheese tasting, vineyard tour and wine tasting, Orvieto, Perugia and Montepulciano), the fun with the other students (everyone was so much fun and interesting). I just was so surprised by the non stop fun!
