The inspiration

Gone are the days when people used to spend an entire morning preparing their meals. In today’s fast paced society, people have lost the connection they once had with food. The meals are now easily available, pre-packaged, and ready to eat. Some people are so busy that they rarely have time to sit and enjoy a home cooked meal with their families.

Discover Calabria wants to help you connect with food and nature and Calabria is the place to do this. This culinary experience has been inspired by the slow food philosophy which believes in bringing consumers back to the source of where food comes from.

Fortunately, slow food is a way of life in Calabria. It's a place where people put love and passion into their meals and have a deep connection with food and nature - a place where ancient traditions and recipes have been passed down and still exist today.

This is an exclusive experience and will sell out fast. So, book your spot today!

This retreat will be held near the Jasmine Coast, a region of Calabria which runs along the Ionian Sea between the cities of Riace and Locri and gets its name from the fragrant jasmine plant that grows wild in the area. This area is rustic and untouched and is famous for its surrounding views of the mountains and the sea. If you are looking for an authentic location in Italy where time stands still then look no further.

The culinary traditions of Calabria are steeped in centuries of history. Many of the recipes and ingredients used in the cuisine have been brought over from the nations that have invaded and conquered Calabria since the beginning of history. The Greeks, Romans, Byzantine, Saracens, Normans, Arab, Swabian, Aragonese, Spanish, Austrian, Bourbon, and French. All these cultures have gifted Calabria with their unique ingredients and recipes, and what remains today is an eclectic blend of flavors influenced by these cultures.

Fresh pasta made by hand, natural breads, sun ripened fruits, and freshly picked vegetables, meat from farm raised animals, fresh cheese, organic olive oils, and local wines from ancient soil - here you will experience food pleasure in its finest form.
