This is the third Foodie Adventure the hubby and I have done with Chef Michael Salmon and his wife Mary Jo. The first was in Italy, the second in France’s Loire Valley and now Catalonia in Spain.
So, what is a Foodie Adventure? It is partly touring points of interest in whatever the area, but mostly it is about food and sharing the experience with a group (14-18) of fun and interesting people. And, nobody is better at orchestrating than Chef Michael and Mary Jo!
We visit wineries, organic farms, cheese makers and see firsthand the processes involved in making and growing. I’ve never before been to an organic pig farm, but I can no longer say that after this adventure. These well fed piggies are not too far away from going to the slaughterhouse to become all natural sausages.
We may not be as good as Chef Michael at plating, but with practice we get better!
When all is done we have a multi course meal that is a gourmet’s delight and far more than any of us should eat,
but you can bet there’s always room for dessert!
Yes, I will be sharing some fabulous recipes later so stay tuned.
i so enjoy your visit and the comments you leave behind
