My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

August 22, 2014


Lucca May ’15-Let’s Go!


Before you know it the holidays will have passed us by and in the doldrums of winter we’ll be dreaming of spring. Well, I’m not only only dreaming about spring, but I’m starting to plan a week in Lucca in May.


As for as I’m concerned it’s never too early to start thinking about getting on a plane and landing in Italy. Lucca is like a second home to me and I’d love to take you along.


Our week will focus on the food of the area with day trips to local farms, cooking classes and of course a day in Florence exploring its famous food market and tasting our way through the city.


There will be time for getting to know the treasures of Lucca and once there you’ll know why I’ve fallen for this charming Tuscan town. I guarantee you that you’ll be planning a return trip before the end of our week together.

We’ll cook together, dine in my favorite Lucca restaurants and sample more than a few of the local wines. There will be time for shopping and strolling around town and finding your own favorite spots.

I’ll be posting dates and more details soon but in the mean time send me an e mail if you’re interested and have questions:

    Hello From Breckenridge, Colorado . . . I will follow your trip to Lucca with joy. Our family spent the month of July, 2014, in Lucca, so your current photos and future ones will have me stepping into memory lane. Judy

  6. Judy-a month in Lucca-I am so jealous! Where did you stay? I would love to hear about all your favorites-restaurants, outings, whatever!
