About Gastronomic Trekking
Gastronomic Trekking is a cooking experience to discover local gastronomy and wine culture. It's outdoor activities to experience places and its culinary culture. It's a trip to feel with senses among forgotten flavors and tastes. We walk passing through the land, foraging wild herb, flowers and aromatic plants. We prepare our meal in a cooking class learning how to set up traditional and innovative recipes. We end our gastronomic journey together, trying all prepared food in a "lab of taste" where we learn to combine food and drinks correctly. We also focus on different type of wines coming from closest vineyards.
