Read more about this course

The Courses offered by the Accademia Italiana di Cucina Pandolfini are a practical approach to learn Regional Italian Cuisine. The Master expands and deepens the knowledge of Traditional Italian food and how it relates to regions and culture through a virtual Gastronomical Trip.

Then add in the thousands of years of invaders or the adoption of returning explorers' culinary discoveries and you've got an exotic blend of culture, tradition, and cuisine.... [-]
