Dinner in Orvieto with Chef Lorenzo (LIMITED SPOTS!) April 24th
A short introductory video will illustrate the main sights of Orvieto, including the magnificent Duomo, its piazzas, alleyways and medieval and Renaissance feel. Then Chef Lorenzo, a true local with international experience, will show us how to prepare two dishes using recipes from the local tradition and chat about the ingredients, culture, folklore and much more as you prepare the dishes alongside him in your kitchen.
FUN FACT#1: Orvieto is like a Swiss cheese. Full of holes, tunnels and wells in its underground. They were excavated since Etruscan times, around seven centuries BCE. Archaeologists have counted 1200. So far…
FUN FACT#2: Spelt (Farro) is one of the oldest grains in the world, cultivated since 5000 BCE. In Orvieto and Umbria, it is the base for many hearty soups and was one of the main food staples even in Etruscan and Roman times.
