Angelo Prosperi-Porta has a culinary passion. Since 1999 he has been connecting and reconnecting with his roots in Italy. As a son of immigrant parents he feels strong ties to his Italian ancestral lands and is very proud to share this passion and help to introduce others to the joys and surprises he has uncovered over the past two decades. Angelo brings with him a strong culinary history and experience of over thirty-five years, including representing Canada at several International Culinary events, teaching in Culinary Programs in two Canadian Westcoast colleges and is also the author of two successful cookbooks. He enjoys nothing more than expanding his knowledge of the foods of Italy and sharing this with other passionate lovers of Italian food. After leading several successful organized tours in Tuscany based around the historic city of Lucca, Angelo is again ready and eager to lead his next tour. Again in and around the city of Lucca we will be based in a new facility, Villa Selva. A beautiful restored Italian villa perched on the hills above the city from which we will conduct our daily events. Built around a comfortable intimate group of up to ten participants the experience is as hands-on as desired. From cooking classes utilizing the best local ingredients available to wine tasting excursions, visits to harbour cities in search of fresh caught fish and enjoying classic dishes in some excellent local restaurants, this tour promises to be as memorable as all the past tours.
