Southern Visions Travel Winter Giro 2012
Starting the first week of January, Southern Visions Travel, based in Puglia, Italy will be bringing a taste of Puglia to the United States. The young, dynamic team of Italians and Americans with substantial experience in their fields, will showcase their latest project, a newly opened culinary school, La Cucina at Gelso Bianco. The company will present a series of Pugliese dinners, tastings and private cooking classes throughout New York, Boston, DC, Chicago and the Bay Area. The tour begins in New York City on January 10th with a dinner event at Porsena with Chef Sara Jenkins.
Masseria Gelso Bianco opened its doors in June 2011. This fabulously renovated traditional farmhouse in Puglia is not only a fine place to stay in south Italy, but also the site of a professional culinary school called La Cucina at Gelso Bianco.
The school runs week-long culinary programs with on-site chef, Laura Giordano, and is host to many guest chefs from North America.
Gelso Bianco lies in the countryside near the UNESCO World Heritage site Alberobello and includes four unique bedrooms with private bathrooms, a pool, eleven trulli cone roofs, gardens and an old stable, which is now the state of the art kitchen.
The masseria combines the typical old style of life of the region with the best of modern design.
The popular self guided cycling holidays and bike tours offered by Southern Visions Active and Cultural Vacations are the perfect way to travel and discover Italy at your own pace and in private.
The company has over 100 new, lightweight, high performing bicycles to choose from, including 2 tandems, to ensure your trip is as leisurely or energetic as you prefer.
