Come Cruise the Mediterranean with Me

Ciao Friends, Food Fans and Family!

I'm excited to have teamed up with premier tour operator Gohagan & Company once again!

I'll be guest speaker and host for their exclusive “C'est Bon! Culinary Traditions” program this October 24 to November 1, 2010: Crossroads of the Classical Mediterranean, a four-country cruise aboard the specially-chartered, deluxe M.S. Le Boreal. Click HERE for an electronic brochure.

We'll be sailing from Venice, Italy, along the fabled Dalmation coast to Split and Dubrovnik, Croatia; then cruising to Taormina, Sicily; Naples, Italy; Bonifacio, Corsica; and concluding in Nice, France.

Here are some pictures to entice you. First, Venice, below:

Taormina in Sicily

And below is Naples, Italy:

Onboard, I'll be giving lectures and specially-arranged tastings, and providing commentary while the ship's French master chef demonstrates a few fabulous recipes. I'll also be hosting the exclusive Gohagan & Company “C'est Bon! Culinary Traditions” excursions, which have been carefully planned to include a private visit to an historic Sicilian pastry kitchen with a special holiday pastry demonstration and samplings; a hands-on opportunity to make traditional Croatian peka followed by a family-hosted lunch featuring grappa from their vineyard; and learning the art of making pizza from an authentic "pizzeria" cooking school chef in, where else--Naples, home of the original pizza!
