Exactly what I was hoping! We arent shoppers, just want to soak up the atmosphere and see the roman sites!

Jamikins,
I want to ask about the cooking school /b&b you were part of in Bologna.Do you share your email?I would give mine.......or would you say more about your B& B resources ??The idea of combining a B&B with group cooking sounds divine and inspired. Hope you find this message!!

Hi Carolina,

I am happy to share my info - the cooking school was actually in Le Marche at a farm house, and was the highlight of our trip last year. The website is http://www.latavolamarche.com/html/

Hubby wrote a trip report and I posted my pics - will find the link and post it here...

Hi Jamikins,
Thank you for the 'tavola marche' link..I have emailed them for details.May I ask which resources you use in finding the B&Bs you use......and ALSO, if there are sites to go to for a listing of cooking classes ???For us foodies,this would be a great way to spend a few days on vacation !! In the past,most have been prohibitively expensive,and very formal.Nice to know there are other options....but unclear as to where they are.Any hints would be so appreciated !!We were in
le Marche last April,and fell in love with Ascoli and all those tiny Sibiline Mountain towns we visited,which I dubbed 'Proscuitto Heaven'.The main square in Ascoli,either in the quiet of morning or for the evening"passiagata",is a memory/image I treasure.We are just beginning to plan our 3 weeks in our beloved Italy,and cooking classes may well be a part of the adventure.I so appreciate further information in regard to your sources for B&Bs.....and cooking classes.

Hello again!

To be honest I get them from all kinds of sources...here, trip advisor and good old google. I can't remember how I found tavola marche, but be sure to tell Ashley where you heard about them (jamie and Scott say hi!).

We loved the area around the b&b, be sure to check out their blog and also visit the small towns around them. Piobbico is great for an afternoon gelato with the locals! We will be there at the beginning of July...maybe our paths will cross?
