Join us in late September 2019 on a culinary tour of Italy's beautiful Piedmont region. We'll learn to make authentic Italian dishes with seasonal ingredients, drink luscious wines, visit a Michelin star restaurant, hunt for truffles in the woods, taste fresh & aged cheeses, explore Milan and Turin and so much more!

Heidi, the owner of Forktown and long-time tour leader in Italy, created an exclusive culinary itinerary with Meet Piemonte, a small-group tour company specializing in the Piedmont region. Heidi will accompany the group as the tour leader and one of her dearest friends & long-time colleagues -- founder of Meet Piemonte, Marco Scaglione -- will be the Italian tour guide.  Together we have taken groups all over Italy and can't wait to share some of our favorite places with you!
