Have you always wanted to learn about Italian cuisine?
If so, late February and early March 2014 are a fine time to visit Coastal Georgia. During those periods, Sea Island, GA real estate owners will have an opportunity to learn Italian cooking techniques from a visiting culinary professional. Here are the bite-size details:
Sheâ€™s an Italy based tour operator, AIS Certified wine sommelier, Stile Mediterraneo Cooking School founder and active member of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil Movement. Sheâ€™ll be on Sea Island February 28th and March 1st of this year.
On the 28th, in the early afternoon, Rascazzo will be teaching an authentic Italian cooking class at The Cloisterâ€™s Colonial Lounge. An olive oil tasting session and tasty lunch are scheduled to be a part of the event. The olive oil tasting session should be particularly interesting given Rascazzoâ€™s background.
If you canâ€™t make it to the class in February, on the 1st Rascazzo will be participating in a special charity dinner event at The Cloisterâ€™s Lodge Terrace Room. So you could opt to attend that instead. The dinner will feature Italian wines, mouth-watering cuisine and a chance to mingle with like minded foodies. The charity expected to benefit from the event is Glynn Countyâ€™s beloved STAR Foundation.
Canâ€™t make it to either spring event? Donâ€™t give up hope. There is a lovely Italian restaurant on Sea Island thatâ€™s typically open year round. Itâ€™s called Tavola and is generally open for dinner Thursday through Tuesday, year round.
Furthermore, there is another Italian restaurant on nearby St. Simons Island. Known as Tramici, its chef offers Italian cooking classes and dining opportunities throughout the year. They also use Georgia grown ingredients like Georgia Olive Farmsâ€™ oils. The farm is based in Lanier County, which is situated roughly two hours away from Glynn County.
