Who We Are

Mama Margaret Cowan of Vancouver, BC Canada has been traveling to Italy for 43 years,  lived there three years and has enjoyed 41 trips there. Her longest love affair ever! In Italy in 1993 on her first cooking tour as a client, she shared cooking, food and wine with a delightful family in the Chianti hills, felt part of their life and connected with them as friends.  She opened her Italy food travel business in 1995 so she could help food and wine lovers to immerse themselves the same truly Italian, “wow” experiences, to feel like they’re leaving new friends when they say “arrivederci”.

Through her experiences with local people in Italy she’s seen first hand how cooking, food and wine experiences open doors to tasting authentic local life with people who live there. Somehow when you cook, eat, drink and learn about food and wine together, you connect at a heart to heart level and feel part of your new local friends’ lives.

Mama Margaret believes holidays are so important in our lives. They give us memories to treasure forever, deepen our bonds to loved ones we share our travels with and open doors to extraordinary, stimulating, sometimes life changing adventures. She loves making all that happen by custom designing your whole Italy vacation and giving you invaluable advice. She relishes getting to know you by asking you lots of questions and discovering what’s really important to you on your Italy holiday. You save time and stress and travel in Italy smoothly. It all makes her exclaim, “YES!”
