Who We Are
We help busy food and wine lovers experience Italy through exquisite cooking and wine tours in seven Italian regions. You are welcomed into locals’ homes, wine cellars, farms, restaurant kitchens, and get a truly unique, insider experience.
Thanks to our 17 years’ experience and connections, through food and wine you make heart to heart connections with Italian people and often leave as friends. We create our itineraries with the mission that Italy will run through you and you’ll feel you’re Italian during your stay.
As Italy travel experts, we also plan your whole Italy vacation before and after your cooking tour, so you avoid stress and save time before your trip and just show up in Italy and enjoy yourselves. One stop shopping!
Mama Margaret has been traveling to Italy for 40 years and lived there three years. Her longest love affair ever! In Italy in 1993 on her first cooking tour, she shared cooking, food and wine with a Tuscan family, felt part of their life and connected with them as friends. Ever since, she’s been helping food and wine lovers to enjoy the same truly Italian, “wow” experiences.
We offer set Italian cooking and wine tour itineraries in Piedmont, the Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Sorrento/Amalfi Coast, Puglia and Sicily.
We also custom design cooking and wine tours so you experience what you’ve always dreamed of in Italy.
Mama Margaret & Friends Cooking Adventures In Italy started in 1995 and is a licensed tour operator with the province of B.C. in Canada (license 32155).
