Harvest to PLate weekend workshop
Fireflies & Figs, Abruzzo, Italy
3 Days Retreat - 13th to 15th October 2023
Accommodation - Double room in Olive Mill Villa
October is a beautiful month to visit Abruzzo, not only for the warm temperature and beautiful sunsets over the mountains, but it is a busy time for harvest. This region has many green wide open spaces and the land is rich and fertile producing an abundance of ingredients and a perfect backdrop for a foodie break away.
Fern has created a special retreat to immerse you into harvest time. A time in Italy when sustainability is at the forefront of the mind. Every household is busy picking the last of the vegetables, and packing, storing, pickling them up ready to be used over winter. Fern has a small vegetable garden at fireflies and figs and will demonstrate some of the fantastic rituals of how to make food go a long way. The Italians are great experts at storing their much loved vegetables, and Fern will give you key tips and tricks to help you do the same. She will also introduce you to local experts in their food and wine and take you on a small journey through the valley of Caprafico where olive trees and vines are a plenty.
