We organised a trip to Emilia Romagna, this time with 15 adults and 11 kids. We learned how to make tortelli di zucca from an Italian grandmother. The kids got involved in this too and had a great time. We then enjoyed a nice lunch of carpaccio di zucca, tortelli di zucca al ragu bolognese, gnocchi di zucca guanciale, and some desserts.

On another day we learned the whole process of making parmigiano reggiano. My kids for one LOVE parmigiano so they were happy to see the whole process and taste the cheese as we were learning.

We also organized a big archery competition with a professional. All adults and kids got involved and everyone became so competitive. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we had a great day.

We love organizing what we call these 'foodie trips'. We have lots of friends with little children like ours and we want to make sure these trips are fun for both adults and kids. We also want to make sure we are teaching the kids something educational but fun at the same time. We are now in the process of planning our next foodie trip!
