In 2012 the first eathquake to hit the area in 500 years destroyed the dairy production area and millions of euros worth of cheese within a 5 minute time period. It took 10 months to rebuild and start producing cheese again resulting in major economic loss for the area.

Wonderful way to taste and understand traditional regional dishes, learning background and stories of how dishes evolved. A fun suprise, another member of the tour was a teacher from L.A., it was great , we talked about the similarities and differences teaching in different parts of USA, and our tour guide talked about education in Venice.
First stop on this culinary journey is Venice. Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. Venice consists of 117 bodies of land connected by more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals. I will be observing ways in which food brings together people, shapes a country, culture and this region.
