Wine, Olives, and Sheep: The Etruscan Guide to 21st Century Foodways
This week, join The Feast under the Tuscan sun as we chat with award-winning winemaker Charlotte Horton about the enduring culinary traditions of one of Italy’s oldest communities: the Etruscans. From millennia-old grape presses to enduring wine-soaked folk songs, learn how traditional Tuscan cuisine and culture can trace its lineage back 3000 years. We’ll also learn how these ancient foodways may have something to teach our modern food systems. Charlotte’s restored Tuscan castle, the Castello di Potentino, will host the upcoming Terroir Tuscany, a culinary retreat in early November 2018 focused on rediscovering ancient Etruscan food and farming practices as well as the application of these traditional ideas to modern global food systems. From cheese making to olive picking to wine tasting, it will be an opportunity for developing community and conversation with food scholars, journalists, and chefs from all over the world.   Charlotte Horton has been making award-winning wines in Tuscany for over 20 years. She has restored two Castles in Tuscany.  At the second, Castello di Potentino, she has revitalized an abandoned estate, planting new vineyards, bringing olive trees back into production and creating a cultural centre, aka ‘The 21st Century Castle’, where people can stay in a rural family atmosphere.  She has been running food and wine pop-up events in Italy, Canada, New York, London, Ireland and France since 2010. Find out more about Terroir Tuscany: https://terroirtalk.org/tuscanyGet tickets for the Culinary Retreat: https://potentino.com/index.php/courses-events/courses-events-programme/terroir-tuscany-2018Follow Terroir: https://www.instagram.com/terroirhospitality/Learn more about the Castello di Potentino: https://www.potentino.com/ Learn more about your ad choices.
