Region: 

The Jasmine Coast is a region of Calabria which runs along the Ionian Sea between the cities of Riace and Locri and gets its name from the fragrant Jasmine plant that grows wild in the area. This area is rustic and untouched and is famous for its surrounding views of the mountains and the sea. If you are looking for an authentic location in Italy where time stands still then look no further. 

Cuisine:

The culinary traditions of Calabria are steeped in centuries of history. Many of the recipes and ingredients used in the cuisine have been brought over from the nations that have invaded and conquered Calabria since the beginning of history. The Greeks, Romans, Byzantine, Saracens, Normans and Arab just to name a few. All these cultures have gifted Calabria with their unique ingredients and recipes, and what remains today is an eclectic blend of flavours influenced by these cultures. Fresh pasta made by hand, natural breads, sun ripened fruits and freshly picked vegetables, meat from farm raised animals, fresh cheese, organic olive oils and local wines from ancient soil, here you will experience food pleasure in its finest form.

Accommodations:

You will be staying at a beautiful farmhouse situated only 10 km from the mountains and 10 km from the sea. Surrounded by nature amongst the olive groves and citrus trees you will find yourself in an oasis of peace.

This organic farm specialises in developing natural olive oil, wine, olives, bread and products made from citrus fruits, 100% derived from organic farming, following traditional processing methods.  

The rooms are large and bright, each with its own private bathroom, air conditioning and free wi-fi. There is also a relaxation room on the property with books and TV as well as an outdoor swimming pool with a spectacular mountain view.

Our Inspiration:

Gone are the days when people used to spend an entire morning preparing their meals. In our fast paced society we've lost the connection we once had with food. Our meals are now easily available, pre-packaged and ready to eat. Some people are so busy that they rarely have time to sit and enjoy a home cooked meal with their families. 

We want to help you connect with food and nature and Calabria is the place to do this. This culinary experience has been inspired by the Slow Food Philosophy which believes in bringing consumers back to the source of where food comes from. Fortunately Slow Food is a way of life in Calabria, it's a place where people put love and passion into their meals and have a deep connection with food and nature. A place where ancient traditions and recipes have been passed down and still exist today.

If you are passionate about food, have a desire to reconnect with nature and want to learn how to recreate delicious italian meals then this experience is for you.  For more information or to reserve your place please email slowfood@discovercalabria.it
