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.
