On Sara Jenkins’ Italy Trip, Expect Unfettered Pasta Consumption


Last week, we learned that Sara Jenkins will be leading a trip to Italy later this year. She’s since provided us with a few more details.

The trip, which will take place in July, comprises stops and stays in Naples, Rome, Montepulciano, and Bologna. Each leg will feature some aspect of pasta education, be it a visit to a family-run pasta-making company or a class taught by local experts.

There will also, thankfully, be copious pasta consumption: tortelloni, tagliatelle, pastaciutta, cannelloni, pici, pappardelle, and malloreddus are but a few of the varieties that Jenkins and the trip’s co-organizer, Pamela Sheldon Jones, expect to ply their participants with.
