A Taste of Italy: Food Photography and pasta-making in Veneto, Sommacampagna, martedì, 08. ottobre 2019

Join us, food photographers Valeria Bismar (valeriabismar.com) and Ariel Tarr (arieltarr.com) on our upcoming workshop in Italy in the gorgeous province of Verona. 
We’re hosting a 5 days/4 nights retreat from October 8-12th, 2019 at a villa in the townof Sommacampagna. We’ll be joined by two chefs, Sabrina and Francesco, trained at the renowned Boscolo Etoile Academy. We’re very excited to spend 5 fun-filled days of learning all about food and lifestyle photography and of course, eating the most amazing local cuisine. Our chefs will prepare dishes from all over Italy, thus providing a taste of Italy, from north to south.
Discover the beautiful and diverse Veneto region with its vineyards, picturesque towns on Lake Garda, the rich Romanesque and Gothic architecture of Verona all while honing one’s photography skills. Being part of a small group allows for lots of personalized attention and a supportive and intimate setting. 
We’ll have chance to explore wineries of the Bardolino and Custoza region, learn about winemaking, photograph local dishes and ingredients sourced from local farmer’s markets. All meals will be prepared by our two chefs and shared together at our villa, except when we’re out exploring the region and enjoying the ambiance of local osterias. 
We’ll have a fresh pasta workshop where everyone will prepare two types of fresh pasta as well as photograph the process and finished plate. On our first evening at the villa, Sabrina and Francesco will demonstate how to make foccacia and pizza. Everyone will get hands-on experience with the expert guidance of our chefs.
Of course, a trip to the area isn’t complete without a visit to nearby Verona with its medieval old town known for Juliet’s balcony of Shakespeare’s "Romeo and Juliet." We’ll enjoy a foodie walking tour of Verona where we’ll learn not only about history but also sample Marocchino (a coffee drink that consists of a shot of espresso, thick hot cocoa and milk froth), Amarone wine and gelato. 
A fun day-trip to visit a local olive oil producer in the picturesque Lago di Garda region will provide many photo opportunities. We’ll explore shooting at different times of day, such as photographing the gorgeous resort town of Sirmione on Lake Garda at magic hour. 
We’ll be staying in a peaceful area in Sommacampagna, 20 minutes from Verona.The Villa dates from the 1700s and has been restored, maintaining the characteristics that characterize old manor villas. In the middle of the Custoza vineyards, its sprawling 1000 square meter garden is the perfect spot to rest your body and soul. Each room boasts views of the garden or mountains.
