SILVERSEA CREATES SLOW FOOD PROGRAM

“Slow Food Adventure in Tuscany” is a land option available on 2012 Silversea Mediterranean voyages

Silversea Cruises has created a new "Slow Food Adventure in Tuscany" land option that will debut on three Mediterranean voyages in 2012.
 
In collaboration with Slow Food Italy, the cruise company has designed a three-night program that will highlight the culinary and cultural traditions of Tuscany and introduce participants to local wine producers and products that adhere to the Slow Food philosophy of preserving biodiversity and gastronomic traditions.
 
The program will be conducted with one or more members of Silversea's own culinary team on hand to provide participants with guidance and access to local producers committed to responsible and sustainable food production, as recommended by Slow Food. Participants might visit a dairy farm or stroll through olive groves and vineyards to learn the secrets of traditional food production. Clients will gain a greater understanding of the region's wines as well as the ingredients selected for the dishes served in La Terrazza, Silversea's Italian speciality restaurant.
 
This three-night sojourn, priced from US$3,599 per guest (based on double occupancy), is offered as a pre-cruise option on Silver Wind's April 30 Rome to Venice voyage, and Silver Spirit's Oct. 22 sailing from Rome to Barcelona. It's also available as a post-cruise option on Silver Wind's April 17 Barcelona to Rome voyage.
