You’ll be greeted with a celebratory glass of Prosecco before a lunch that includes a selection of crostini; pasta e fagioli with farro; cod with olives, capers, tomatoes and polenta; roasted pork loin; and a scrumptious lemon pine nut tart for dessert. Those peasants really know how to cook and eat!
