I Want You to Know: Barga

I want you to know wonderful it feels to drive the back road up to Barga. Take a ride behind this Fiat500 on your way to breakfast at the best little pastry shop ever! Scroll down for a taste -

 

 

Meet me in Tuscany this summer for a food tour with Aurelio Barattini. On one of our days together, we'll make our way up the same road on our way to Barga Vecchia. We'll explore the inner castle and the dining scene, get to know some of the folks who live there. We'll and take time to explore the Duomo di Barga and gaze over the Serchio valley from the top of the world.

Before we leave we'll meet Paolo Lucchesi. He'll tell us the story of his family's gelateria in Barga, his award-winning pasticceria, and how the history of the territory is woven into the quality of his work.

Try to get a sense for the best cappuccino you've ever had... The photo just doesn't convey the frothy perfection. So, come and meet me there, taste it for yourself!
