The Garfagnana is a beautiful jewel in Tuscany. Just two hours north of Lucca, this rural enclave of outstanding natural beauty is nestled between two mountain ranges; the spectacular jagged ‘marble mountains’ of the Alpi Apuane and the rolling ‘spine of Italy’, the Apennines. Cheesemaking is at the top of the agenda for our excusion today to the Garfagnana
In a little hamlet, we have the privilege of seeing ricotta being made. The whole family is involved…hot work for nonno, but this is part of his daily routine. This is the kind of artisanal industry that makes Italy great! Afterward, we taste some of the delicious cheeses the family makes.
