Sicily & Naples with Zach Pollack

September 12 – 18, 2022

Just a few spots left! Meet vintners and cheesemakers, street artists and top local chefs, hike to vineyards perched atop a mighty volcano with sweeping views of the Ionian sea, as we go deep in the story behind what makes southern Italy so delicious.

We travel with Zach Pollack, the chef/owner of some of LA’s hottest Italian restaurants. Zach’s many successes start with having eaten his way through each of Italy’s 20 regions. And, of course, the two years he lived in Italy, mastering his culinary craft under the guidance of some of Italy’s top chefs. Now Zach is coming back to show us his Sicily, the rugged beauty and regional flavors, the Sicily that captured his heart and soul.
