Antipasti Class

What do Central Pennsylvania and Italy have in common?

David and Rynn Caputo.

David & Rynn started Caputo Brothers Creamery in 2011, and over the years have developed award-winning cheeses reminiscent of those they fell in love with while traveling and studying in Italy – and now you have the opportunity to join them for an Italian culinary experience of a lifetime!

Travel is known to educate the mind and soul – we believe it should educate the palate as well!  Living like an Italian is what this culinary adventure is all about – years of travel through all 20 regions of Italy have allowed the Caputos to design a culinary stroll that will take even the most inexperienced traveler comfortably “off the beaten path” to enjoy the Italy that tourists rarely get to experience. Each trip is designed for travelers to experience these rich cultural traditions through cuisine.

Our small group tours (average group size: 18 people) are not just a memorable vacation, but are full of authentic experiences, friendship, and a reverence for the Italian artisans and food traditions of each region we visit.  Each excursion and meal is planned with care to show you the authentic Italy that we love so much.

To reserve your spot or for more details on how you can join us for the culinary adventure of a lifetime, please email travel@caputobrotherscreamery.com or call 717-850-6045.
