Eat and Drink in Jefferson's Virginia

Posted By on Tue, Apr 2, 2013 at 10:26 AM

Last year I told you about Gwen Pratesi, the force behind the James Beard Award-nominated food and travel blog Bunky Cooks. Pratesi also has a side business leading culinary tours with her husband Roger. Last year's trip to Louisville featured some amazing meals and access to many renowned chefs and behind the scenes experiences. Attendees even had the chance to drink bourbon with Julian Van Winkle himself.

Pratesi's next tour promises similar opportunities to experience the cuisine of Virginia as she leads a group to the Richmond and Charlottesville area of Virginia from April 21-23. Highlights include a rare behind-the-scenes opportunity to experience Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello as very few people do, a farm dinner at Manakintowne town and a stay at The Jefferson Hotel. They've arranged a special rate of $155 per night at this magnificent property, so If you've ever wanted to stay at The Jefferson this would be an excellent reason to make a road trip.
