Peggy Markel’s Culinary Adventures is going into its 19th year!
In that time, at least 300 litres of extra virgin olive oil have been produced from the one tree that a circle of us stood around to commemorate our first trip in 1992. That’s a huge harvest from one tree over the years… It gives perspective on what we have experienced in the realm of delicious and spirited culinary adventures in Tuscany, Amalfi, Spain, Sicily, and Morocco since then!
Curiosity is what drives our sailboat to a small bay off the coast of Capri, what draws us down alleyways in the Medina of Marrakech, and into the hills of the Allpujarras. We want to know what goes on off the beaten path. We are not looking for the ordinary. We are searching for essence, that intrinsic quality that moves us; something extraordinary that we want to see, get to know or taste! It can be in a person, a place or a particular flavor.
