Enhance your book club experience — To Tuscany with Love
If sharing a meal or food is part of your meeting, why not prepare one of the Bella’s Tastes from Tuscany recipes on this site, or in the back of the book? Alternatively, prepare one of your own favorite Italian dishes to share with your friends.
Do a wine tasting with one or two Tuscan wines. Your selection might include:
- Vernaccia di San Gimignano
- Chianti Classico
- Rosso di Montalcino
- Rosso di Montepulciano
- Brunello di Montalcino
- Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Discuss the different designations Tuscan wines may carry: DOCG, DOC, IGT, or Super Tuscan.
If one of your members has visited Italy or Tuscany, have them bring their own pictures and experiences to share with the group.
Have your book club plan an imaginary visit to Tuscany, with each member discussing which town or city in To Tuscany with Love intrigued them most.
You may choose to share some of your own memorable college or high school reunion stories. Bring a photo of your graduating class to share—everyone loves to smile and chuckle at photos from the past.
