Plantspiration in Italy

Have you been dreaming of the perfect, 100% vegan holiday in beautiful Italy? Well you’re in luck! From August 3-10, 2024, you can join us on this plant-filled adventure with Sara Tercero from Better Food Guru AND Richard Makin from School Night Vegan! With their quick wit and immense vegan food knowledge, we’re thrilled to have two incredible vegan food and lifestyle experts join us in one of our favourite locations. 

Guests of this experience will have the chance to participate in two cooking demo experiences (one with each of our hosts), on site at our beautiful hotel, Pensione Vignamaggio, with the help of our wonderful in house vegan chef Gabriele Palloni. 

As always, we’ll have the opportunity to indulge in a mouth-watering menu of veganized Italian food and throughout the trip, we’ll embark on a day of vegan wine-tastings, traverse the varied landscape of colourful Cinque Terre, go on a guided tour of historical Florence and so much more! 

We can’t wait to see you for a glass of wine while we take in the beautiful view on the Tuscany countryside this summer.

Richard Makin is School Night Vegan! “As a long-time foodie, I had developed some pretty good cooking skills, but turning vegan was a whole new challenge! I had to retrain myself to cook without animal products. It was a surprisingly rewarding learning curve! I’m now a food stylist, recipe developer and food editor specialising in animal-free dishes.” -RM
