Sit down for an authentic Italian dinner

I am indebted to travel writer Matt Gross for discovering a unique new way to enliven and expand your appreciation of Italy by arranging to have an authentic multicourse dinner with an Italian family in their home. It costs a registration fee of 3 euros, then 35 euros for the magnificent feast itself (including wine), which leaves you so bloated with satisfaction that you can scarcely walk out the door when the evening ends. We can only hope that other countries will create similar programs for their own homegrown family chefs, and thus add another dimension to the rewards of international travel.
