Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

The Dec. 31, 2009 deadline for joining me in Savannah, Ga. is quickly approaching. Join me and friends for a "Sumptuous, Savory and Simply Irresistible Tour of Historic Savannah, Georgia" March 25-29, 2010.

Contact me at or phone me at 952-929-9583 to make a reservation.

Our home will be the historic, Planter's Inn where we will breakfast each morning and enjoy cocktails each evening. The tour includes dinner at the well-known "Pink House". A Savannah tour that includes "The Garden of Good and Evil." A visit to the James Edward Olgethrope home, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and Bonaventure Cemetery. Lunch in the Historic District and and afternoon tour of the historic homes and gardens of Savannah.

We will attend two culinary classes and a "This is Your Life-Paula Deen Tour". Our last evening will include a progressive dinner that will begin with the Savannah Bee Company to enjoy honey samples and gourmet cheeses. Then we are off to a "Mint Julep Party" in the private gardens of the Butler estate and finally a multi-course dinner at the Dresser Palmer House.

The tour includes 4 nights accommodations, baggage handling, breakfast each morning and wine and cheese each evening. Escorted trolley transportation for all planned events not walking distance of the hotel. Driver gratuities. Licensed, professional guides, all tour entrance fees and select tour of homes tickets. All breakfasts, 2 lunches and 3 dinners.

Capacity is limited. So just when our Minnesota winter is dragging on it will be spring in beautiful Savannah, Ga. For a full tour brochure go to my website at and click on the tours button.

Please join me.

Buon appetito,
