Say Hello to an Eruption of New Italian Travel Experiences

Say Hello to an Eruption of New Italian Travel Experiences

Mama Margaret announces an exciting new Cooking, Wine and Walking Tour in Sicily.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 12, 2006

You’ve picked up your brochures and searched the Internet as you plan your next vacation, but nothing is beckoning you the way you’d like. Vegas is too noisy, Mexico is too crowded. You’re not one to sit around on your holiday – you want to meet the people, plunge your hands into the local cuisine, and learn about the wine you buy.

Take a vacation from the ordinary with Mama Margaret’s new cooking tour in the new most popular region of Italy – Sicily. The big island at the toe of Italy’s boot, Sicily boasts stunning architecture, a diverse culture, and gastronomic delights you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Explore Palermo’s colourful Vuccheria market in a warren of dim streets where you can buy everything from swordfish, to spleen sandwiches to contraband cigarettes. Explore the seven Aeolian Islands off the north east coast, especially Stromboli with its gleaming black volcanic rock beaches, contrasted with stark white houses and the excitement of an active volcano.

Of course, the best part of this tour is the food. Create your own feasts with seafood (swordfish, tuna, mussels, prawns, sea bass, red mullet, anchovies and more), eggplant, figs, capers, olives, almonds, pine nuts, fennel, raisins, lemons, oranges. Top things off with famous Sicilian dessert wines like Marsala, Passito di Pantelleria, and you’ll never want to leave the table.

Packages include Cooking, Wine, and Volcanoes in the stunning Mt. Etna region, or cooking on a country estate in southeast Sicily, complete with an exploration of ancient towns soaked in beautiful Baroque architecture.

Being able to offer this additional service places the casino operation in a more competitive position in the entertainment, convention, and tour and travel industry.

Service of alcohol will be available from 9am to 2am Sunday through Thursday and 9am to 1:30am Friday and Saturday. Alcohol will be available for purchase on the first floor main gaming area to include all slot areas, non smoking, table games and the high stakes area. "Executive Management knows the importance of training programs for casino team members and has trained all frontline staff and management whether they will be serving alcohol or not. We don't take our responsibilities lightly and are going above and beyond state regulations to make this transition the best it can be for our guests and employees," said Richards.
