On The Road Culinary Adventures in Virginia

The culinary history of Virginia is storied and interesting. From the historic garden of Jefferson’s Monticello estate, to the small specialty growers of Powhatan, Virginia, there is a wide variety of farming and farmers that make up Virginia’s agricultural society. What if you, yes YOU, could have the opportunity to spend three days in Virginia, doing nothing more than eating and learning about the great past and present of Virginia’s culinary society? Would you do it? I think you definitely would.

On The Road culinary adventures specialize in culinary travel. They take tourists from city to city, teaching and showing them the great histories that cities have with food, farming and great dining.  With small tours that reach up to 20 people, each tour is small, intimate and provides the best setting for hands on learning and fun! 

From April 21st to April 23rd, On The Road is taking a small group of people to Richmond and Charlottesville, Virginia to experience the great culinary history of the state, as well as tour and taste in Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate like no one ever has. On The Road will take you right into the heart of Monticello’s orchards and gardens for a specially prepared lunch.
