DON’T MISS ANY FOOD-DRIVEN COMPLIMENTARY DES­TI­NA­TION DIS­COV­ERY EVENTS THAT WIND­STAR PRO­VIDES. I joined one in Portofino, Italy, when sail­ing Star Pride in the Med. Our group was whisked by ferry to Villa Du­razzo, over­look­ing the Tigul­lio Gulf in Santa Margherita Lig­ure. As a live band played, a lo­cal chef demon­strated how to make au­then­tic pesto and servers heaped our plates with ev­ery Ital­ian dish imag­in­able. The light­est pesto lasagna, stun­ning tomato sal­ads, gi­ant Parme­san hunks we broke into chunks — you name it, they served it and we ate it and quaffed lo­cal wine un­til we nearly burst — of course, still grin­ning from ear to ear.
