Puglia Cooking class "Le orecchiette, che pasta!"

Puglia Cooking class "Le orecchiette, che pasta!"

An experience to live our traditions and know the origins of our cuisine in the typical Apulia buildings: i trulli surrounded by a peaceful nature.

The art of making the orecchiette (our traditional pasta) is part of a ritual made also of soil and wind, a time in the countryside, slowly spent for preparing our lunch collecting wild herbs, fruits, tomatoes, melons and all that our organic garden seasonaly produce.The same slow time lived by our grandmothers to prepare the daily lunch for all the family.

At home, a pastry board, the flour and the wind will be the simple ingredients to make our Orecchiette. We will learn to do this particular pasta, its variations and many other secrets will be revealed. We will then partecipate to prepare meat sauce, vegetables and cheese and all necessary for lunch. We will taste all our preparations.

The cooking class begins normally at 10.00 in our 5 cones Trulli as meeting point.

The activity is made outside and we will teach you how to produce Apulian typical pasta, the orecchiette and to prepare a typical menu. We also include an aperitif and a little tour about our traditions, countryside and typical buildings, the Trulli where we live, and finally a lunch based on seasonal products and typical dishes. A vegetarian/vegan solution it's available.
