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 experience takes place in our Trulli-house in an outside area close to our garden. Parking is close to our house, 100 meters (110 yd) by foot.
The class is focused on the Orecchiette (how-to-make), the Apulian typical pasta and 2 typical recipes. We will eat all togheter our preparations in a 3 courses lunch/dinner based on seasonal products. It includes also a short historical tour about the Trulli, one of the Apulian typical buildings, where we live.

In case of bad weather, there's a comfortable kitchen-living room, also warmed/refreshed.
