The Apulian cuisine – already for its agricultural tradition – offers a wide choice of dishes based on pasta, vegetables, fish, legumes and fresh cheeses. In this cooking lesson our organizers will reveal the secrets of Apulian cuisine. The courses are always held in traditional places, such as a country house surrounded by vast areas cultivated with olive trees, figs and almonds, or an ancient house with a large balcony and a beautiful view. On request, some PlacenPeople organizers are also available to move around with all the material, and the lesson can also be done in the kitchen of your holiday home (the course is open up to a maximum of 8 people, but additional guests can be added for lunch).

The day will start early in the morning by shopping with the market, to learn how to choose and use the best seasonal products. The visit to the market is followed by a three-hour practical cooking lesson during which you will create a complete menu, from appetizer to dessert, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients and traditional methods of cooking them, such as fire and oven. wood.

Each cooking lesson’s dish will be introduced by a family story or a local tradition: for example, you will learn how to make the typical orecchiette as do Apulian grandmothers and mothers every Sunday in the kitchens of their families. The Apulian cuisine will amaze you with its simplicity and its unmistakable flavors. Each dish will be a feast of fresh seasonal products, cooked with creativity to make them tasty and transformed into dishes full of taste and tradition.
