In our one day cooking class Puglia, you will make Pugliesi homemade breads and focaccia.  Start off preparing antipastipolpette di melanzane, eggplant puffs; fresh pasta and sauces like ciceri e trio and tagliatelle with chick peas, and  main courses such as cavatelli, roulades of veal in onion sauce or zuppa di pesce, seafood soup.  Desserts are delicious with traditions such as torte, crostatabiscotti, purcedduzzi, small fried gnocchi with honey, and taralli. Following each cooking class, guests dine on the foods that were prepared in class, paired with a local red and wine.  A one-of-a-kind Puglia cooking class with farm-to-table ingredients and local wine is an experience to remember! Following your cooking class in Puglia, everyone joins at the table to share their hand-made meal with Puglia in your heart! Our Puglia culinary experience – cooking and food tour too – will have you cooking like a local.
