Slow Cooking Puglia™

Letizia’s One-Day Cooking Class

In the heart of Conversano, where trulli homes dot the ancient town with stone palazzos and castles, is Letizia’s kitchen. 

Signora Letizia welcomes you to her kitchen in the heart of Puglia for hands-on cooking classes with lunch and dinner to follow.  Using only in-season and local fruits, vegetables and produce, she welcomes each guest with open arms!  Letizia, a local from Puglia, welcomes each guest to her villa while sharing her passion for cooking, culture and art.

In this one day cooking class, you will make Pugliesi homemade breads & focaccia, antipasti – polpette 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.

Buon Appetito! 

Cooking classes begin at 5pm and are approximately 3 hours.
