What you'll do
In the most evocative typical ambient, the Trulli and the Valle d'itria (Unesco heritage) we will learn the ancient art of handmade "orecchiette" pasta from wise hands, following the traditional recipe and equipped with simple tools: water, flour, a pastry board and a knife. Ancient secrets will be revealed: how to make a perfect "orecchietta" with the ingredients of patience and love, but not the only ones. We will cook togheter this treasure with fresh seasonal and organic ingredients: the typical orecchietta with fresh sauce, basil and ricotta cheese or with meat sauce. We will enjoy the pasta during a special lunch (on Wendsday) or dinner (on Monday) of 3 courses, based on typical starters (most on vegetables), a first course composed by the orecchiette of our cooking class with a condiment of your choice (as above), second of meat, vegetables, fruits, local wine (Negramaro, Primitvo, Salice) and water. The CALENDAR depends on the season. Till April the class will be done on morning with lunch. Pls verify the calendar before booking it.
