What our guests say

For anyone who loves food, wine, good company and beautiful surroundings, this experience puts a tick in every box. It went beyond my wildest dreams. If you want to learn about the regional Pugliese cooking, and then hands on cook it yourself, if you want to learn about the culture of the area, meet the people who live and work there, and have fun, this is the place for you. I not only learned a lot on the cooking of southern food, but I enjoyed the wines and the great company! It's hard to put this experience into words. It's just something one should experience!!!!

Lecce Cooking Class Program

Just a few miles away from the heart of Lecce in the beautiful countryside of Puglia (Apulia), you'll find a charming B&B in the middle of a relaxed and welcoming residential neighborhood.  This is where our delightful hands-on cooking lesson is held in English so you don't miss a beat!

After leaving your car in the private parking area, you'll be enthusiastically greeted by two smiling women who you will discover are your cooking instructor and English-speaking cooking class host. Your joinable culinary lesson is always kept very small, allowing you the chance to meet others with your same cooking interests in a convivial yet intimate setting.

Your class will begin, weather permitting, with a visit to the wonderful outdoor vegetable garden to learn about seasonal, organic ingredients and to harvest this delicious produce that will subsequently be used in your cooking course.  With your arrival in the large, welcoming kitchen of this lovely B&B, your Lecce Cooking Class will start with the hands-on pasta making portion of the lesson, focusing on at least two types of handmade pasta.  You might learn varieties like orecchiette, maccheroncini, and spaghetti alla chitarra.  You'll surely note the organic tilt the course maintains, with the flour used in to make the homemade pasta dough being purchased from a local organic miller.  

Your next dive into the Apulian culinary experience will be with the preparation of one or two sauces to accompany the pasta, followed by the preparation of a local meat or fish dish, and ending with a freshly-made dessert.  You will have a break during the morning to enjoy an apertif either indoors or in the charming garden outdoors, and chat with other guests and your hosts.  The cooking class in Lecce concludes with a fantastic seated meal of your prepared dishes, accompanied by delicious local wines. 

Your Lecce Cooking Class also includes a brief wine-tasting lesson from your English-speaking host, who happens to also be an expert sommelier, so you'll surely be exploring both the culinary world and also the enological world that Puglia is lucky enough to contain.  This culinary lesson on traditional dishes from the southern region of Italy is any foodie's dream experience in Italy, and we're happy to make this dream a reality during your stay in Lecce.
