What you'll do

You will be fascinated by the anecdotes about how my grandmother prepared the pasta and what the kitchen represented in the past and in part still represent. An immersion in the real life of Puglia and Italian sociology! I will let Elisa, my friend and precous collaborator as a super expert in the Apulian pasta, communicate with the gestures and with the example; she does not speak ehglish but she will always be able to communicate with the heart and experience. And once you will be at home producing your own good food, will be precious the memory of what she showed you. I will instead communicate, if necessary at the same time, in English, Italian and French and you will probably laugh at my flights from one language to another and my role as a "slave in the kitchen of Elisa":-)
allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home.
The wine, the foods that I serve together with the pasta that we prepare together and that are all local and largely fruit of my organic vegetable garden, do the rest.
The lunch that follows is collaborative, all peoples help and, crockery and pans in the hands, all peoples invade my house too, with my great pleasure because this allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home.

My promise: a cheerful creative experience, fun and a relaxed atmosphere; I want to involve you in our culture and in our way of life. I want you take away with you a small bag of pasta made by your hands and a lot of Puglia hospitable.
I will not bore you with long descriptions and notions at the beginning, but making pasta and having dinner, I will tell you about the poverty of our traditional food and how much this now becomes a luxury because it is healthy food; about the varieties of grains, of different types of pasta in Italy; some tricks to get her to succeed!

We had a truly wonderful day! It was our first day in Italy and it felt like we were visiting an olds friends house. Manuela opened her home to us and even went out of her way to give us tips for the rest of our trip. It was a truly authentic experience!

What a wonderful evening we spent! Manuela is a fantastic host, super easygoing, down to earth and so lovely. I really enjoyed learning how to make pasta. I liked how i got involved in every step so I made my own pasta. The location is so pretty, fairy tale style :-) the ingredients used are all high quality mainly homegrown in her garden. She offers as well accommodation and if i knew that before i would of definitely stayed on her property! Thank you Manuela for this very nice evening we spent all together. Kindest Regards Jordan and Barbara.

We looooooved our cooking class with Manuela in her gorgeous, rustic and incredibly cosy Italian country home. We not only learnt how to make delicious orrichiette with the traditional method, but also about the Puglian way of life. It was authentic and fun, and we left with full bellies and with many recommendations for the local area. Manuela is a fabulous host and a lovely person — you’ll have a brilliant time!

We couldn’t except a better experience with Manuela & Elisa! They were really friendly and funny. We loved to make pastas with them while drinking wine and telling stories. The dinner was excellent, we spent a great moment with Manuela & Elisa. I highly recommend the experience. It was a great highlight of our trip in Italy!

Very friendly and cosy atmosphere. The cooking experience was fun and interesting, besides the prepared food we’ve also tasted Manuela’s cuisine from the garden. Lisa was amazing, she was teaching us to prepare pasta and enjoyed when we did it. It was great experience, enjoyed every minute.
