An Italian Adventure – Come and Cook with Kitchen Culinaire in Italy

Come and explore the many epicurean delights that Puglia has to offer.

Located in southern Italy, Puglia is renowned for its stunning landscapes and local produce. For eight days, we will search out the freshest seasonal ingredients at local markets and visit the shops of artisanal bakers, butchers and cheese mongers in nearby towns and villages. We’ll travel to neighboring vineyards for wine tastings and visit a local bakery, which offers the famous Altamura bread, the only DOP bread in Europe. Puglia is a food lover’s paradise and we look forward to making the most of our delicious daily discoveries!

Of course a Kitchen Culinaire experience wouldn’t be complete without cooking. Our time together will be centered around hands-on classes in the kitchen of the elegantly rustic B&B Il Nido dei Falchi located in the historical centre of Altamura in Palazzo Santoro. Designed to be informal yet informative, these classes are filled with lots of laughter and learning. Cheese and yogurt making, Puglian olive oil tastings and pasta workshops focusing on traditional techniques and regional sauces combined with highlighting seasonal ingredients are just some of the culinary components we’ll explore. We’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor with unforgettable al fresco dining in the fields and under the stars… 

We are limiting the number of guests to 14 people. We’d love to have you join us!
