My house is child friendly and we can organize classes and experiences indoor and outdoor with and for children. Almost all activities and workshops can be tailored for children. Eva and Noah will be happy to meet new friends!
You will be my guests, in Poggiardo, a nice little town in the southeastern part of the Salentine Peninsula, at only 8 km from the sea and 40 km from Lecce. We can stay a half day together and spend that time by preparing a menu, which we can decide before your arrival.
We let ourselves be inspired by the products that the season of the year offers and l will do my best to select the best ingredients, with zero food miles: vegetables, local dairy products and meat and fresh fish.
If you like fish, we can buy it at the local market. If you prefer vegetarian food, we will rely on the recipes of the Apulian tradition, a simple peasant cuisine whose main ingredients are seasonal vegetables, legumes, cereals and of course pasta and bread (with flour from local wheats). Essential is the use of extra-virgin olive oil. But if there is an Italian dish you have always wanted to cook, just tell me and we can prepare it together.
The time we spend together is not a simple “cooking class”, but an experience, a memory to take back home. This is the reason why I chose to cook in my home: my guests are not tourists, but friends that I am happy to meet and to share an experience with. I have a comfortable kitchen where up to 5 persons can cook, but if there is a larger group, we can use the kitchen of a nearby “masseria”. If you have your own place in Salento and wish to cook at home, I will be glad to come!
