Pasta connecting cultures

It was a lovely experience and my sister and I learnt a lot about food and local dishes as well as making pasta. Lisa and Stefanie were great teachers and made us feel really welcome.
Amazing food, delicious wine- great experience!

You won't regret it - an amazing evening
, Oct 2021
Paola and Tiziano were great hosts and we would highly recommend this. The evening felt really tailored, was only us and not merged with other people and we learnt a lot about the region, local food and seasonal produce. As a confident cook with friends less so experienced, it was a good starter for pasta making and Paola had prepared the most part of the meal so it's more about learning rather than cooking from scratch the entire meal. Was a lovely starter, pasta course, secondi and pudding, paired with local wine. If there are more than 4 of you, you might need to pay a small subsidy for transfers but Tiziano will arrange. All in all we left saying it was one of the best and most memorable evenings in Puglia.
Beware last minute cancellations

Cancelled the morning after payment went out due to an illness that was several days old apparently. Waiting for a refund. We were in Lecce so spoke to someone locally and had a different but wonderful pasta cooking course run privately.

Thanks for your comment ! your host got a serious injury and we immediately wrote you that ! maybe next time try to book the class with more notice as a cooking class is not like selling a museum tickets

An evening of cooking in a lovely family home
, Nov 2019
Paola and Triziano provided a great evening of good local food and an introduction to making many types of local pasta. We practiced making local pasta, of all different shapes, then sat down to great wine, conversation and food. It was a lovely evening that we will always remember of Lecce.
Memorable experience

What a privilege to be invited into this wonderful home and to join the family for an evening. The food was amazing and the company even better. We loved having a go at making the local pasta.
A fabulous evening
