    Itinerary

    Our cooking course takes place at an ancient building dating back to the 17th century and previously owned by the local Brentano family, who from being merchants of oranges and lemons produced on their lands and exported to Germany, finally moved abroad and became powerful bankers.

    The location is very charming and the view is great. The house is surrounded by land where our host and chef Alice grows her olive and lemon trees, her vegetable garden and keeps the chicken and hens.

    You will be given the option of a pasta class, making tagliatelle and cavatelli pasta by hand, with two typical sauces of the delicious Italian cuisine: tomato bacon sauce and black cabbage walnut pesto sauce.

    Or you will be left free to follow Alice’s spur of the moment menu, based on local ingredients. Starting from her vegetable garden, pick the eggs from the chicken coop, enjoy bio and sustainable ingredients, such as cheese, butter and meat, locally sourced by our host. You will transform these freshly picked ingredients into delicious dishes, also creating personalized versions of the basic recipes. At the end of the course you will savor the fruits of your labor and share the freshly prepared meal. A starter and a homemade dessert will be served as well. 

    You will have the unique opportunity to immerse in the world of fresh, authentic and sustainable food.

    The menu is of course seasonal. This cooking course will enable you to discover local cooking traditions and tips, ideas and methods which you can take back to try out in your home country and share with your friends and family.

    We’ll provide all food and drink, all that is required is that you bring enthusiasm and willingness to learn, to meet new people and try to speak some Italian along the way.
