Puglia: Tastings & Makings with a Professional Chef

Available 23 Jun, 2013 - 29 Jun, 2013


Join Luxury Italian Tours for a seven day feast in Puglia where we learn the secrets of cucina povera, or cooking of the poor. This cuisine is derived from the traditions of the home and whatever can be picked from the land. Puglia is Italy's leading producer of wheat, wine and olives with over 50 million olive trees. It also cultivates the most flavorful and fragrant fennel, artichokes, fava beans and chicory. After a week of total immersion in this culinary experience, you will learn traditional recipes from a private chef who will personally instruct you in the kitchen while you stay at a lovely masseria, or traditional farmhouse with contemporary amenities. You will taste local olive oils, cheeses and learn to make bread from a baker who still employs ancient methods from the 15th century. And of course, no tour that is focused on Italian cuisine would be complete without wine tastings and gelato!
