Tour description provided by Viator

Spend three delicious hours learning how to cook real Apulian cuisine.  Led by the owner of the cooking school, experienced and talented chef, the hands on cooking class provides instruction on making traditional dishes like grandmother’s homemade pasta, delicious Apulian appetizers, meatballs or meat rolls and eggplant parmigiana and tiramisu. We love to share our traditions that have been passed down in our family with our clients and we will get you perfectly involved in how our food is prepared. When all is prepared and cooked, sit down  by the pool to enjoy the meal you made, accompanied by wine pairings.
