One of the most important symbol of Puglia the orecchiette home-made Pasta is a pillar in our culinary tradition.
WE OFFER to learn how to do this home-made pasta in the charming atmosphere of Trulli and the magic  of the Mediterranean Musquee of Valle Itria (Itria Valley). From wise hands, we will share our knowledge to create this “piece of art”, following the traditional receipe and with symple instruments/ingredients: water, flour, a pastryboard and a knife. All ancient secrets will be revealed to realize a perfect “Orecchietta”, with the unexpected ingredients of Love, Patience and Wind.
