What you'll do
Cooking is part of our family traditions. We prepare and cook typical local dishes. Guests are welcome!! You will be the cooks here, preparing orecchiette, sagne, minchiareddrhi under our instructions. You will be equipped with rolling-pins, a table of course, cooking tools and all the ingredients needed in the preparations of our pasta fresca. We will tell you the origins of the different kinds of flours and we will answer all your questions. Then, Pittule will be in turn!! It’s the typical tasty fried food during our Christmas period. We will show you how a Pasticciotto is prepared and you can taste it!! We will hand you a manual with all the recipes written both in Italian and English. Our guests can take everything they have prepared with them, in order to come back home with a little piece of Salento.
Simona & Maria
Hi! We are Simona and Maria Stefàno. We are sisters, born and grew up in Otranto and we share the same Airbnb account. We own a private school, where boys and girls come to improve their skills and solve their problems in studying. We have been using Aribnb for more than 5 years either as guests or hosts. Now, we would like to offer you more than seaside and touristic attractions that is only a very little part of our enchanting Salento, whose identity hides behind the local recipes!!!

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
