What you'll do
We will make together the dough for pasta with flour and water, trying to realize different traditional shapes of Salento's pasta: sagne torte, orecchiette and minchiareddhi. Once made our pasta you'll have the chance to join an Italian style meal, we will taste it together with the traditional tomato sauce (sugo) with fresh goat cheese or with spicy cheese (ricotta forte) and with a seasonal sauce such as turnip, fresh tomatoes, seasonal pesto or much more. Before tasting our pasta we will enjoy an appetizer with local cheeses coming from farms around Lecce, drinking complimentary rosé wine from a local farm. We are also hosting people through Airbnb in our apartment, so you are welcome to stay with us for a full experience of Lecce and Salento.
Matilde & Aljaz
I am passionate about local products, sustainable household and traditional dishes, wherever I travel to for work or for fun. Lecce and Salento are my home, and the richness of its traditional cuisine always fascinated me. Since I was a kid I always helped my grandmas (and grandpas) cooking, getting passionate about traditional cuisine. After seven years spent far away from here (in Italy and abroad) I moved back to my homeland and I cannot wait to make you discover it through its cuisine!
