ITALIAN GASTRONOMY

italian language schools and courses in Italy - courses of italian and mediterranean cooking   THE COURSE: you will discover Italian and Salentine gastronomy!; the course is held 2 times per week or one time per week in the full equiped kitchen of the school: students will prepare with the help of teachers the typical dishes of Italian cuisine. The course is based on practical and theoretical lessons. Teacher is well trained but he is not a professional. Don't expect a "professional" school for cooking.

APULIAN-SALENTINE GASTRONOMY: AN OLD CULTURAL TRADITION

   The  province of Lecce has, without a doubt, a Mediterranean look about it. Its hot climate and vicinity to the sea, added to being so far south, are ideal for the growth of "weed" and olive trees. The entire territory is covered with olive groves, from which the delicious Pugliese olive oil is pressed. In many parts the rows of olive trees are alternated with large vineyards; vine-growing provides one of the area's main sources of income. The wines produced in this region are full of body and are particularly suitable for making vermouth.italian language schools and courses in Italy - courses of italian and mediterranean cooking The wine and the olive-oil are two foundemental components of the Salentine cuisine.
   The course is the best occasion for sampling the products of a unique cuisine. These and many more dishes are served in the "putèe", the typical Salento restaurants where the traditions of popular cuisine are preserved. The Salentine dishes are surprising: home-made pasta, cakes with honey and accompanied with fried fish, a complex, dried salted cod sauce, round bread rolls with mysterious insignia, pod-shaped honey cakes that allude to ancient Egyptian divinities.
   All of these dishes have borrowed directly from cultures of the Mediterranean Basin and beyond, attesting to Salento's role as the meeting point of the most ancient of civilisations.

Starting dates: every week
Duration: 1 or more weeks;
Lessons: 2 times per week (6 hours in total) or 1 time per week; the cooking course can be combined with the Italian course.
