Meet your local chef from your hotel in Ostuni and begin this amazing experience through traditional Italian taste. Follow your local chef and learn how to prepare a delicious meal.
First, you will prepare tiramisu, layering liqueur soaked biscuits and mascarpone cheese and decorating with flaked chocolate. Then, you will continue with the preparation of the tomato sauce, slow-cooked to enhance and sweeten the flavor. Learning how to make traditional handmade pasta, orecchiette, will be one of the highlights of your day. Its unique shape (like little ears) and the combining of Apulian wheat flour and semolina, produces little domes of heaven. Pasta preparation will be enhanced with olives, focaccia, taralli and a glass of prosecco.
Next, prepare the 'pastella' for the medley of fried vegetables. The vegetable pieces are rolled in flour, then dipped in a mixture of eggs beaten with finely chopped parsley, salt, pepper and just a bit of grated pecorino cheese and then steeped in hot olive oil. Then, learn all the secrets behind the perfect eggplant parmesan (parmigiana di melanzane) using the sweet tomato sauce that has been cooking for about an hour and delicious local ingredients. While preparing the eggplants, you will start to fry the zucchini flowers filled with locally produced ricotta and enjoy tasting them while they are hot from the pan. Have time to relax, sit down at the linen-covered tables for a restaurant-style four-course meal with award-winning wines.
