They are Ambassadors of Puglia's Mediterranean Cuisine and of its benefits for health and longevity. Their goal is to share the secrets of their ancient cuisine and culture, handed down from mother to daugther for centuries.However, Stile Mediterraneo is much more than a Cooking School: it is an authentic cultural experience. You will learn about the local food, wines, culture.....and have fun while meeting new friends!Hope to have you here! Cinzia & Marika « less

My wife and I recently took a cooking class with Cinzia and had a wonderful experience. It was a small class and I was the only male participant. Being clearly out of my league I thought my participation would be mostly to try to stay out of the way of those who knew what they were doing. Cinzia would have... More

My wife and I spent 10 days in Puglia in October, 2013. We travel to Italy every year, selecting a different region for each visit. Lucky for us, 2013 brought us to Puglia and Stile Mediterraneo, a trip we will not soon forget. Puglia was stunning and the highlight of our trip was three days spent with Cinzia and Stile... More

My husband and I spent a half day with Cinzia visiting an olive tree grove, and we learned a lot about extra virgin olive oil. We found her to be very informative and she has a real passion for her work.. We visited an old olive oil press and then returned to Stile Mediterraneo for olive oil tasting and lunch.... More

My husband and I, our sons fiancé and her sister attend a cooking class with Cinzia and Marika. It was the highlight of our trip. We had a variety of cooking experience and all levels were engaged and we all learned so much. We have used their recipes at home many times. It was a truly memorable evening.
