We had the best day of our holidays sharing it with Simone and lots of lovely people from all over the world! We made some amazing dishes and learned about local culture and history. This was such amazing value we spent most of the day learning, chatting and relaxing in such a fun way. We loved it so much we booked our friends on and they loved it too!

This was a highlight of our 3 weeks in Italy/Sicily for sure! Simone was informative about everything, from showing us her historic trullo to tell us details about cooking all sorts of Italian dishes. Her mama participated too and was a delight to have helping us learn how to make orecchiette. I would highly recommend this class as an afternoon of learning and entertainment to get the full experience of Puglia!

If you enjoy cooking and love to learn about the Puglian culture….not to mention, eating a delicious 3 course meal with beverages, this is an experience not to miss. Simona and her wonderful Italian mum gave us a fantastic lesson in making pasta and forming the orecchiette unique to this area. The company was great, as everyone was engaged. Simona’s knowledge of the Puglian region was fascinating, especially as we got to tour her wonderful trullo home. I highly recommend this experience.

We enjoyed this class and Simona was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and cuisine of the region. The class is hands-on when it comes to making and shaping various types of pasta and cutting veggies for salad, but it was mostly a culture class. Simona was generous in sharing her home, a trullo. One complaint: Class description said maximum of 10 people, but there were 20 guests. The class lasted 6 hours (10am-4pm), not 4 hours as advertised.

I highly recommend this cooking class, we had such a wonderful time! Simona and her mother welcomed us into their home and taught us their traditions and family recipes, as well as some history of Puglia. It was such a lovely day topped off with a delicious meal that we prepared. It was truly authentic and worth it, cannot recommend enough!!

Lovely morning spent making traditional orecchiette pasta in Simona’s garden. This is so much more than a cooking class – Simona showed us around her beautiful Trullo home and told us the history of the building and the local area as well as Puglian customs.

Simona and her mother taught us their family recipes and did a great job of explaining everything. At the end we feasted on a traditional salad we’d made and the pasta, followed by fresh figs and grapes from Simona’s garden. Our 8 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed it too. Highly recommended.

Simona's cooking class was a delight! The day started by getting to know Simona and her family as well as our fellow classmates over a cup of espresso. Then we made our first course aquasala, followed by rolling out our pasta dough and learning how to make the orecchiette shape. While the pasta was cooking, Simona showed us around her Trulli and explained the history of the region of Puglia. Lastly, we ate our delicious pasta which was served with tomato sauce and bread crumbs. The day was made so special by little things like trying the fresh walnuts and figs from Simona's trees and meeting her wonderfully plump cats. For the price, this experience cannot be beat! I can't recommend it enough!

What a fantastic experience. To learn to make pasta in Italy, in (and outside) a Trulli, was amazing and such a treat. Great value for money too. Can't wait to get home and share my newly gained experience with my family

Comprehensive. Simona & her mum had so much interesting knowledge to share not only about the food but the history of Puglia and the Trulli. Thank you for this wonderful experience. Everyone back home wants us to make them Orecchiette now haha

We looked in to a few different cooking classes to experience on our 3 week Italy/Sicily trip and we do not regret choosing Simone’s class. It was definitely a highlight of our trip! Not only did we learn how to make pasta, but it was a full history lesson of Italian foods & cooking as well as life in Puglia and a tour of her historic trullo. And finished with a beautiful many course typical Italian meal! I’d do it again all over for sure!!
