Celebrated by the NYT for its role in promoting Puglia's ancient and Unesco heritage cuisine, Stile Mediterraneo Cooking & Wine School offers first class and unique culinary and cultural experiences with highly professional local experts. From hands on cooking classes, to visits to best markets and food producers, all experiences are a way to learn about the authentic culture of Puglia with the local food & wine experts. Classes are hands on and take place in different locations around Lecce and Puglia. Wine tour and visits to artisans are provided in Lecce and rest of Puglia. You will learn an ancient cuisine that in Southern Italian was handed down mother to daughter for centuries (as NO MEN would be allowed into a real Pugliese cuisine!) And that is today Unesco heritage as well as one of the healthiest in the world, according to Harvard Medical School. You will learn the unique Stile Mediterraneo cookery method put together by food expert, Cinzia Rascazzo, and her team of doctors and cardiologists: this is a unique method that enhances food nutrients and flavors and is only taught at Stile Mediterraneo Cooking School. The Stile Mediterraneo School was founded by Cinzia Rascazzo, certified olive oil taster, 3rd level AIS wine sommelier, Harvard MBA.
