Come and join Demuths for a sunshine filled cooking week in Apulia. We will be staying in the magnificent Palazzo Bacile di Castiglione, surrounded by ancient olive trees, citrus groves and figs, with fantastic vegetable markets, close to the sea and unspoilt villages.
Our six day (Sunday to Saturday) residential course from 30th September until 6th October 2018 will give you the opportunity to learn all about the wonderful vegetable cooking of Apulia with Rachel Demuth, Ottavia Mazzoni and Lydia Downey.
On the course we will cook every day with a combination of hands on cookery and demonstration where we will create delicious Italian meals together using the best seasonal vegetables, local oils and wines.
We will shop for vegetables at the local Poggiardo market, learn how to make fresh mozzarella, burrata and ricotta, be taught how to make the famous Orecchiette and have a special wine tasting of the local wines.
We will visit a cooperative vegetable farm and enjoy a lunch from the freshly picked produce, have an evening out at an excellent Agrotourism restaurant and a visit to Otranto, a lovely town on the coast with an amazing “tree of life’ mosaic which covers the entire floor of the cathedral.
To make the most of the Autumn sunshine, there will be time to relax and unwind, swim in the Palazzo pool, a dip in the sea, cycle or walk through the olive groves.

I really enjoyed the experience - it certainly lived up to all my expectations. Helen’s & Ottavia’s relaxed style of tuition was calmly reassuring - nothing we did seemed like a chore.David Howells
