Guests will learn to cook in the farm's professional kitchen.

Itinerary Details

Operated by: Matera Cooking Class

‘Matera Cooking Class’ invites you to your own personal cooking class set at a beautiful local olive and orange farm just outside of Matera.

After being picked up by a member of the family in the centre of Matera, you’ll take the 15 minute drive to the farmhouse, which is set amongst a beautiful protected nature reserve that also includes a stunning lake.

First up? A quick tour of the farm so that you can really understand where the food we use in this part of the world comes from before we start cooking.

Then, it’ll be straight into the kitchen where you’ll meet Silvia, the daughter of the family, who has had over 20 years of seeing her Mamma wow local and international guests with her traditional Matera cooking.

You’ll learn to make fresh pasta, a typical pasta sauce and also a third typical dish from Matera. The family and the farm are all about seasonal cooking, so what you cook will very much depend on the time of the year. You may even be invited to go and pick some fresh herbs and vegetables – again depending on the season.

Then it will be time to sit down all together and enjoy the food you’ve made with some delicious local wine and a few extra little treats.
