Puglia’s food: the authentic Mediterranean cuisine

Experiencing regional cusine is one of the best ways to pull you closer to the heart of the area - especially when it comes to the flavors of Puglia in Southern Italy.

This beautiful region is home to the authentic Mediterranean Cuisine with an emphasis on seafood, fresh vegetables, legumes, mozzarellas, cheese and olive oil. Puglia ranks number one in the production of olive oil, and number two in almond production within Italy. When the almond trees are in bloom, the air is rich with its sweet scent.

Making fresh pasta

Puglia’s cuisine is delicious, yet simple at the same time. It is in essence a home-based cuisine. It is perfect for those who follow a vegetarian diet as well as for those who enjoy the authentic Mediterranean food. It melts together flavors in which you can taste the equilibrium between the sun, land, sea and wind.

Our CIAO LAURA exclusive market tours and cooking classes are held in local landmarks such as a masserie, local homes, pizzeria, pastry shop and professional restaurants, depending on the nature of your lesson and menu of the day.

All cooking classes are small, hands-on and the approach is very personal and relaxed. Our programs are all held with local Pugliese cooks who have big hearts and a passion for cooking and celebrating their Salento lifestyle and cuisine with our travelers from around the globe!
