Cooking Classes

The Pugliese tradition of preparing simple, healthy meals using locally grown food and beloved extra virgin olive oil is passed on in our very popular cooking classes. True, authentic southern Italian cuisine is celebrated as our guests participate in preparing their meal. After working up the appetite, the lights are dimmed and dinner is served. The rest of the evening is so wonderful, you’ll just have to come and see! Guided by Cinzia or occasional guest chefs.

Paint & Sip 

Truly a fun way to tap in to your creative side, and if you don’t have one you will find it during our Paint & Sip classes. If you can lift your wine glass, you can lift your paintbrush – and the rest is fun, laughter and your very own masterpiece! Bring friends or come on your own, either way come as you are and we take care of the rest!

Limoncello Class

Once you take our Limoncello making class everyone will want to be your best friend. We take you through the steps to make this famous southern Italian after-dinner liqueur. Roll up your sleeves and enjoy the citrusy aroma as we prepare a batch together. Don’t worry – we send you off with the recipe and a few other surprises!
