Day2 – Italian cooking and herb experience
We’ll start the week with the Italian food experience what a better way! obviously an important role in Italians culture, not only for the tasty and health menu’s but more so for the pleasure of cooking, eating and being together. (That’s what Italian life is about). The convent is a truly authentic experience, seeing an majestic historical building managed by a small group of sweet nuns is really something special. There welcoming smiles and friendly attitudes really do make you feel part of a family and the cooking together is simply wonderful and truly enjoying.
Once a cultural centre for noble family girls, now offering traditional food and friendly accommodation. We’ll have a traditional pasta making workshop, plus a demonstration of how they used to and still make delicious ice cream, after flavouring our self-made pasta dishes. In the early afternoon a visit to a private herb and flower garden for a lesson on the utilization of flowers and herbs in food and drink. “La Valletta” is a small farm where we try to select Mediterranean drought resistant plants. These plants allow us to create ecological, low maintenance gardens rich in colours, shape and texture. In the garden we have created a series of different environments which don’t need to be watered at all: the wildflower meadow, the gravel garden, the Mediterranean “ macchia”, the slopes covered with cistus, the dry stone walls plants and, recently, a drought tolerant vegetable garden. Again what we trust you to experience is authenticity, exclusivity and to intermingle with locals and their passions.
