Imagine yourself on a dreamy Sunday in the countryside, where the entire family, under Nonna’s watchful eye, prepares the entire Sunday lunch for the day in a fortified Masseria near Polignano a Mare. Traditional methods and flavors, from shared antipasti to hand-rolled fresh pasta courses, using the best locally sourced produce including Nonna’s crops. To top it all off, a dessert with fruits from her fruit trees. Once ready, everyone will gather around the table to enjoy the dishes together, in a true Italian family style.
You will prepare fresh pasta together, the typical orecchiette with durum flour, side dishes and antipasti. The brasciole is a family favorite, with really good sliced beef, that you will prepare with typical Sunday red sauce, slow cooked. One person of the “family” will prepare the dough for the real Barese focaccia and another will be guided to prepare the dessert for the perfect ending after the lunch.
Lots of the fresh produce is from Chef Domenico family’s farm as well as the cheeses.
This is a true Sunday lunch and what many traditional families are used to, an experience we love and we are proud to share with all food lovers visiting Puglia. A unique, fun and authentic experience, perfect for families, friends, groups and even team building activities.
