WHAT YOU CAN GET
A taste of Puglia, right on your table.
Personal & Private Chef
AT YOUR OWN HOME OR HOLIDAY VILLA FOR PRIVATE DINNERS AND LUNCHES
There are images in life which you never tire of seeing. For me, the best feeling in the world has always been observing my loved ones or my guests from the kitchen, while they taste and enjoy the food I’ve prepared for them.
My personal chef services are possible for a one off dinner or lunch, a weekly special treat, or if you prefer, your entire stay for your holiday in Puglia.
A service designed upon your needs and those of your family or guests, using our own produce from Masseria Bianco (our farmhouse).
SINGLE OR GROUP EXPERIENCE
We are very proud to share our knowledge, tips and tricks through our memorable cooking classes, teaching you how to create and get to know the local cuisine, allowing you to always have a bit of Puglia with you, wherever you are.
Our classic cooking classes will take you through the step-by-step process of any traditional dish.
Fresh pasta making, such as orecchiette, strascinate and many more, even fresh egg pasta made with special flours can be prepared together. Panzerotti classes are a world of fun, or perhaps you’d love to know and learn our secret to getting your Bari-style focaccia bread just right. Typical taralli (traditional local snacks) are a favourite for the whole family to prepare together too.
We will provide you with a range of traditional options from which you can select your favourite.
Together we will agree on the contents of the cooking class and what you would love to learn to prepare. Adaptations for all dietary requirements are our specialty.
Everything you prepare during the cooking class will be the main component of the menu that you’ll taste at the end of the class.
Each participant will be provided with their very own apron #pugliakitchen.
Cooking classes can be one on one or for groups.
Traditional Cooking Experience/Party
“IL PRANZO DELLA DOMENICA”
A real experience like those dreamy Sundays in Puglia, in the countryside, where the entire family under Nonna’s careful supervision, prepares the whole menu of the day, especially fresh pasta, to then gather around the table to taste what was prepared with love and quite a bit of ” noise”!
Together we’ll prepare fresh pasta and much more, everything will be part of the lunch or dinner menu, which will include:
Appetizers, Primi (pasta dish), Secondo (main entrée), freshly prepared dessert and we will also select the drinks together.
A unique and authentic experience, perfect for families or groups.
WITH OUR LOVE
Francesca, my life partner and inspiration, is a professional event organizer across Italy.
With her passion and extensive experience, she will tailor, upon your needs, your dining event in Puglia, wherever you decide. Boutique events such as birthday parties, special dinners, cocktail parties, laid back get-togethers, intimate weddings and even proposals are her speciality.
With real teamwork, we will design the menu and the set-up to match your wishes, even live entertainment to make your experience even more memorable, allowing you to relax and enjoy these special moments.
EVERYWHERE YOU ARE
A traditional cooking class just as we’d do here in Puglia, but at your place, wherever you are!
After agreeing on the necessary ingredients, I will teach you, step by step, how to bring the flavour of Puglia into your home and onto your table, anywhere in the world.
A great option for one-to-one lessons, before a dinner party you are hosting or even to prepare something delicious as a couple for a special date night.
FOR YOUR BODY AND YOUR SOUL
Being a Personal Chef goes hand in hand with me being a personal trainer of many years.
Food and health are Life and cannot be set apart, just as bread couldn’t exist if not bound together with water and flour.
A complete experience, encompassing both the design of balanced menus for your personal physical needs and goals and training sessions to make your holiday the perfect moment to love yourself , have fun and do yourself some good.
