“Cooking holiday in Puglia

Instead of carting back souvenirs from your holidays this year, why not return home with an authentic skill that you can use to recreate the flavours of your time away? organises holidays around learning experiences: yoga classes in Portugal, horse riding in France, photography courses in Morocco.

One particularly mouth-watering prospect is the company’s organic cookery holiday in the heart of Puglia, one of Italy’s greatest culinary regions. The eight-day course, beginning on May 4, centres around an airy, rustic kitchen where local cooks Maria and Zina teach you how to make classic Italian dishes such as lasagne and tiramisu, as well as Pugliese specialities such as orchiette pasta and fave e cicorie. You’ll also have a chance to see where the food comes from, tour the school’s farmland and local producers, and explore the surrounding area – highlights include the walled city of Martina Franca and Polignano, a cliffside town where you can dine inside a cave.

An eight-day cookery trip to Puglia ( 00 44 845 625 0445) costs £1,095 (Dh6,377) per person, full board, including tuition, excursions, transfers and taxes. International airfare not included.”
