Pasta From Apulia & dinner in garden
You will be fascinated by the anecdotes about how my grandmother prepared the pasta and what the kitchen represented in the past and in part still represent. An immersion in the real life of Puglia and Italian sociology! I will let Elisa, my friend and precous collaborator as a super expert in the Apulian pasta, communicate with the gestures and with the example; she does not speak ehglish but she will always be able to communicate with the heart and experience. And once you will be at home producing your own good food, will be precious the memory of what she showed you. I will instead communicate, if necessary at the same time, in English, Italian and French and you will probably laugh at my flights from one language to another and my role as a "slave in the kitchen of Elisa":-) allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home. The wine, the foods that I serve together with the pasta that we prepare together and that are all local and largely fruit of my organic vegetable garden, do the rest. The lunch that follows is collaborative, all peoples help and, crockery and pans in the hands, all peoples invade my house too, with my great pleasure because this allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home. The wine, the foods that I serve together with the pasta that we prepare together and that are all local and largely fruit of my organic vegetable garden, do the rest. Other things to note we speaks also in english and french

Modella la terracotta al tornio
Antonio ha imparato a usare il tornio fin da ragazzo dai vecchi maestri di Grottaglie. Oggi è uno dei pochi in zona a saperlo usare con così tanta maestria. Inizialmente, Antonio ti racconterà la storia della ceramica di Grottaglie e come questa cittadina del Sud Italia abbia ancora oggi il più grande distretto di produzione della ceramica in Europa. In seguito, Antonio ti spiegherà e mostrerà il processo di lavorazione dell’argilla, fino alla sua cottura e decorazione. Scoprirai così le differenze tra le tecniche di una volta e quelle in uso oggi. Nella seconda parte dell’esperienza, potrai rimboccarti le maniche e, sotto l’esperta guida di Antonio, imparerai a modellare l’argilla al tornio per trasformarla nella tua opera d’arte. Nota però che l’argilla fresca non è trasportabile e, nel caso volessi portare a casa la tua opera, potrai ripassare a prenderla dopo un paio di settimane o fartela spedire da Antonio una volta essiccata e cotta (spese di spedizione non incluse nel prezzo dell’esperienza). Modellare l’argilla è un’attività artistica rilassante, adatta a tutte le età. Durante la parte laboratoriale, avrai tempo di chiacchierare con Antonio per fargli tutte le domande che vorrai e conoscere meglio la sua storia di maestro ceramista.
