After collecting your ingredients from the garden, you will learn how to prepare fresh handmade pasta, seasonal vegetables and local meats, followed by the dessert of the moment. You will be able to taste your dishes accompanied by our organic wines.

From November to January, we also offer introductory courses in charcuterie to discover the art of prosciutto, salami and much more…
