Without reservation, I whole-heartedly recommend Stile Mediterraneo. In late October, I had a great time at two cooking classes. But, I emphasis that it went beyond just a lot of fun----I felt like I had a “real” Puglian experience. And, I definitely gained a fond memory. Classes are held in an authentic palazzo, which in and of itself felt “just... More

We recently spent 5 days with Cinzia and Marika at Stile Mediterraneo, and the experience could not have been better. The two women generously shared their knowledge of the traditional, regional ways of cooking, passed down through generations. The excursions led by Cinzia were incredible – the fish markets and beach in Gallipoli, an olive oil plantation and factory for... More

I have traveled throughout Italy many times but July 2011 was my first visit to Puglia and my first cooking school experience abroad. Because of Cinzia and Marika the charming, generous, and exceptional instructors, I had a most memorable experience. The cooking classes and recipes will suit everyone from beginners to amateur chefs. The small number of students in the... More

Cinzia and Marika are wonderful culinary and cultural teachers. We enjoyed learning to make orecchiette pasta by hand, as well as stuffed calimari and amazing ricotta cake, all with fresh ingredients from the immediate area. After our private cooking lesson, we all sat down to a fabulous dinner that we made, complete with delicious local wines. The cooking school is... More
