Overview
More
La Cucina at Gelso Bianco is a culinary school that is the culmination of several years of planning, determination and a pure love of Pugliese cuisine. We are fortunate to live in a corner of the world where the food is incredibly fresh and accessible and the recipes are simple but thoroughly flavorful. It is our dream to share this with you. Here in Puglia, local and seasonal is a way of life and as natives, we have the opportunity to introduce you to the region’s best producers and farmers. Cooking with us is not only about the finished product on the dinner table, but the entire process beginning with the land and sea. In our kitchen you will learn to create a variety of typical Pugliese recipes that can easily be recreated in your own home.

Charming and comfortable accommodations, relaxing atmosphere and wonderful hosts. My experience at Gelso Bianco was everything I expected. Our hosted culinary tour of Puglia was excellent. The normal traveler would never find all that we saw and experienced without the expert guidance of our hosts.
