If you’re somebody who enjoys testing and broadening their culinary skills, this culinary Puglia holiday should suit you perfectly. I have found a great holiday package using a combination of Travelbird.co.uk and Ryanair.ie for two people to enjoy one week, mastering the tips and tricks behind creating some fine Italian cuisines. This holiday would be a perfect way to experience a new culture and experience some sunshine in the process. :)

One Week Culinary Puglia Holiday

You will be staying in the Ancient commune of Conversano in the pretty Puglia region of Italy. It is a small town that stays true to its Italian routes and will have you won over before long. Some holidays just see you planted on a beach and pretty much all you have to work with is sun and a lounger. This culinary Puglia holiday will appeal to all of your five of your senses. This interactive package includes the chance to partake in a three hour long, private cooking workshop. Here you will learn the art of Italian cuisine preparation. You will be able to pick up even more skills as you observe a live cooking show that will allow you to taste home-made Foccacia, wine and even more Italian delicacies.

The hotel you will be staying in is the Masseria Montepaolo Dimora di Charme which has a magnificent reputation on TripAdvisor. It has a rating of 4.5/5 from 93 reviews and has also won a Certificate of Excellence too. There is a very homely vibe in this accommodation and the décor is so charming. On arrival you will be treated to a complimentary apertif. Each morning you will enjoy a deliciously prepared breakfast and the cherry on top is a three course meal on one evening that uses only the freshest local produce, including locally sourced water and wine. This holiday really does give you a chance to enjoy a taste of Italy, in more ways than one!
