COOKING HOLIDAYS IN CAMPANIA REGION OF ITALY
The Campania region of south western Italy is a great holiday destination, as it is steeped in history and tradition. Italian has become a trendy international cuisine and Campania offers some of the most mouth watering Italian food delights in Italy.
This region’s most famous gustatory delights are the delicate Mozzarella di Bufala (buffalo mozzarella cheese) and pizza which originated in nearby Naples. There are also many magnificent olives, olive oils, grapes and wines, a proliferation of fruits (especially lemons) and vegetables, as well as the freshest of fish and seafood from the coast and even wild boar from the mountains.
If food is your passion and you would like to learn how to prepare southern Italian delicacies, why not combine a visit to Campania with lessons at a cookery school, which offers courses in rustic and more elaborate restaurant type cooking? Our cooking courses are taught in the magnificent 6th century Fiacchio Castle for restaurant level cookery; and at Agriturismo Arenella for country-style cookery. Each course lasts for seven days and masters of the art of Italian cooking teach all the special techniques and also give instruction about the equipment needed. Students will have hands on interaction with the chefs. These culinary schools are available in April, May, June, July, September, October and November and the number of students participating in each course is limited.
Stay wide eyed for our next post which will delve further into the world of Italian cooking.
