“Hands-on” pasta cookery lesson

Morning transfer to  Gragnano where the ancient art of making pasta from durum wheat has a very long tradition –  started more than 500 years ago. Visit a pasta factory  to learn all the secrets of this pasta, really one of the best in  Italy thanks to the locally prepared semolina and spring water from the area,  slow-dried  thanks to Gragnano’s climatic characteristics ( much slower than commercial pasta and sun-drying pastas) and bronze die.  A ” hands-on “ cookery session will follow. The local ladies will share the best pasta sauces recipes  and show how to stuff  pasta with a variety of local fresh produce , seafood and meats.  Lunch featuring pastas the participants have helped to prepare will follow, accompanied by cheeses , vegetables and wine from the Campania region .
