The bread making class in Altamura will teach you the secrets of this centenary culinary art in a suggestive location. With your hands still scented with flour, you will go to the discovery of Matera, a UNESCO heritage site and one of the most fascinating towns in the world.
The meeting is at your villa, from where you will leave for Altamura.
Altamura is the town popular for its DOP bread, which boasts many ancient bakeries with wood ovens. Here the bread making class will take place: an expert master baker will teach you how to prepare bread and focaccia, two prides and excellences of the Apulian tradition. Hands-on, you will learn all the secrets to prepare these simple and tasty delights, so then once back home you can prepare them and surprise your friends.
You can also take home everything that will be prepared so you will already have a snack for the next day!
But Altamura is also a beautiful town to visit thanks to its historical and cultural attractions, so after the bread making class you can stroll through the streets of the historic center and our guide will show you the sumptuous Cathedral in full Apulian Romanesque style and the whole Old Town.
At the end of the guided tour there will be a transfer to Matera where a lunch based on traditional Lucanian dishes awaits you, a meal created with vegetables, legumes and cereals and a little meat. Lunch will take place in a typical room carved into the rock, with barrel ceilings, in the characteristic Sassi district.
Matera, European Capital of Culture in 2019 and Unesco Heritage, is one of the oldest and most fascinating towns in the world. In its territory, ancient settlements dating back to the Paleolithic have been found. The original core of the city developed from a series of natural caves carved into the rock, then shaped into what are now known as Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano. After lunch you can stroll through this beautiful town, visit a cave-house entirely and typically furnished to show you the customs and traditions of the inhabitants of the ancient Sassi districts; you can also visit a rock church, dating back to the eighth century, one of the most important and ancient in Matera.
