We will start with a small breakfast under the patriarch olive tree, in an old countryside. Later we will go through the caverns of an ancient farmhouse. Under the centuries-old olive trees we will taste Matera bread and prepare a traditional dish from Matera, "la cialledda", which tells of the encounter between the typical bread of Matera, now stale, and the vegetables and mixed salads of the Lucanian land. All this will take place in a laboratory, at the end of which we will share this meal as even today the olive pickers do in their breaks. The cialledda will be accompanied by Primitivo wine and from the bundle containing Lucanian Slow Food Presidium products: Caciocavallo Podolico, Baked olives from Ferrandina and Pezzente salami from the Matera mountains. We will also be cheered by the sounds of popular instruments and the songs of the Matera tradition.

A holiday that enables you to savour the flavours, scents and sites of this wonderful area of Italy at it's best. I like giving my guests the best possible feel for Puglia where they can be in touch with the real Apulian life, meeting locals, admiring hidden corners and eating in selected restaurants where it's difficult to find many tourists with a guidebook in their hands. One doesn't feel like a tourist who is tramping around a pre-set journey. I'll take care of everything, including your accommodation, airport collection and I'll be more than pleased to lead you through a fantastic itinerary of discovery of the beautiful places, landscapes and extraordinary gourmet food of Puglia. Small group tour not larger than 6 people.
