The last sixty years have witnessed the miracle of the cooking of Puglia. In this region food was a matter of survival for centuries, as it was in most of the South of Italy. Today the food of Puglia is enjoyable and substantial.
Puglia is a fertile region. Unlike nearly all other Italian regions it is particularly flat and much of Italy’s wheat and other grains are grown there. The use of pulses and a wide variety of wild greens is very common in the cuisine of the region and almost everything is served with olive oil. After all, Puglia is the largest producer of olive oil in Italy.
Discover fish, pulses and greens cooked in a way you have never tasted before.

FEEDBACK ON MY CLASSES:
As much as I loved the food and watching it being prepared in front of me, I think the part that I liked most was the lady herself. Sandra is clearly a lover of creativity and style and she shares a special intimacy with her participants that makes her lessons very real and honest. Attending a La Cucina Di Sandra cooking class is but a small invitation into Sandra’s world. Go visit the Italian lady in her beautiful Richmond home and get a taste of what REAL Italian cooking is all about. Thanks Sandra! Bree (www.imageffect.com.au)
Before attending her class we had never met Sandra, but already we’re talking about how we can swing another trip to Melbourne. Sandra’s passion for Italy and generosity with her knowledge make this an experience worth travelling for. We drove eight hours from Adelaide to get to La Cucina di Sandra and it was indeed ‘vale la pena’ – worth the effort! Here’s all you need to know to book your own evening or buy a class for a friend. So go ahead – take a trip to Italy, if only for an evening. [Mary Louise (www.heartinabruzzo.me)]
