Very enjoyable cooking class, lots of hands on experience with lots of instruction. We had coffee and biscotti when we first arrived, then we got right to work on the filling for the pasta. After the filling we went to work on three types of pasta which took several hours. We all worked together mixing and forming the pasta, they even let our 7 year old granddaughter work right along with us! We were then given wine and antipasto on the patio while our hosts cooked the pasta. After they put two different sauces on all of the cooked pasta we all sat at the table, including all of their family, and had a wonderful lunch with a lovely red wine. We truly had a delightful Sardinian experience.
I highly recommend this event. We were picked up in Cagliari at the meeting point, there was a short transportation to the vineyard. The vineyard lies on a beautiful hill with a fantastic view over the Sardinian landscape. The owner showed us the different grape yards and explained the process of making wine. After the tour we went back to the winery to taste. We were offered a variety of Sardinian specialities to taste with the wine ,the tasting was very good.
The cooking class was excellent! We were warmly welcomed into a lovingly restored traditional Sardinian house and made to feel like we were part of the family. We made three types of pasta by hand with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions in both Italian and English. When it was time to eat, we all sat around the dining room table overlooking the garden and ate sausage, cheese, and so much delicious pasta! I would highly recommend this experience.
Valerio was a great tour guide who picked us up from our accommodation and drove us to the vineyard, stopping en route to look at the flamingos in the salt lake! Enjoyed a very informative tour of the vineyard and farm before sitting down to taste some beautiful wine accompanied by an antipasto platter. Valerio looked after us well, even giving us tips on other things to do in Sardinia and helpful restaurant recommendations :)
Can’t recommend Valerio enough. He was really fun, chatty and lovely company. He taught us a lot about Sardinian wine and answered all our questions and even gave us some recommendations for our next stop in Bosa. Overall, it was really great to meet two lovely local Sardinians and learn more about the culture with the benefit of some amazing wine!
