Delicious local cuisine is one of the essential elements of a memorable trip. Puglia is a destination for all those people with a passion for simple delicious flavours and an interest in the provenance of food. The land is rich and bountiful, the 500 miles of coast offer a profuse fresh catch, and we pride ourselves in “zero miles” ingredients. Puglia has the soul of a mother. When a mother shows her love she offers food, and this is the Apulian way. At our Masseria Il Melograno our chefs are warmly enthusiastic and ready to reveal the secrets behind the perfect focaccia, tiny neat orecchiette, and traditional Apulian dishes. The cooking class is not available on week ends and subject to availability. It is even possible to attend cooking class in other Masseria in the nearby villages of Conversano, Monopoli and Savelletri. It is necessary to book in advance at the reception.
