Take a hands-on cooking lesson in Bra, the capital of the Slow Food movement. Decide on the menu, shop for ingredients and then cook and enjoy your meal alongside Maria, a skilled local cook.
Bra, renowned as the birthplace of the international Slow Food movement, is a pleasant, provincial market town about ten miles west of Alba. The glorious culinary tradition of Piedmont, combined with the regional food specialties that Slow Food has undertaken to protect and disseminate, make this the ideal setting for a hands-on cooking lesson taught by a local cook. Maria will invite you into her homey kitchen and share with you the recipes she learned from her mother and grandmother.
You will meet Maria in the historic Caffe' Converso in the center of Bra where, over a creamy cappuccino and a freshly baked brioche, you'll discuss the menu and decide together the dishes to be prepared during the class. Then it's off to the local produce market to buy the freshest, seasonal ingredients, followed by a stop at the butcher, the baker and finally at a specialty food and wine shop offering the highest-quality cheeses and small production wines.
After your shopping expedition, you will enter Maria's kitchen to cook a delicious, 4-course Italian meal with wine. This is a hands-on cooking class lasting approximately 2 hours in which you will learn the secrets to making a perfect risotto, and how to bake a scrumptious dessert. Then comes the best part - you get to sit down and enjoy the dishes you have personally prepared, accompanied by a glass of Piedmont wine.
