Since I was very young the Masseria (old and typical local farm) were our “supermarket” where to buy fresh milk many kind of cheeses, ricotta cheese, “ricotta forte” (a spicy cheese from the aged fresh ricotta cheese) caciocavallo  and meat.

With my grandmother we chose every sunday morning a different farm in our area because of the different taste of cheese.

It’s the grass that animal feed and the air that give to the cheese a different taste</em>” told us my grandmother.

In this class we want to teach you how to do <strong>produce some of our typical cheeses</strong>: <em>cacioricotta, pecorino cheese and fresh ricotta cheese</em>, following the old methods and traditions in all phases.

In particular, from October to April the typical winter cheeses: <strong>pecorino and fresh ricotta</strong> and from May to September the typical summer cheese: the <strong>cacioricotta</strong> cheese. Despite the similar names  they have a completely different procedure and final taste.

<strong>WHAT WE WILL DO</strong>

In our typical house, a 5 cones Trulli, in the charming and peaceful Valle d’Itria (Itria Valley, composed by a very particular vegetation, Unesco heritage since 1996) we will wait for the milk warming to reach the right temperature. With the same slow movements of the ancient tradition, the dough will be “caressed” and “stressed” to obtain a palatable warm and sweet cheese.

At the end we will taste our home-made fresh cheeses with other typical products in a <strong>light lunch</strong> served with fresh white or rosè wine.

Duration: 2 hours

Beginning hour: 10.00

SOME HISTORY TIPS: The invention of cheese originates 6000 year ago. It was exclusively produced from ship’s milk, considered the best one for many things: not only for milking and producing cheese but also for the realization of clothes and mattresses.

In Puglia the typical sheep called “pecora moscia” was imported from Asia, millennia ago. It’s actually considered one of the best Italian sheep’s race.

Local history and typical food, traditions that we will share with you for a complete experience.
