What you'll do

The day starts at 9.00 a.m. with the meeting of the participants and a home made breakfast that we prepare to welcome you.
After the breakfast we will start with the cooking class, so Stefano will explain and show you how to prepare the various doughs and fillings according to the preparation you have chosen. Usually when you prepare leavened foods, you will have to wait a little for them to leaven. So in the meantime Giovanna and Maria Giovanna, our tour guides, will lead you to the discovery of the place that hosts us, the estate of Sa Tanca de Santu Ainzu. More specifically, they will accompany you on a guided tour of the Nuraghe, the small Romanesque church, the stone quarry, and the Fornace.
In the end of the walk we will go back to work and proceed to finish the preparations and cook in the wood oven the final product. Part of this product will be delivered to the participants at the end of the class, so you can taste and enjoy it!

Within the team, Stefano, together with the "tzie", takes care of teaching the participants how to prepare the typical dishes of our area, the Mejlogu. Giovanna and Maria Giovanna accompany people to take a nice walk and discover the beauties of "Sa Tanca". I, Alba, assist Stefano and the people helping them at the right time.

Where you'll be

You will have access to the manor villa of the estate. The estate has an ancient tradition, it was in fact purchased in the early 800's, by the senator of the kingdom Raimondo Garau, directly from the Duke of Asinara, feudatory of that territory, and subsequently handed down to the current owner. In addition to the villa, you can visit the Nuraghe, the Fornace, the stone quarry, the forest and the Romanic Church of San Gavino.

One of a kind experience in a superb location. Alba was so welcoming and treated us wonderfully. Together with Alba and Stefano, we learned how to make traditional panadas (some with pork and some with zucchinis). The instructions were vey clear to follow and the end result delicious! It was truly an amazing experience in such a beautiful location! Thank you again Alba

Der Kochkurs mit Alba war einfach fantastisch! Wir wurden morgens mit Kaffee und Kuchen so herzlich begrüsst und bekamen eine Führung durch das historische Gelände. Das Kochen hat sehr viel Spass gemacht und wir konnten definitiv viel Neues lernen! Auch beim Plaudern während dem Kochen mit den Gastgeberinnen. Ein Must-Do für jeden, der nach Sardinien fährt!

The cooking class with Alba was an unique experience. We had a chance to experience Sardinian cusine and learn to bake lemon biscuits and prepare traditional pasta from the region (cicioneddos). It was fun and very safe (we and hosts were wearing masks and disposable aprons)! We had a chance to have a walk around the place as well. Highly recommend this half-day activity!

My English friend & I wanted to learn how to cook a Sardinian meal, what we experienced was far more than that! We felt like being part of the company family and we made impanadas from scratch. The old mansion we had our cookery class in is really interestingand has its own charm & cozy. Alba etc made us feel very welcome and made they showed us every little step & did it with us. In the nd we shared a meal all together with some regional products (like cheese/sausage) and the Impanadas. We would totally do this again. If you not only want to cook pasta but experience the Sardinian homemade kitchen and the feeling of being in a Sardinian home, you are right here!
