Your Best Holidays in Italy start here! Talk to your local experts on +353 1 2544280!


Live a fun activity steeped in culture and customs, in a real-family environment! Get to know the Italian and local culture through its food and wine; chat and have a glass of wine during the cooking lesson and relax while you dine. Learn the secrets of the authentic Italian cuisine and its genuine ingredients through these private hands-on cooking classes in Matera.

Mary will welcome you and your friends in her private kitchen where you will cook 4 traditional dishes that you can easily reproduce at home and enjoy the masterpiece you have just learned to prepare!

Once everything is cooked, you will sit around her kitchen table and enjoy your meal paired with a good wine. According to the most typical Italian tradition, an espresso will conclude this adventure.

At the end of the day you will receive your Italian cooking Diploma and a gift to remember this special experience.

- Classes are in English and hands-on, so you will not just watch, you will take an active role in making your own meal.
- Small groups of min 2, max 6 people (but we can arrange larger groups if needed).
- Morning classes start around 10 am (evening sessions can be arranged upon request).
- Recommended to everybody.
- Special classes can be arranged and menus for vegetarians and people with food intolerances are available.
- Usually the meeting point is Mary´s house, but, for a more comprehensive experience, you can choose to meet her at the local farmers’ market in the city centre to shop together for vegetables, cheese, bread…(additional costs).
- Transportation can be arranged.
- Lessons are in English, but if you know – or are learning – our language and want a fun way to practice it, our classes can also be held in Italian.
- For a complete experience and a hassle-free stay, Mary will be also glad to guide you through the Sassi prior to or after your cooking class!
