Torta-Making Class & Traditional Sunday Lunch


Spend an afternoon in the Abruzzi foothills of rural Italy and savour the ritual of Sunday lunch — the social ceremony that is heartily embraced by Italians all over the country and requires a large appetite! End this four-course cultural tradition with torta di ricotta pecorino (sheep’s ricotta-stuffed cake) that you made with the family’s own award-winning cheese.

  • Enjoy fresh handmade pasta and local meat from Ciociaria, the historical region of the shepherds
  • Top off your afternoon with a slice of torta di ricotta di Picinisco and a caffè moka, made with the most widely used kitchen utensil in the Italian home
