At novanta, we believe that food is the connector between history, people and nature. To discover a culture through its food is the most authentic experience possible, and this is what we want to offer you! 

15 – 20 May

Undeniably the most celebrated part of Italian culture is its food. Mothers and Grandmothers dedicate their days to creating it, recipes are whispered through generations like best kept secrets, and for an Italian … time literally stops for the golden words “a tavola”

For 5 days we will share with you every friendship, every lesson, and every secret we have been lucky enough to uncover in this beautiful valley. From organic field to table farming, wild foraged truffles and hand turned pecorino cheese, to pit cooking, open fire grilling and wood oven roasting. The passion, history and dedication seeps from the core of the people you will meet, work with, learn from and most importantly share a table with.

This is a cooking course like no other, and not for the light hearted! You need to know how to use a knife, be willing to take the journey from slaughter to table, and most importantly … taste everything! Do you think you’ve got what it takes to deserve a place?
