In a land of excellences like the Bel Paese, Cilento is “The excellence of excellences”: a cuisine that has its roots even in the Greek world, still capable of continuing the religious and philosophical traditions of Pythagoreanism, Demeter’s cults and the Eleusinian Mysteries.
The many certified products with DOP, DOC, IGP, Slow Food etc. today are the same ones that Xenophanes of Colophon, a philosopher who lived in Elea, cited 2600 years ago: wine, oil, honey, cheese …
The past centuries have only enriched the Cilento culinary tradition, now recognized by UNESCO: the Mediterranean Diet is “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity”.
Cooking classes are therefore one of the most beautiful activities to do during a holiday in Cilento, a way to spend a few hours in a cheerful and convivial environment and learn all the secrets of the food style that is scientifically recognized as an elixir of life.
