Gastronomy in Abruzzo

Mountainous plateau, majestic valleys and picturesque hilltop towns, Abruzzo is Italy’s most stunning unspoiled region.

Introduction

Where better to learn the secrets of Italian cooking than in the garden of Italy? On this mouth-watering holiday we shall learn to cook some quintessentially Italian dishes, feast on an array of local delicacies and sample some of Abruzzo’s famous truffles, finest wines, honeys, olive oils and cheeses.

What makes this trip special?

Surrounded by beautiful scenery and in the company of friendly and hospitable locals, we’ll not only learn the secrets of Italian cooking, but we'll also enjoy a truly authentic Abruzzese experience - there simply is no better Italian gastronomy holiday!

Why learn to cook here?

The first half of the holiday will be spent deep in the heart of Abruzzo’s Gran Sasso National Park, a region famed for its saffron, cheeses and stunning landscape. For the second half of the holiday we'll travel to the Majella National Park, known for its bountiful supply of white and black truffles!

Where you'll stay

La Locanda sul Lago (Nights 1 - 2)

Immersed in history and nature, La locanda sul lago is located at the foot of the charming medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio. Originally the building was used as a barn, however, today it has been transformed into an enchanting hotel surrounded by spectacular views. The hotel also has an acclaimed adjoining restaurant, which serves the most delicious local food.

Each of the charming en-suite rooms is unique and a true celebration of rural Italy. The hotel has further rooms that are located less than a minute's walk away, in the village, which we sometimes use for larger groups.
