Welcome to the Queen of Chefs

A unique, dynamic and fun place where you will learn the majesty of the hidden Puglia, land of great and healthy food habits, ancient traditions and recipes that will enhance your senses.

With more than 15 years of experience, Queen of Chefs offers to all participants a unique chance to approach the original homemade southern Italian cooking. Regardless of the confidence you have with your pots and pans, our courses will intrigue you either for the genuine passion for food, for the curiosity in learning new recipes or just for the simple pleasure of cooking. In one word, an unforgettable experience!

A real hands-on approach in preparing succulent and authentic recipes made with simple flavors which are typical in the Mediterranean cuisine.
Queen of Chefs Italian cooking school will capture and fascinate you with recipes hedged in precious cookbooks written – throughout the centuries – by the ladies of the headmistress's family, who perceived the influence of the southern Kingdom of Naples and Two Sicilies until the late 1800’s. Puglia is the region where extra virgin olive oil was and still is the sublime masterpiece of all our meals, and where wine was and is the elixir of life. You will also enjoy learning the Italian dining etiquette and mise en place, a fun and exciting lesson on how to make your table and your meal look Royal!

Our courses are held within a 17th century countryside mansion “Masseria Serra dell'Isola”, built during the golden and glorious years of the Kingdom. Here you will experiment both the recipes of the noble families and the ones prepared by the Apulian farmers and fishers. All these recipes are nowadays the core of our contemporary cuisine.
At the end of the cooking course you will become the Royal Highness of your kitchen and will bring home a rich and healthy heritage: COOK, SAVOR, DREAM!
