What you'll do

We will be cooking at my family home in Pisčianci, a tiny, historic village from the 800s. To begin, a short walk in the nearby forest and veggie garden, taking in the beauty of our surroundings. Picking a few ingredients based on what's in season: foraging wild asparagus, nettle or black berries, or picking fruits and vegetables - ripe figs, juicy tomatoes, ruby red beetroot - from the garden. Time to gather around the dinner table we'll start our journey exploring a selection of the best foods our land can offer. Learn how to make some local dishes - the menu is never the same, it changes according to the season, dinner will consist of aperitivo, homemade sourdough bread, a main dish and dessert. We will also learn how to pair natural wines from our territory to different foods. I will be guiding you through all foods: how they are made, stories about the farmers who made them and their link to our local food culture and history. All ingredients are either grown/foraged by me, or come directly from our community which includes Slow Food Presidia: from the sea salt in Pirano, to the cheese aged in natural caves on the Karst plateau everything is rigorously selected.

Alice

I have two main passions: food and travel. I am all about connecting to places through food and culture and by immersing one's self in nature. Ecology, biodiversity and traditional knowledge are important to me. I have a Master's degree in Food Culture and Communication from the University of Gastronomic Sciences founded by Slow Food. I have worked between London and Sydney and helped launch an Italian-inspired Farm to Table restaurant & market - Bellina Alimentari - in Atlanta, USA. After living away from my hometown for over 10 years, I am now based in Trieste, a proud mum and a freelance food educator and consultant. I organise gastronomy trips, I teach cooking classes, I write about food, I take care of my vegetable garden end enjoy cooking with what's in season.
