EP 1086B - Pasta Making in a Castle in Italy
Join us for the ultimate Italian cooking holiday November 1st - 6th 2022 in Puglia, Italy! 

With this course, Drs. Mike Roizen and Michael Crupain, along with Silvestro Silvestori of the Awaiting Table Cookery School, the oldest in all of Puglia, have teamed to help you to learn experience the true Mediterranean lifestyle, learn the science behind what makes it so special, and hopefully add years to your life.

In the old world, geography drives cuisine and because of it, farm animals have never thrived in the Salento. With very few hills, there is no cooling air to console potential livestock from the almost Northern African summer heat. The flat, sunny fields have always been better suited for growing the world's most healthful foods--pulses, fruits, and vegetables. And lots and lots of olives, nearly all species used to make olive oil. 

So slowly, imperceptibly, over countless generations, loving mothers and wives figured out ingenious ways to apply their Italian culinary genius to the humblest of plant-based ingredients. Today this naturally healthy cuisine is considered by Italians to be the most delicious in all of the country. Silvestro has devoted his life to preserving this culinary tradition and teaching it to visitors from all over the world.
