If you are looking for an experience that combines local cuisine and tradition, then you can live it with the Teatro Povero community cooperative. A few km from Monticchiello, you will have the opportunity to visit a typical mill of the Val d’Orcia, witnessing the grinding of the flour and the production of the traditional bronze-drawn pasta. Here the family-run Mulino Val d’Orcia company in Spedaletto has been producing organically since 1992 and has passed down ancient knowledge and respect for our land for generations.
Once the visit is over, we are waiting for you in Monticchiello to live a unique culinary experience. You will be able to choose whether to cook the famous pici of the local tradition with us, testing yourself in the preparation of the condiments and then tasting the delicacies that have been prepared, or attend a Show Cooking on the flours of Ancient Grains, in which you will be able to rediscover the flavors and traditional recipes of the past and the healthiest, genuine and natural products.
The Cooking class package includes:
- guided tour of the mill in Val d’Orcia (transport not included)
- Cooking class: preparation of pici and condiments such as garlic, the typical Val d’Orcia condiment with tomato and garlic, crumbs, directly from the poorest peasant tradition, and cacio e pepe with a more intense flavour. Our chefs will tell you the secrets of traditional recipes and will put you to the test by making you work with your hands in the dough. At the end you will be able to taste the dish you have prepared and you will be the “judge” of yourself!
- lunch or dinner with what has been cooked, drinks included
- recipe book
- free pack of pasta
