Puglia is a food lover’s paradise and we look forward to making the most of our delicious daily discoveries! Come and explore with E.A.T and experience the many epicurean delights that this unexplored region has to offer.
PRESERVING PUGLIA WITH EVERYONE AT THE TABLE
Honouring a culture and a way of life one recipe at a time…
Preserving Puglia Cooking Workshop – Our most in-depth workshop where we explore the food culture of the south and spend our time with the food artisans and historians that are preserving not just recipes but a very unique way of life. The food we cook comes from recipes passed down to us from our family and friends and we have the opportunity to spend time with, learn from and gather around the table with these special people in the course of this hands-on workshop.
For seven days, we will explore the role that preserving food plays in maintaining the cultural identity and tradition of the people of the south. By visiting with food artisans who bake the bread, press the grapes, and tend their flocks, cooking communal meals, and eating in small local restaurants we will immerse ourselves in the connection between the land, tradition, and contemporary Italian food culture.
In addition to our many cooking adventures, we will also shop at the local markets, swim in the sea, picnic in olive groves, explore nearby historical towns, taste local wines, and share long table dinners under the stars all the while meeting new friends from around the world.
We hope that this will be an opportunity to take a brief respite from the daily routine and experience an inspiring, beautiful, and delicious way of life.
EVERYONE AT THE TABLE
We are Julie Marr and Francesco Creanza and we met in Puglia in 2014. Since then we have shared our passion for cooking and history by hosting workshops in Southern Italy, France, and Vancouver, Canada.
Everyone at the Table (E.A.T.) embodies our philosophy of sharing time, food, and stories around a table where everyone is welcome.
We recently purchased an apartment as well as a small parcel of land with 35 olive trees, fig, pear, pomegranate, and almond trees in Oria, in the Salento region of Puglia. It is here that we hope to continue sharing our love of traditional food culture with all who pull up a chair to our table.
