Hi from Bruna!

I love cooking, especially first courses, ranging from lasagna to more elaborate and sophisticated timbales, to our traditional Matera baked pasta, a truly exquisite dish from our region made up of local products, from cheeses to cured meats, and our beef meatballs. In my kitchen, I use locally-sourced products, working with dairy and employing seasonal vegetables cultivated nearby. Another element that never fails in my cuisine is the preparation of savory pies, influenced by my Neapolitan roots, such as Casatiello, and those typical of my region, like Torta Pasqualina, a rustic pizza made with shortcrust pastry, young cheese, salami, and eggs. Desserts are also indispensable, including fig jam, chocolate and almond tarts, and an amazing (according to others) Sacher Torte. All dishes are always accompanied by Lucanian wines.

We had dinner at Bruna’s house with her family and it was our best experience during our trip to Southern Italy! They were so welcoming and created such a special evening for us! And the food was amazing: typical local Basilicata food, Bruna showed us how to make the frizzuli pasta, authentic parmigiana and other lovely dishes! We can only recommend including a dinner at Bruna’s whenever you are in Matera!

My 3 children (ages 19, 15, 13) and I were welcomed to Bruna’s family home for a pasta and tiramisu making lesson. We found them to be very warm, kind and patient. It was a very authentic experience and we came away with a much greater appreciation for the country and its traditions. I would recommend this activity for any family also seeking a unique and authentic Italian experience.
