Ancient grains and tradition to showcase the land

The experience

The mission of Cooperativa L’Antica Terra is clear: preserve biodiversity and local traditions. Also, instill a love for farming which is first of all a life choice.
Einkorn wheat ears are visible throughout Brescia’s plain. This is an ancient grain which already existed in the Bronze Age. Fruit trees are grown to produce jams. These are high-quality materials from which equally high-quality food is produced. The selection and harvesting of wild herbs is the distinctive feature of this farm and a reason to be proud of for Elisa, a holistic professional specialized in natural cuisine and botany.
Under her guidance, we will put our finger in the “dough” to prepare the famous casoncello (traditional local ravioli). In this workshop we will learn to make home-made einkorn wheat pasta filled with wild herbs and grana padano cheese. We will make it, and we will eat it! We will enjoy our casoncellis with craft beer produced with einkorn wheat. We will also learn about other Antica Terra tidbits like vegan biscottis, herbal teas, sauces, ancient grain pasta, and flour. It will be a “natural” feast.
