This wonderful cooking lesson is held in a private villa with a warm, friendly Noble Sorrentine family in their stunning private villa situated on luxurious grounds in the heart of Sorrento.
The entire property is surrounded by gorgeous manicured gardens that include an impressive array of palms, English meadow, colorful flowers and fountains, including lemon and orange trees, a swimming pool, “Pergolato” and ceramic decorations, all in the heart of Sorrento.
Upon arrival your hosts will welcome you with fresh orange juice and a flavored plum cake. You’ll then join the lovely Angela in the kitchen to begin a unique experience learning to prepare delicious local dishes such and spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams), lemon chicken, eggplant parmigiana, gnocchi, ravioli or another local delicacy – whatever is fresh and in season!
Classes are based on menus of traditional Italian cuisine with a particular emphasis on Neapolitan recipes. All the recipes will be clearly demonstrated in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
The cooking lesson itself is approximately 3 hours, during which you will have a break to visit the family’s wine cellar for a taste of the family’s home made wine made with grapes from the vines that line the path to the villa. This is a very special and unique opportunity to learn about local wines and it is one of the highlights of the day!
At the end of the day, you’ll enjoy a delicious meal based on the fruits of your labor – by the pool or under a Pergolato or in a nice winter garden setting indoors near the fireplace..
