    Neapolitan Cooking: Fruits and Flavors of the Mediterranean Sun

Neapolitan Cooking: Fruits and Flavors of the Mediterranean Sun

  • City: Sorrento
  • Duration: Approximately 4.5 hours (included cooking lesson - 3 hours)

Cook a meal with an Italian family in this 3-hour hands-on cooking class that takes place in a wonderful garden filled with flowers, aromatic herbs and lemon trees.

Overview

A real Southern Italian family invites you into their stunning private villa in the center of Sorrento to share with you authentic recipes just like nonna used to make! Local dishes such as spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams), Sorrentine-style gnocchi, lemon chicken or eggplant parmesan - a scrumptious, multi-course meal of whatever is in season at that time of year.

The setting couldn't be more special: the villa is surrounded by a gorgeous, manicured garden full of palms, colorful flowers, fountains, fragrant orange and lemon trees and a typical Pergolato with hand painted ceramic decorations.

All the recipes are clearly demonstrated in a warm and relaxed atmosphere, and you'll take a break partway through the lesson for a visit to the wine cellar to taste the family's homemade wine, made from grapes grown right on the property.

Then you'll sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labors in a delicious meal by the pool, under the Pergolato or indoors in front of the fireplace. This is an unforgettable experience that will be the highlight of your visit to Sorrento!
