Detailed Itinerary

5PM | Depart from Sorrento and Welcoming Cocktail

One of our professional and English speaking drivers will collect you from your accommodation or hotel at 5pm and take you to the picturesque villa immersed in nature where your experience will begin, the total journey will be 30 minutes from Sorrento centre. The private car is fully equipped with all of the optimum comforts including air conditioning, all included within the experience. Upon arrival you will be welcomed with a cocktail and begin a tour of the land and have the chance to pick the fresh seasonal ingredients such as vegetables and fruit, then the start of your Italian cooking classes will begin. Although we would usually start with the appetisers first, as the dessert will be a classic Tiramisù in this case it will need to be prepared first in order to allow it enough time to set in the fridge which usually takes a couple of hours. The process of making a Tiramisù is very simple and a great chance for the children to get involved where they can help to soak the sponge fingers in the coffee and milk and begin assembling the layers, then topping with fresh Mascarpone cream cheese and chocolate dusting once all layers are complete.

Will, January 2020

This cooking class was amazing! Would definitely recommend. Cristiano is a wonderful host and will have you over to his grandmothers beautiful villa that overlooks the bay to cook some delicious Italian food.  We started with some champagne and then dove into the cooking, cooking three courses. We made eggplant Parmesan, Gnocci and tiramisu! All three were amazing!! And then you get to keep the recipes and take them home with you, so that’s cool too.  Overall great experience. Cristiano is very friendly and knowledgeable. Him and his sister will make you feel right at home.

This was by far one of the best experiences in Italy I had the pleasure of attending. It was a last minute booking because of the rainy weather, but I’m so happy I did. The The sunset views and the atmosphere was belissimo. We made everything from scratch and used the freshest ingredients from their own garden and local market. The 3 course meal was so delicious! I wish I had a to go box for dessert (tiramisu) since the gnocchi and eggplant parmesan filled my belly. It’s my favorite dessert! I loved learning all the local history and family cooking tips and secrets. I highly recommend this experience to an expensive dinner. I’m excited to make these dishes at home.

I took this cooking class with A few friends and had the most amazing time!!! Not only was the instructor, Cristiano friendly and caring but he also really knows what he’s doing! He went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience, which we did! We made gnocchi from scratch, eggplant parmigiana (mozzarella cheese made from scratch by a member of his family-beyond delicious!) and tiramisu!! Cristiano made each step fun and creative! The location is beautiful and the supplies and ingredients are clean and aesthetically pleasing. I would highly highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!
