Chef Andre will both entertain and teach you in a quick afternoon course full of Prosecco and laughter...with a ton of food at the end. We prepared Eggplant Parm (do you know how to keep the eggplant crisp and not bitter?), gnocci with pesto (all handmade by you), stuffed beef roll and an orange panna cotta. Gifts of a cookbook...

We wanted to do a cooking class during our stay in Italy and I am so pleased we waited til Positano to experience Buca di Bacco. We had such a wonderful afternoon. It was great to learn how to make the dishes from scratch, we also received a cookbook, apron and chefs hat to take home. Our glass of prosecco... More

Rafaele our interpreter and Giuseppe our chef were highly organized and good teachers. We made tomato sauce, pesto, gnocchi, home made pasta and profiteroles,... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time! We were lucky enough to be the only couple at the class and enjoyed chatting with the chef and interpreter. Our glasses of Prosecco were never empty as we prepared gnocci, pasta and pesto, and eggplant parmigiana from scratch. We got to enjoy the fruits of our labour while overlooking the water... More

We were on the Amalfi coast for a week and had booked in to Bucco di Baco for a cooking class. It was a highlight of our stay. We made heaps of dishes, having lots of fun. The 2 hours passed very quickly and then we got to eat our dishes in one of the best locations in Positano. Michele... More

We have been traveling through Italy taking cookery classes and this by far was the worst experience yet. It was not worth the time nor euros. A big commercial kitchen rushed with ordinary preparation and a giant staff with so so products. We just came off several cookery classes in Venice, Tuscany and Rome and sadly this one did not...

Our visitors rating is our best reply: Anyway we regret very much if this customer did not enjoyed our cooking class, we don’t understand what really was the problem and we will never understand why they did not open themselves to share and face their mind with our chefs. Opening a little debate it is a good occasion for everybody... More

When booking the cooking class we were a little skeptical about what our boyfriends would think, but we all had a ball! The chef, Giuseppe and the translator Franco were a riot…and they had a lot of patience with us! We learned how to make homemade Gnocchi Sorrentina, Fettucine with Pesto, Eggplant Parmiginia (my absolute favorite), and Tiramisu! After we... More

I was VERY reluctantly dragged off the beach by my wife for a "cooking class" at Buca di Bacco, which turned-out to be just fantastic. Our kids (ages 8/11/14) are big Food Network fanatics and so love cooking - this will be a highlight of our visit to Positano for them. Luigi and the chefs did a fabulous job, making... More

Wonderful afternoon in the kitchen with my 3 daughters, learning to make fresh pasta, gnocchi, cherry tomato sauce, pesto, eggplant parmagiana, and chocolate profiteroles. We learned under the guidance of Chef Andrea, ably translated by Raphaelle (who also took many pictures and poured prosecco!) Everyone gets a goodie bag (apron, gnocchi paddle, cookbook) At the end of the lesson, the... More

This was a very enjoyable day of hands-on cooking instruction, under the Guidance of chef Giuseppe, assistant chef Joe and translator Raphael. We made eggplant lasagna, linguine with fresh pesto, gnocchi with cherry tomato sauce and profiteroles. I leaned many Italian kitchen tips and techniques, which I'll take home and use regularly. The staff were very friendly and attentive and... More
