Truly a highlight in a trip full of highlights! We learned so much in this fast paced, lively, and fun cooking class. The chefs provided hands-on guidance for classic recipes. I consider myself a very good cook and I still learned a lot. Other reviews on this site provide details of the process. We enjoyed the communal meal afterwards, overlooking... More

We were in Positano for a week and took a couple of cooking lessons when here. Even though we both cook, we walked away learning lots of little tips and tricks to sharpen our skills. We made eggplant Parmesan, 3 kinds of pasta, and cream filled profiteroles. The recipes were all given to us and chef Giuseppe and Liuigi were... More

For 240 euros (2 people) you get 2 and a bit hours of fun in a professional kitchen with the most accommodating of chefs (we had Pepe) and hosts. Prosecco whilst you cook and once you're done you go up to the restaurant to eat with more free wine being supplied. They were incredibly knowledgeable, patient and taught us both... More

My husband and I went on our honeymoon and absolutely loved this class. It's only about 2 hours and they move everything along quickly so you are never bored. They teach you about 5 simple Italian recipes that you can re-create at home (Eggplant Parmigiana, pesto sauce, a basic tomato sauce, gnocchi, regular pasta and chocolate profiteroles). The people leading... More

Book a cooking class here - it is so much fun and you learn quite a lot, even if you are a great cook already. The staff is funny and helpful, and you get to eat all you made at the end. We even had a gluten free person in our class, and they went above and beyond to make... More

From the moment the class started we felt very comfortable and the staff (3) are very good. The translator , Rafaele , was very good and knowledgable about food in the Campania region as well as the rest of Italy. The chef was also excellent and he always gave extra attention wherever questions about technique and process were. In the... More

This cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip!The whole experience was so well organized and very hands-on from start to finish. The staff was great - kind, patient, and just wanting to have fun no matter what your level of cooking knowledge. For me, it was a very unique experience to make fresh pasta and to learn... More

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...
