We are fortunate enough to travel to Italy at least once a year, and our travels always include a local cooking class or food tour. My dream has always been to find a real Italian mamma or nonna who will teach us how to make her own favourite dishes using local ingredients and sharing a meal with her family in... More

We contacted Ciao Laura but had no idea what was involved. It was an amazing experience. We were met by Michaela who drove us to the local market where we chose what we were going to cook. He then drove us to the cooking school in a very small town where the class was held in a former palace. Ylenia,... More

As soon as we met Paola and Carlos in front of the small market in Trastevere, we knew we are going to enjoy the day. They give you an immediate feeling of old friends getting together, and a sense of their passion to Italian cuisine. The cooking experience itself, in the well equipped, elegant kitchen, located in a lovely piazza,... More

My wife and I set up a cooking class while we were in Sorrento. Luccia, the chef, picked us up in front of Hotel Plaza and took us directly to her unbelievable backyard kitchen!! The views from her house were absolutely incredible! Luccia showed us a few of her recipes that were featured in Chef Rocco DiSpirito's Eat this Italian... More

This company arrange cooking classes all over the region not just in Castalabate. My partner and I were staying just outside of Martina Franca and arranged to spend the day with Mamma Anna. We had a fantastic time.... She is a real character and we were made to feel like genuine friends... So welcomed by her and her family. We... More

Booked a cooking lesson here through Ciao Laura for me, my sister and my mom. A car picked us up at our hotel and deposited us at villa close to the sea. We spent the greater part of the day cooking, eating our meal poolside and drinking wine that was made on the property. The weather was perfect as was... More

My husband and I did the cooking class in Sorrento and I thought it was the highlight of a 3 week trip. We are both in our late-20's, big fans of food and know zero Italian. We were welcomed so so graciously into a family home where we truly became a part of an Italian family for the day. We... More

We loved every single minute of it and were sad to leave!   As part of our 20th wedding anniversary trip to Southern Italy, my husband and I wanted... More
