What an adorable family! I heard about this world-famous cooking school in Ravello, on the hills of the picturesque coastline of the Amalfi Coast, that got the prestige because of the adorable, heart-warming Chiara, “the chatterbox”, and her husband Gennaro, “the super chef” by creating stunning, authentic Italian recipes passed down from Mamma Agata. Not only is the food to die for, but the energy of the experience is one of my life’s highlights. If you are planning on a trip there, this is an absolute must! But it books out, so be sure to book in advance. I think with Covid restrictions, you can only book for online classes currently. But when things lift, I've been twice and couldn't recommend anything more if you're visiting the area after an authentic feed. Delizioso!

Chiara, her daughter, and one assistant outdid themselves with all the warm hospitality and attention to our every need. Chiara is one of the warmest and friendliest persons you will ever meet. She tells great stories, good jokes, knows the history of the region, and makes you feel at home. The food was delicious, the wine was plentiful and we even got cake to go. One of the highlights of our vacation. Do yourself a favor if you are near Ravello and make it a point to visit Mamma Agatas! You will NOT be disappointed! We loved our day with Chiara!! Perfetto!!

This was a first class amazing experience. I couldn't recommend it enough, not only for the food itself, but the people as well as the location.

Chiara is such a warm and lovely lady, she makes you feel so welcome from the moment you walk through. Her cooking is unlike anything I've ever tasted, 10/10.

Chiara will show you how to cook various dishes, where you get to sit down and eat them as a meal with the group at the end. Don't eat breakfast before you go, you definitely will not need it!

In July 2019 not September as below it dawned a magical day on the Amalfi Coast. The weather perfect it became a day to treasure at the Ravello Cooking school of Mamma Agata's. I had wanted to go for so long so my friends packed themselves off for a day trip and I had my cooking school experience. It was such a delight to meet Chiara, Gennaro, Mamma Agata that I had tears of joy. The day did not disappoint and lived up more than my expectations. The effervecent Chiara is the host who makes everyone feel welcome, important and special on the day. Gennaro is the master in the kitchen along with Mamma Agat and Chiara explaining and helping. The food was outstanding and so much so I am now on my second order and have made mamy dishes form the Cookbook. RIght now you cannot go due to Covid but they have live cooking classes. I will be back when the world allows travel until then I get my yearly fix in New Zealand. Stephanie WInchester New Zealand

A day at Mama Agata's with Chiara is like a refreshing drink of water on a hot day. She brings sunshine to the spirit and a desire to cook to the soul.
We started on an enclosed terrace with scenic overlook views and delicious lemon cake and coffee or cappuccino.
We met the other five participants and had a briefing from Chiara about the day.Some participants were seasoned cooks, others lived on take out.It did not matter. There was something for every level and delight for all.
Chiara's infectious mirth and outlook on family and life flowed through the day as we learned how to remove the bitterness from eggplant, what oils to use for various functions, etc.Chiara added the science behind the secrets which was an extra bonus for me.
Breaks gave time to wander the lush garden terraces.We had tastings throughout our time in the kitchen and at the end enjoyed all the finished courses together.
We had learned kitchen tricks, gathered recipes, made new friends and had our souls lifted.I left with an added lightness of step and a sense that more time in the kitchen might be good for what ails us all.

Best, most rewarding activity. We took friends with us that thought they would not enjoy themselves because this was a cooking class. Well, they have been inspired to cook differently now and have said it is one of the most cherished memorable moment they had in Italy!
From the moment you meet Chiaria her energy will fill you up and change your day. The calm presence of her husband Gennaro will relax you as he teaches you his many cooking talents and Mamma with warm your heart.
The view from there beautiful home takes your breath away, truly feel so blessed as to spent the day with you.
We travelled in September 2019, It COVID Tim so I now have time to write my review sorry for the delay.

The Mamma Agata LIVE Cooking Class is absolutely an amazing experience... Chiara and Gennaro provide a personal touch that you will certainly treasure. We have learned so much and have created priceless memories! The views from their garden of the Amalfi Coast are indescribable, they do a phenomenal job bringing a taste of Italy to your home!!! Can’t wait to take another class !!

I originally attended a cooking class back in July of 2017. I had found out about the school online, purchased the cookbook, and then waited till the stars aligned to plan a trip. July 2017 was the time and it was as wonderful as I had presumed. I went alone and was welcomed warmly by Chiara and her family the moment I arrived (a bit early). Perfect memories. I've continued following them on Instagram and Facebook and recently decided, during this time when few can travel, to offer some support while restocking my pantry. My correspondence with Chiara has brightened my days and my supplies arrived yesterday. Everything securely wrapped and in perfect condition.

I will go back but until then I'm happy that I can order things to have a little bit ofthr sunshine of the Amalfi coast in Pennsylvania.

I went to Mamma Agata cooking school back in July 2013. It was such a wonderful experience! Chiara, Mamma, and the whole family were extremely welcoming and engaging! The class was very informative and we ate everything that was made and it was all absolutely delicious,..including the wine and limoncello! The location is unbelievably beautiful and we got to walk the grounds and see the gardens and also take a lovely nap on the lawn. Overall it was a fantastic day! I’m writing now because since that visit I have continuously ordered Mamma’s products over the years! I use them quite frequently and also give as gifts. They are so fresh and quite yummy! They are reasonably priced and I receive them within a week of ordering - I’m in the USA! Mamma Agata is the best!!

My friend and I have talked about visiting Mamma Agata cooking school for well over 12 years, due to 'life' we finally started planning our trip 3 years ago. Chiara welcomed us and made our visit every bit worth the wait! It was absolutely fantastic. We learned so much and the experience it every bit as good as it looks. It's hard to put into words how much we enjoyed the experience, the smells, the tastes, the chat and... the view! Loved it. Thank you Chiara, we'll never forget our visit.
