    Best Time of my Life with Chiara and My Family
    My family of seven booked a cooking class at Mamma Agata’s home on September 22, 2022. We didn’t know what to expect but when we walked in we were greeted with open arms by Chiara. Immediately we felt like family! The warmth and kindness was amazing by Chiara. The terrace where we were seated was breathtaking! The table was set for a king! We started by chatting with Chiara and got to know her like she was an old friend. I cannot tell you how precious she is. The elaborate grounds of her family’s home was incredibly beautiful. We were able to explore if we liked and we did. You felt like it was a dream in this amazing paradise. The cooking class was so much fun. We learned so much and had so much fun. This is a MUST DO if you want to experience the true Italy! We got the hidden secrets of cooking true Italian cooking. Each demonstration lead to a tasting. And let me tell you we ate and ate all day long. It was a full day of learning and taking in everything she taught us then eating every half an hour. The food was fabulous! We were so taken by this experience. It will be forever in our hearts. The best was that you can order everything she cooked and some. I already placed an order before I left Florida and received it so quickly I was able to try the sun dried tomatoes. I could believe the quality of freshness and care that was put in this little jar of succulent tomatoes. The best I ever had in my life! It was packaged with care. I also purchased tomato purée… 10 bottles and before I left the cooking class I ordered another 10 jars. There are so many products to chose from it’s astounding how they can all make it happen so preciously. Please do yourself a favor and order! They even sell jams! Chiara Lima I hope we can meet again because you are forever in my heart❤️. I love you and I cannot thank you enough for making my family and I the happiest time while we were in Italy. You are one of a kind. May God Bless You and Your Family. Hugs from USA! We will NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!!!! Love Carolyn❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    An absolute must!
    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!

    mamma Agata’s Organic Products
    My dearest Chiara I feel very spoilt today with including some of your delicious pasta and the ceramic spoon in my order. The products are absolutely beautiful and I could smell the oregano when I undid it’s packaging. Looking forward to trying the marmalades. The redness of the tomatoes is incredible and I know they are going to be so sweet. Mamma Agata’s products are simply the best, the flavour intense, pure and authentically organic. If you have not been to the cooking school or purchased Mamma Agata products, I urge you to try this wonderful experience in Ravello. Nov 2022 Stephanie Winchester New Zealand

This was a total wow experience. Upon arriving a little before 10 AM, Chiara greeted us warmly and introduced us to the other participants. I think there were 12 of us in total. We then proceeded to spend the rest of the day together learning all of Chiara’s special secrets to preparing some of the most delicious food I’ve ever tasted. The day is divided between step by step, cooking demonstrations, accompanied with wine that they also produce, and breaks between each demonstration. There’s lots of snacking in between. At the end of the day you sit down to enjoy a hearty feast of delectable food. I thought I knew a lot about Italian cooking, but I still learned so much. I don’t believe we finished until about 4:30 and I have to say this was a day I’ll always remember.

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!

After spending the day with Chiara at Mamma Agata's cooking school, my daughter said it was one of the top ten days of her life! And I completely agree with her. Chiara is the warmest, most charismatic person whose love and passion for cooking is a joy to witness and experience. We felt honored to learn so many of Chiara's cooking secrets and techniques, and we were delighted to eat our scrumptious feast in the most gorgeous setting with a spectacular view of the Amalfi Coast. What a true gem of a place and an experience that I would highly recommend to anyone who likes to eat good food, be surrounded by beauty and hosted by someone as loving and warm as Chiara and her staff. I hope to return again one day!

We spent a wonderful day with Chiara and her daughter at this amazing cookery school! Chiara made us feel at home and told us about her Scottish travels! She is the warmest, loveliest lady and we loved watching her cook. We learned so much from her and have been enjoying trying out all the recipes at home on our family! We also ordered some of her delicious produce and it really was a highlight when they arrived safely and so well packaged. It was a reminder of the fabulous day we spent on her beautiful terrace overlooking the Amalfi Coast! One day we will return! If you are on holiday in this lovely area we could highly recommend a visit-you will learn so much and eat amazing food!

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.
GO EXPERIENCE IT !
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.

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 !!

Words cannot describe the feeling you get while spending time with Chiara at Mamma Agata’s. It is simply magical. Her home , kitchen and class is perched half way up the mountain overlooking the Mediterranean Sea which is simply breathtaking. We were a bit early and we were greeted warmly and welcomed into her home for coffee and lemon cake… I grew up in an Italian family and it brought back great memories of my childhood. Warm and welcoming. The class is all about cooking with fresh ingredients and easy. Chiara is so passionate and personable with an amazing skill to communicate and of course cook wonderfully. As you take a tour of her garden you will see her Father still taking care of it as many of the products in the class actually come from her garden. You feel like family when you are learning as she introduces so many easy techniques .You are with 6 or 8 others who have signed up for the class and you get a chance to get to know others and learn how to cook together. While you go from course to course you are also introduced to wine to pair with the meal overlooking the sea. Does it get better than that ? In closing, the best part of our day was meeting Chiara as the world would be a better place with more Chiara’s in the world. My wife and I feel blessed to have spent a day with this amazing person and we will cherish our experience with her and her team for the rest of our lives. When we do come back again, we will go see and visit Momma’s Agata’s.
