One of our activities for our 10th Anniversary trip to the Amalfi Coast of Italy was Mamma Agata’s for a day long cooking class and meal (see them at www.mammaagata.com).
We spent the day with Mamma Agata, Chiara, Salvatore and their family and staff and several other class participants in an Italian Cooking Class - learning to cook (by listening, watching, participating) southern Italian cuisine, while stopping frequently for each of a series (many) of courses of amazing food along with many (many) glasses of wine. We had a group of nine – so nice size as well. Great fun with a great deal of laughter.
Mamma has an amazing history, having prepared meals and worked as private chef for politicians / heads of state, celebrities, famous athletes. Some her daughter noted incl Bogart, Taylor, the Kennedy's. She and her daughter and family are delightful, and have a well-honed class and approach - you will be in great hands. We still prepare some of the dishes we learned there.
The property (where both the class and meal occur) is their generations-old family home on a terrace on a cliff top some 1000 feet above Amalfi and the Amalfi Coast, in the town of Ravello. Hard to imagine a more beautiful setting. It’s an easy ferry ride and then taxi up to Ravello.
All in all, a great experience, a great deal of fun, in a beautiful setting. So, yes, very recommended. See our pics on Trip Advisor and "www.flickr.com/photos/daviddmoore/sets/72157629698984230/"
