Attraction details
Owner description: Spend a very personal day with Chef Vincenzino in Ravello. After many years as chef/owner of a restaurant, he decided to run a cooking school from his home, enjoying the people who love food, and "eat it with the heart and not just the mouth!" You will start with a visit to the little food shops located in the historic alley of Ravello, strolling through the pedestrian road that crosses the village. Along with Vincenzino, who speaks perfect English, you will meet with the owners of the small shops and be shown how the local people choose their fish, special homemade pasta, vegetables, and local and national wines. Together, you will decide what to buy and cook for your lesson. Then it is on to Vincenzino's home, gloriously situated on a clifftop 350 meters above sea level. You will proceed with the hands-on preparation of your lunch, from the starters to the dessert, wine, water and coffee included. Weather permitting, lunch will be served on the terrace to enjoy the spectacular view of the Mediterranean. The day begins between 9-10am and ends after your meal in the afternoon. US$210. per person, minimum two people

Our special day with Chef Vincenzino exceeded our expectations. Our day began when we asked for directions on the bus from Amalfi to Ravello, only to find we were asking for directions to none other than Chef Vincenzino himself. Imagine our surprise!

Once in Ravello our day with Vincenzino included selecting our fresh ingredients. Fish at the local market and vegetables too. Chef Vincenzino not only teaches you how to cook but he is also a wonderful tour guide full of information for Ravello and all of Italy.

Our entire family of three, me, my husand and my 16 year old son, each played an important part in preparing our meal which included an appetizer, primi and secondi dish.

My heartfelt thanks to Chef Vincenzino for opening up his home to us to cook, eat and live the life of the local Italians…the Mediterranean way!

Vincenzino's cooking class was one of the best, if not the best part of our trip. We had a class of 3 couples and everyone was able to participate. Vincenzo did a wonderful job of making everyone feel comfortable. We learned how to cook a mediterranean meal including sea bass, clams, shrimp, pasta, peppers, eggplant, and zuchini. Simplicity was stressed, but when the meal was complete, the taste was incredible. We were also treated to tiramisu prepared by vincenzo. I think I could recreate all the dishes without any notes and still have it turn out excellent. The organic garden where we picked our spices was very impressive. The whole atmosphere was wonderful and I am so glad we did this. To top it off, just before our class was over, it began to rain. Instead of sending us on our way, Vincenzo brought two more bottles of wine out and told us to stay until the rain quit. After these two bottles and ~4 more!, the rain stopped. It was a perfect afternoon in Ravello, consisting of eating great food, drinking great wine, and having great conversation with an excellent chef.

We had such a great time. From choosing the fish, to creating a delisious healthy lunch and eating it on Vincenzo's stunning balcony, with a view to die for. Then an amazing walk down to Amalfi which was just fantastic. What a great day.
