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

We were fortunate to find Mario of Wagner Tours [--] when we began to plan our trip to Italy. We decided to end the trip with 6 days on the Amalfi coast- a great decision! Mario booked for us the fabulous Villa Maria in Ravello. He also suggested we take a cooking class with Vincenzo.

The day was just magical. Vincenzo's little daughter joined us, making the Italian experience complete- how better to see a country than through the eyes of a child?

As for Vinceno- he is a wonderful chef who guides you with charm and great courtesy through the preparations of dishes we never even heard of. Spending the time with him overlooking the Amalfi coast was a major highlight of our trip- which included Rome, Sorrento and Ravello. We enjoyed vegetables and herbs from his garden, seafood from the Mediterranean freshly caught the same day.

We cannot thank Mario and Vincenzo enough. We hope to return some time and repeat the entire trip.

If you enjoy cooking (or even just a fabulous meal in a breathtaking environment), I would highly recommend the cooking day with Chef Vincenzino organized by Wagner Tours .Vincenzino took us shopping for fresh ingredients, then to his home to prepare a feast. We spent the afternoon looking out over the Meditteranean, while drinking wine and making a variety of pasta with fresh seafood and vegetable dishes. Mario arranged this wonderful day - it was one of the most fun of our honeymoon.
