Home is…where meals are cooked and shared”.
This is the philosophy behind our cooking experience, where you will leave Capri’s glamour behind for a few hours, emerging yourselves in a truly local experience.
The experience begins with a photographic viewpoint facing the Amalfi coast. Upon arrival at our “home sweet home” waiting for you will be a refreshing aperitivo of locally sourced produce, organic olive oil, and Ester's vinegar. Here we will discuss the hands-on activities that are part of our culinary experience. Our approach is “easy and homemade”,therefore recipes are simple to follow and replicate with the use of basic equipment and with the best tool on the market: your wonderful hands. The wine selection offered is the result of a meticulous research of regional natural wine producers. The outcome of ancient processes adopted by contemporary artisans who are passionate and respectful of their land and what grows on it.
During this class you will learn how to make stuffed Ravioli Capresi from scratch and for dessert you will learn how to make our family version of the Caprese lemon cake straight from my mother’s cookbook: La Cucina di Ester.
Our aim is to make sure that once you return home you will be able to find the right ingredients to create a great meal following what you’ve learned. We will end our time together enjoying your creations on our terrace with plenty of smiles and a giveaway to keep us always in your heart.
