    Lovely cooking experience

    Rocco and Carla were a lovely couple with rich family history! Making tiramisu and homemade pasta while sampling their homemade wine in their home was an authentic wonderful experience! Truly appreciated their time experience and inviting me into their home !

    Having an authentic Italian meal in someone's home with vegetables from their own garden. Also, Rocco and Carla were extremely hospitable with a good sense of humor.
    Cooking with New Friends Rocco and Carla - a Brief Look into the life in the Amalfi!
    Sunny_B, Mar 2023
    What a fantastic day we had with Rocco and Carla. They hosted us in their beautiful garden in Praiano. I am so glad we went because I had not heard of Praiano and would not have taken the time to visit. The village itself is stunning and quaint with sweeping views of the sea. Rocco grew up in the area and he and his family grow the food and make the wine we enjoy on the visit. His lovely wife Carla is the Chef extraordinaire who makes EVERYTHING from scratch. My favorite part of the day is seeing her "doing it all" hanging the wash to dry as we walk up, soothing young Alexandro their adorable toddler (who will no doubt be hosting these events in a year or two), and having the patience of a saint as we endeavor to make pasta with her. Both Rocco and Carla are born hosts and have a passion for the Mediterranean Diet and healthy cooking (but you would never know it was healthy with how delicious the food tastes). I have done several cooking classes in my various visits to Italy/Greece, but this is the most "real" or as they said "It is our normal life". I especially appreciated that Carla was able to make allowances for my food allergies so I could enjoy the meal fully as well. If you want to have a true taste of living in the Amalfi Coast and all that is good about it - you will want to take this class.
    Amazing experience
    Antoinette_A, Aug 2022
    This cooking class was amazing! We really had the best time and made some amazing food. Rocco and Carla are very sweet people with a lovely experience to offer. I personally don’t like eggplant but the stuffed eggplant we made was out of this world!! I would eat it every day. She shows you how to make 4 different styles of pasta. You can taste the freshness in every bite. It’s all picked and grown right from the garden where you take the class. My only advice is take a taxi or your rental car there. We took the bus and it was confusing to find. But they stayed in touch and met me right away when I shared my location. Don’t pass this authentic class up.
    Our favourite honeymoon activity

    This was our favourite activity we did on holiday. The setting was beautiful, everything was grown in Rocco and Carla's garden, it was delicious and the wine was great! Would love to come back again!
