The passion for the cooking and for my country, combined with the uniqe place of a 18th century villa, makes the experience absolutely incredible. I love to convey the millenary knowledge of Napoli, about food, to my guests; all accompanied by the gaiety of a good glass of wine...

MUST DO!! give yourself some time to arrive at the location, but worth every minute. Emma and Francesco were the best hosts, we learned so much and had a great time.

My husband and I enjoyed our cooking class with Señora Emma and Francesco. The recipes were easy. The wine and limoncello was so good. We can’t wait to make the ravioli and meatballs when we get back home. Francesco was so nice to drive us to the train station since we had too much fun talking and we almost missed our train. 😆

This was an outstanding experience. The villa was impressive and very easy to reach by the circumvesivio. The hosts were great and the food we made was delicious. We are absolutely going to make this at home!

My wife was hesitant since she has spent much time in the kitchen. I kept telling her that I just wanted to learn some of the secrets of authentic Italian/Napolitano cooking. This is exactly what we got and much, much more. The host of this experience spent personalized time with us to teach, and then let us create much of the meal. Amazing experience!

We had a great night with our friends, learning how to make Neapolitan pasta and meatballs. It was very interesting learning their techniques. However for advanced hooby-chefs who know how to make pasta it was a little too basic. A special recipe that not many know would have been nice and maybe a little wine during the cooking would help ease up the atmosphere but overall we had a fun night! Thanks!
