Holiday Itinerary

Make the most of your trip to Sorrento and Italy’s Amalfi Coast by adding this fun, informative cooking class located in the village of Sant’Agnello, just 10 minutes from the centre of Sorrento.

During this hands-on Italian cookery lesson, you’ll prepare a carefully thought out 4 course menu cooking classic Italian dishes such as delicious appetizers, homemade pasta or gnocchi, fish dishes and desserts like Tiramisu.

Daily menus are based on local Mediterranean cuisine using locally sourced and, where possible, organic produce and will vary depending on the season. After your cooking lesson, you’ll sit down together and enjoy the wonderful meal you have prepared with local wine and real Italian coffee.

The cookery school is located just a stone’s throw from the sea in the grounds of a beautiful hotel resort surrounded by fragrant lemon and orange groves offering an oasis of peace and relaxation.
Take home not only the skills to recreate the dishes back home to impress your friends, but also great memories of your time in Sorrento.
