What you'll do

We will walk around the olive trees and – between October and November - we will witness the hand-picking of the olives which will then be taken to the mill to be transformed into precious extra-virgin olive oil. After the olive grove, we will admire the vegetable garden with its seasonal harvest. The day will continue with the tasting of our extra-virgin olive oil, offered with home-made bread, baked in the large wood-burning oven of the house. At this point, we will pick the tools and prepare together the best typical dishes of the Campania tradition, following the recipe. You will live your experience in a breathtaking location, from which you can admire our wonderful coastline and the green hills of Salerno! During the summer, you will be sitting in the garden, while you will enjoy the warm of the fireplace in the winter cold days and you can end your day tasting what you have prepared with your own hands, accompanying everything with the excellent red wine of our production.
Other things to note
In some periods of the year (between October and November) it will be possible to watch the olive harvest! In the other months, admire the olive trees with a guided tour!

Sharing my knowledge and my passion for cooking is a source of immense joy for me. Since I was a child I loved to put my small hands in eggs and flour to prepare the egg pasta with my grandmother for Sunday lunch.
Since then, cooking has become my main interest and I try to follow updated courses every chance I get.
I love nature and I take care of the family olive grove and vineyard from which we get high-quality oil and wine.

We had a lovely morning and lunch. Despite the dreadful weather ( Stefanie couldn’t be responsible for that) We enjoyed learning about her garden and the olives. The dishes we made we had for lunch were delicious. We are both good cooks, we really learned some new skills and authentic Italian cooking.

We had an amazing day with Stefania. She showed us around her unique property, told us so much about growing the different vegetables, fruits, berries, grapes and olives. The cooking in her outdoor kitchen - we can't describe it good enough, you have to experience it. So, next time you visit Salerno we highly recommend a day with Stefania and learn how to cook real, italien food <3

Stefania and the whole team behind this fantastic experience were an absolute joy. The tour and the cooking lesson took our breath away, a truly authentic way to experience the very best of italy. The food, wine and surroundings exceeded our expectations and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Just wait until you try the extra virgin olive oil, one of the best I've tasted. Only we wish we could have gone back for dinner! Stefania went above and beyond to accommodate us ... thank you so much !

The perfect experience to cap off a great week on the Amalfi coast. A great time cooking and an even better time eating. Also they were kind enough to pick us up right from the ferry. 10/10!

Completely magnificent What a location, wow!! We are an American family living in Naples and will definitely be returning for classes or to stay in the air B&B with loved ones. This was a beautiful experience with beautiful people, beautiful food/location! So close by yet I felt we were in Tuscany. It was a very special and memorable day with lay little girl and friends. We hand picked produce right from the vines and earth and learned to make some amazing dishes as well as handmade pasta. Perfect day, very relaxing space and great wine! I went home with wine and her cook book! We will be back!
