What you'll do

We will teach you how to cook typical Neapolitan dishes; starting from the way of making pasta at home; following with two types of sauce for seasoning the pasta and at the end with a second dish of meat or fish. All seasoned by the joy of wine! All together we will eat, if the weather is gracious, in the eighteenth-century courtyard.

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...

The cooking lesson was a lot of fun! The setting and recipes were perfect, and the instruction was full of helpful details. The conversation was great as well. Highly highly recommend.

The villa is beautiful inside and out and the hosts are welcoming and super friendly. We were taught how to make fresh pasta which we then made into ravioli plus two sauces and then a fish dish. We had never made pasta or ravioli before and found the lesson really easy and fun to follow. We sat outside in the garden to enjoy all three dishes served with a very cold bottle of the local Falanghina. It's about a 10 minute walk back to the train station, but it was a really hot afternoon so Francesco was very kind and gave us a lift. We certainly recommend this experience to everybody. Not only did we learn new things, but this was the best dinner we had experienced in Naples. The food, atmosphere, conversation and wine were all excellent. The hosts are very friendly and we felt very welcome.

Spending a summer afternoon in an fabulous location, with a Neapolitan family sharing their hundreds years old recipes it’s a privilege. Cooking together and getting an understanding of how things are done, the elaborations and the steps to build an authentic pasta plate plus the small tips inherited from generations are priceless. The food was delicious, was the best i tried so far since i arrived to Naples, i am taking home new flavors and textures and the desire to share with my family and friends this amazing experience. Sending our best wito Emma and her family! We hope many people to join this amazing experience! Un abrazo fuerte, Doina & Mario

This was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Italy! Emma and her family were kind, genuine and very passionate. We couldn’t have hoped for a better place to learn about the traditional Neapolitan cuisine and meet local people. We got to see their beautiful home and enjoyed the delicious food in the courtyard. We are already looking forward to visiting them in their B&B in the future. Please don’t miss out on this unique experience!
