Secret Garden Positano

October 2008

My October visit was a dream come true — after only a week in Positano I felt like I’d fully experienced the heart and soul of the beautiful Amalfi Coast — which has got to be one of the most rejuvenating, peaceful places on earth. The cooking classes — from Mamma Rosa joyfully making mozzorella, followed by her son walking us through the family lemon groves, to chefs at Positano’s most popular restaurants teaching me how to make pizza and prepare their fresh caught fish — were a revelation. Add to that a visit to Amalfi where the church bells rang for a solid 10 minutes as I sat overlooking the main square before tasting fantastic homemade pasta. And to seal the wonderful deal were my accommodations, with my very own terrace and view of the placid sea to calm every nerve, along with access to a private beach where the snack bar serves fantastic gnocchi. I can not wait to return!
