Join Chef Salvatore, along with Signore Lucia and Anna in our Cooking On Capri tour. Chef Salvatore leads in hands-on cooking in his Mediterranean kitchen creating healthy cuisine prepared with seasonal products and garden fresh produce. Tradition is key in the kitchen as you will prepare such favorites as zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta, hand made ravioli, grilled fish and chocolate Caprese!
Chef Salvatore’s Mediterranean kitchen is host to your hands-on cooking class, located at his family property on beautiful Capri. He will lead you through Neapolitan traditions with menus that change with the seasons. Tie on your apron and roll out ravioli capresi, prepare pesce al limone, torta caprese, and limoncello in an authentic hands-on experience featuring the cuisine and splendor of Capri. Special menu requests like gluten free or vegetarian are available.
Salvatore starts out each day with a visit to his garden where he picks fresh fruits and vegetables. Signor Paolo the local fisherman brings his treasures from the sea each day, frattello Domenico produces naturally raised meats on the family’s farm, while the oven is hot baking island favorite desserts like delizia, torta and limone Caprese.
In each cooking class you will prepare an appetizer, pasta or ravioli or risotto, main course and dessert. Following the cooking class, everyone enjoys the foods that were prepared in class at the family table. Toast with a glass of wine, and end with a sweet Capri dessert!
“I don’t measure, I use my eyes, except in dessert making where precision is important,” he tells in a Neapolitan dialect. At sunrise he is out in the garden picking fresh mint, rosemary and giant yellow zucchini flowers. His Mediterranean garden is flowering with spring peas to poppies, summer roses and lavender, zucchini and eggplant, black cherries, oranges and lemons. “What’s in our garden is on our table,” he explains.
The hands-on Cooking Class begins at 10am or 4pm. Lunch or dinner follows and includes the food that was made in the cooking class. A toast of local red or white wine and recipe booklet included.
