Tie on your apron with Chef Gina and learn how to prepare local antipasto, fresh pasta and sauces, main courses and desserts in the ancient city of Amalfi – just by the Amalfi Cathedral. Discover Old-World recipes prepared the Mediterranean way using local garden ingredients. You will be cooking local fresh fish, meat raised in the countryside of Scala, in-season fruits and vegetables from her Amalfi Coast garden. Classic recipes with modern interpretation include: antipasto, first course – pasta, gnocchi, ravioli or risotto, a second course and dessert.
Amalfi cooking blends a hint of influence from its past sea traders: Grecians, Arabs (who introduced exotic spices and adding raisins and pine nuts), and of course, Neapolitans. Learn how to prepare traditional foods, while learning about Amalfi’s historic past. You’ll prepare eggplant bites, stuffed zucchini flowers as antipasti, followed by rolling out scialatielli, Amalfi Coast pasta. Fresh fish reigns, preparing it lemon style or with tomato, grilled or baked. And, if meat is your favorite or vegetarian too, our Chef accommodates all. Dolce is a must and includes, tiramisù al limone, using local Amalfi lemons, semi-freddo, an Italian ice cream dessert, crostata, Italian pie and delizia al limone, a speciality of the Amalfi Coast. The recipes use simple ingredients and can easily be recreated at home. After your class, enjoy the wonderful lunch or dinner prepared in class. Toast with a great glass of Aglianico, red, or Falanghina, white, wine and end with a sweet dessert.
