Cooking & Painting Class Positano ~ 1 Day Class™

Cooking and Painting positano

Tie on your aprons, get cooking and learn how to make antipasto, pasta with sauce, a main course and dessert in sunny Positano. Learn cooking techniques and healthy food notes on the Mediterranean diet while you slice, dice and prepare a full course Amalfi Coast menu. After each cooking class, everyone enjoys the foods that was prepared in class with a toast of white or red wine included.  This hands-on cooking class features local recipes of the Amalfi Coast – Positano, Amalfi and Capri.

In each cooking class you will make regional recipes starting with antipasto: fiori di zucca ripieni – stuffed squash flowers, aranci, patate crochette, involtini di melanzane, polpettini di melanzane, pasta: gnocchi, ravioli Caprese and scialatielli, a main course: spigola limone, pesce all’acqua pazza, vitello Positanese, pollo con erbe, and limone and dessert: torta Caprese, torta Vesuvio, babà soaked in limoncello, gelato and crostate, based on the seasons.

You can also choose from pizza making.  Mix and roll the dough with our  pizzaiolo, pizza-maker, who learned to make la vera pizza Neapolitana, real Neapolitan pizza, in Naples. This authentic pizza making class shares the secret recipe for mixing, kneading and stretching delicate pizza dough and baking it at a high temperature in a wood-burning oven for a perfect crispy crust.

If pasta is your favorite, you can also choose out Pasta Making Workshop where you will make additional fresh, hand-made pasta with seasonal sauces. Fresh pasta making is an art in Italy, and in Positano you will learn to make it step-by-step! Believe it or not, Italy boasts over 1,000 different types of pasta, including gnocchi, ravioli, tortellini, cannelloni, orecchiette, casarecci, and garganelli, to name but a few.

If you are an advanced cooker or chef, we can offer the same Cooking and Watercolor Tour with advanced cooking classes and make it a tailor made menu for you. Just let us know.
