Turn your day on Capri into a culinary adventure with our Food Lover’s Tour and cooking class with Annarita, our English-speaking guide, who will show you the best addresses on Capri for  food, wine and all things delicious, and a hands-on cooking class with Chef Salvatore!

Tour and taste your way through with Annarita including delicious pizza frite, arancini, focaccia, gelato, and even a shakerato, a  creamy Italian coffee.  From Marina Grande, to Capri and Anacapri, learn about the local fresh pasta, the torte Caprese, artisan breads, wine and olive oil produced on the island too with landmark notes along the way.

Following your Food Lover’s tour, we head to the kitchen with Chef Salvatore.

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.

Chef Salvatore starts out each day with a visit to his garden where he picks fresh fruits and vegetables. Signor Paolo, the local fisherman, delivers his treasures from the sea each day to the kitchen, and Domenico, brother to the Chef, produces naturally raised meats on the family’s farm.  Chef Salvatore prepares and bakes his own breads and desserts daily with delights such as the delizia lione, torta and limone Caprese.

Chef Salvatore offers traditional cooking classes with a touch of his own his own creativity.  After starting his career on Capri with his father who was also a chef, he gained international experience working with award-winning Michelin-star chefs, then returned to Capri.  His technique and approach to using farm-to-table ingredients are unsurpassed.  The result is beautiful food and high end wine from the family’s cellar to make every cooking class a one-of-a-kind experience!

In each cooking class you will prepare an antipasto, fresh pasta with seasonal sauces or ravioli or risotto, a main course and dessert. Following the cooking class, everyone enjoys the foods that were prepared in class at the family table with wine included.

“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.

Capri is magical in every sense and throughout time it has attracted emperors, kings & queens, and rulers from around the world. Dating back to the days of Tiberius, Capri was a stomping ground for just everyone, and today its elaborate villas, the Blue Grotto, Anacapri’s Villa San Michele and Piazza Umberto keep attracting the crowds. This Mediterranean island that has mystified the world continues to attract people from all walks of life. Tour the Island to see its vertical cliffs carved out and zig-zag turns that pivot their way up to Anacapri. Whatever your taste is, Capri offers it; from the quiet side of Anacapri to the bustling square of the main Piazza.
