Marina in Cucina cooking class positano

cooking class

Classes are a unique opportunity to discover the essence and secrets of Italian traditional homemade specialities; an exclusive occasion to learn about Positano local gastronomy, its ingredients and origins, and to cook them. Learn about cooking at Villa Cocles, the restored XVII hundred century convent in Positano.

My half-day classes are highly participative. You will learn how to cook Mediterranean dishes that have travelled the world. We will cook together amongst scents, flavours and good wine; we will unveil the secrets of traditional cuisine while you enjoy a delicious meal on the breezy terrace of Villa Cocles. Back home, you will be able to impress your guests with new recipes!

I strongly believe in the value of seasonality, that's why you will be able to cook different dishes depending on the period of your visit to Positano.

I really want you to enjoy your time with me to the fullest, so I will adapt my menu to any food intolerances and religious preferences, with previous notification.

Cooking class will thus include:

-Cooking activity in groups

-Seasonal and local ingredients

-Dinner accompanied with Campania region wine: Aglianico -red- and Falanghina -white-

-Demonstration of Italian traditional recipes

-Detailed Recipes

-Afternoon class starts at 5pm.

-Total lesson time (including menu planning, food preparation, and dinner on Villa Cocles terrace) is approximately 4 hours.

Friends or family members, who are not cooking, can join for dinner.

The recipes can easily be recreated at home.
