Choose a morning or afternoon cooking class when you book, and then make your own way to the venue in Capri. Meet your friendly host, a local chef from the island, and listen to a short briefing on what’s ahead.
Capri’s cuisine bears the hallmarks of the island’s historical Greek, Roman and French and Spanish rulers; as well the glamor of the Hollywood stars and jetsetters who have holidayed here since the 1950s. These influences, together with the island's abundant seafood, fresh produce and classic Italian gastronomy have made it one of Europe’s culinary hotspots, and are reflected in the dishes you'll be preparing.
Once you’re ready, set about cooking a traditional Caprese 3-course lunch or dinner. The dishes have been decided by your chef, and are based on recipes passed down through the family for generations, so they’re authentic, Caprese classics.
With step-by-step instruction from your chef, use the supplied ingredients to whip up a Capri staple: an Insalata Caprese (Caprese salad), the island’s world-famous salad of firm tomatoes, creamy buffalo mozzarella cheese and fresh basil.
Then, conjure up a Ravioli Caprese (cheese-filled ravioli), kneading and rolling out your handmade pasta dough to create your own ravioli parcels. Lastly, make a succulent Torta Caprese (chocolate and almond torte), a traditional Italian chocolate cake that takes its name from the island.
When everything is ready, sit down with your fellow cooks to savor your homemade creations. Chat about your dishes and enjoy a glass of wine as you eat and relax.
After your meal, receive a set of written recipes so you can recreate more Caprese dishes back home to impress your friends and family.
Your experience then finishes when you say goodbye and leave the cooking venue.
