Amalfi Cooking Class

Rating: 10 Rated 10 out of 10, based on 2 reviewsSee reviews

The most genuine and amazing Cooking Class takes place at the Lemon Garden, in the unique scenario of the typical lemon gardens of Amalfi. These are not "standard" gardens. It's a vertical farm, very hard to preserve. Terracing and pergolas built with chestnut wood of local forests, bees for pollination and honey production, pure and crystal-clear spring water... are all unique elements that contribute to make these gardens a great example of sustainable agriculture and natural engineering.

The Cooking Class is attended by not so many people per lesson and is deeply interactive.
You will have the privilege to cook (and learn how to cook) some Amalfitan traditional recipes such as:

  • pasta (you'll make it with your own hands)
  • the sauce (if you have specific choice, the chef is at your disposal)
  • scamorza cheese in lemon leaves
  • the "Eggplant Parmigiana", we call it "Parmigiana di Melanzane"
  • meat or fish according to your choice
  • lemon cake
The meal is accompanied by water, organic lemonades, local wines, Limoncello liquor.
Moreover, you will visit the factory where Limoncello and other delicious products are made, so you can buy them directly from the producers, at exclusive special prices.

But let's see in detail what kind of magic is the Cooking Class...

Amalfi Coast Cooking Class

We got a suggestion about the Lemon Tour with Cooking Class in Amalfi and this ended up being our favorite part of the entire honeymoon - definitely recommend you inquire with the Living Amalfi Team about doing that on your stay.

The typical products and fresh ingredients

At the Lemon Garden there is one basic philosophy: to get the most of organic quality and simple life. And you realize this from every little detail, just tasting the products made with Amalfitan lemons.

In this environment, the importance of bees is crucial. In fact, pollinating the lemon trees, a continuous blooming is guaranteed. Moreover, the owners of this farm produce a compact and soft honey with a fresh and velvety taste. Together with a cup of tea (or low-fat milk) and wholemeal biscuits or a homemade cake, this kind of organic honey is ideal for a healthy breakfast.

At the Cooking Class in Amalfi you will always find local and fresh products, carefully selected for you.

The Limoncello Factory

Each organic lemon is hand-peeled, this is one of the few secrets of a delicious Amalfitan Limoncello. We said "few" because it's true: the original Amalfitan Limoncello is made of: Alcool, lemons, water and sugar. Nothing else. And it's tremendously delicious! The only "secrets" are in the wise way the ingredients are mixed, and here at the Limoncello Factory you'll have the proof that the knowledge of tradition is terrific.

The Peasants' Museum

The Amalfi coast is full of stairs, this is nothing new. Well but, how the ancient farmers used to carry lemons from the top of their farms? On the backs of mules and with their own feet, taking the baskets full of lemons on their shoulders.
