If you are looking for an authentic Italian food experience, skip the restaurants and markets in Rome and head straight to the mountaintop town of Ravello. There you’ll find Mamma Agata’s cooking school, started by Mamma Agata, who has passed family recipes down to her children, grandchildren, and now you.
Mamma is an Amalfi Coast legend, having cooked for celebrities like Jackie Kennedy, Fred Astaire, Elizabeth Taylor, and Humphrey Bogart. Today, you might even catch Pierce Bronsan or Mark Ruffalo in her kitchen.
This full-day cooking class is the food experience of a lifetime. Accordingly, we recommend that you do not eat anything before or plan to eat dinner after. Mamma Agata’s house is located a short walk from downtown Ravello and has been in their family for 250 years. Getting there is an easy downhill walk, but that means the return trip is all uphill (mostly on stairs).
