When I first visited our now best-selling Amalfi Coast cooking vacation Mediterranean Cooking Experience, I immediately thought the place was magical. Once I got to know the owner, Salvatore, as well as the chefs and the staff, I know it was a wonderful place that so many people would fall in love with too.
Experience a bit of that magic with some photos from, and some comments about, the vacation, including cooking classes.
On arrival: “We wound up the hill and approached the gates to the hotel. As we entered and made the turn up the driveway, my breath was taken away.” – TIK founder Karen Herbst
Of the cooking classes: “Love the hands-on cooking classes. The Master Chef and the Chef were incredibly knowledgeable and explained and aided each of the “students” as we prepared our delicious recipes. The kitchen facilities were modern and well equipped. It was so much fun interacting with all of our “classmates”. It was a “Blast”!!!!” – Carl & Mary of California
“The entire staff was warm, helpful and a joy to be with. Our rooms were very comfortable and the views were spectacular.” – Vivian B. of IL
On the Amalfi Coast excursions: “We absolutely loved Antonio and Rosa when we were allowed to help make mozzarella cheese and limoncello. Our lunch at their home felt like we were their family. Antonio’s father came out to the lemon grove and let us taste the fresh lemon juice with a little sugar. We purchased the olive oil and had it shipped back. It is amazing!” – Alida of Missouri
On the entire cooking vacation: “I have to tell you that I have traveled a LOT, and we have stayed in the nicest hotels in the world, but nothing compares to this. This is the rarest find, the combination of beauty, comfort and luxury, while still feeling intimate and quaint. Simply put, this trip was a soul awakening and filling experience… The most exquisite experience one could ask for. Everything, the accommodations, the food, the cooking classes, the staff, the wine, the gorgeous grounds and views, is simply perfection!” – Sarah S. of NY
