Mediterranean Cooking Experience

Featured on NBC Extra’s Mansions and Millions, October 2016.

About the location: Sant’ Agata sui due Golfi is situated about 10 km from Sorrento. It is one of the “pearls” in the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, facing Capri. The site of your Amalfi Coast culinary vacation will be a lovely five-star relais hotel of only six rooms (and five suites) situated on one of the hills of Sant’ Agata sui due Golfi. The villa was originally built in 1892 for a rich German aristocrat as a luxurious residence. It has recently been painstakingly restored and is now a splendid hotel, complete with impeccably furnished interiors and a fine ambiance. There are also three recently completed apartments on the property. The facilities include a gorgeous 15 meter swimming pool with jacuzzi and sauna, tennis court, outdoor dining, wine bar, exercise room, and lush vegetation. There is also a charming cantina in the main building (complete with Cuban cigars) and an incredible wine cave with premium wines from Italy, France and Australia. The relais has also acquired a breathtaking private beach, with shuttle service from the hotel.

The Amalfi region is truly one of the most idyllic on earth. From the time of Etruscans to present movie stars, this has been area that has long enchanted travelers. Sundry excursions during this week-long Amalfi culinary vacation will take you from the posh island of Capri to the cobblestoned medieval streets of Amalfi and the other Amalfi Coast towns. An expanse of precarious road will take you between villages, running through lush greenery and vineyards nestled in the folds of the jagged cliffs.

What a wonderful time our group of seven had. The entire staff was warm, helpful and a joy to be with. Our rooms were very comfortable and the views were spectacular. The weather could not have been better. Since this was our first cooking course experience we were not sure what to expect. The chef was friendly, fun and a good teacher who taught us to respect the dough we had just made. We were his last class for the season and with 14 of us he really had his work cut out for him. He needed a vacation after us! The tours to Pompeii and the three tiny Amalfi Coast towns were excellent. One of the real highlights was our visit to make cheese. We were able to observe what day to day life was like in a working household. Her son explained how he was instrumental in convincing his father that if they sold their olive oil to area restaurants and hotels that their profits would improve greatly rather than simply selling the olives as a raw product. Having lunch there was like dining with family. The program offered a nice balance between cooking and touring the beautiful Amalfi Coast. I can't thank you enough for offering this very unique program. We all loved every moment we spent and please let us know if you decide to offer an advanced class. A true 10 out of 10 experience for us all. Vivian B., IL

Trip Details

Your 4 cooking classes will be held in the large teaching kitchen built specifically for your culinary vacation with The International Kitchen. It features spacious granite counters, a large professional range and an outdoor veranda, where you can enjoy a break between courses. Your Mediterranean cooking classes will be led by one of two chefs — or sometimes even both of them! Chef Giuseppe is a young but experienced chef; born in Sorrento, he was raised in a family that has long had a passion for cooking traditional Italian cuisine. He has studied at a local culinary school and has cooked in a variety of hotels and restaurants, including the 1-star Michelnin restaurant Il Buco in Sorrento. Chef Giovanni may be your second culinary instructor. He lives in S Agata and has studied at the local hospitality school. He also speaks excellent English, having worked for 1 year in Scotland.
The chefs will teach you such typical southern Italian dishes as Sorrento-style gnocchi, stuffed calamari, and Neapolitan-style artichokes. All dishes use the freshest ingredients, including the vegetables, which are from the hotel’s organic garden, and recipes that have been passed down for many generations. Your final cooking lesson of the week will teach you the essentials of preparing true Neapolitan style pizza!
