Cooking Class in Anacapri with Francesco Civita
Authentic Neapolitan/Caprese cooking class
This is hands down the best cooking class there is in Naples, let alone the island of Capri! Francesco Civita is a Neapolitan Chef who has traveled the world and cooked in all kinds of restaurants in Rome, Sorrento, London, Warsaw and Naples and is also our founder and General Manager. 47 years old and with an international background he is a proud father and devoted husband. His love for cooking started at a very early age when he would spend the weekends in the family kitchen observing his grandmother and mother while they prepared the traditional recipes of the Neapolitan culinary culture. Growing up he was gradually allowed to join in and slowly mastered all those rituals that are the foundation of Neapolitan cuisine. These fundamental experiences combined with the experience of one of the best culinary schools of Italy today he can interpret our most traditional dishes with a modern twist.
It's all about traditional Neapolitan cuisine and lifestyle. This class is hosted in his family holiday home on the island of Capri. More precisely in Anacapri, halfway down the windy road that leads to the Blue Grotto.
Francesco is a fun and happy person that transmits his love and passion for food through his classes and his fun attitude. Everything will be made, hands-on, by the participants under his supervision. He strongly believes in teaching his secrets and applies his motto "you learn better by doing than just observing" so be ready for doing everything yourselves! Cooking takes time, so a delicious Neapolitan homemade coffee will be served before the lesson to spark up your attention! The meal will consist of some tastings of local delicacies before and during the class plus the whole menu prepared during the class; a starter, a first course, a second course, and a dessert, accompanied by local wine, water, and soft drinks.
Recipes and pictures of the class will be emailed to you at the end of the day.
Please note that this class has a minimum quota of 2 participants, for single private lessons please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you with the details.
