Cooking at Casa Mia in Sorrento

A cooking class held in a private home in Sorrento. 

To delve deep into the local culture, there’s nothing quite like cooking in someone’s home.

Guests meet their local cook at the outdoor food market, where they can source ingredients for their hands-on cooking lesson. After chatting with the local vendors and picking up ingredients for the recipes, our local cook takes guests back to the kitchen for a private cooking lesson. 

Guests are welcomed by their host with a coffee before tying on aprons to start their special cooking lesson at the chef’s home, one of Sorrento’s most breathtaking locations.

Menus are based on family recipes, traditional Southern Italian cuisine, and local Sorrento specialties.

Cooking class students can experience a “hands-on” approach or they can just watch, if preferred. Special pizza classes can also be arranged. 

Our cooking class gives food lovers the chance to prepare and eat a traditional Sorrentino meal in their cook’s home, and enjoy a full lunch at the end of the class.
