Cooking class

Come and discover all the secrets to prepare the typical regional dishes of the Amalfi Coast!

CARMEN - Food lover & cooking teacher I always have a great passion for good food. As a child, with my mom, we would spent endless hours preparing cakes and cookies with my “Dolceforno”, an oven toy.

Growing up I continued to cook as a hobby, I cooked for my family and friends, cooking always makes me happy! I graduated in Economics with a thesis on the safety of food, but I felt that something was missing, I wished to realize a dream: to become master of the kitchen! So I'm back to school, this time, my desks are those steel kitchen Gambero Rosso, used by professional chefs. A dream finally came true to become The Master of the Kitchen, I would stay all day in the kitchen, surrounded by pots and pans and all the other tools ..... Experiment no-stop and discovering new tricks of the trade, keep doing and trying and everyday is a new discovery and creation!

The right recipe? A lot of passion, a lot of determination, great sacrifice, a great love for food... so born Chef for passion!
