If you’ve been missing the flavors of the Amalfi Coast, I have some exciting news. The Mamma Agata Cooking School has launched a series of live streaming cooking classes direct from their kitchen in Ravello! Since so many travelers are unable to make it to the Amalfi Coast this year, they’ve created a way to continue sharing their love for cooking with people from around the world. Now you can learn the secrets of preparing local recipes, handmade pasta, and even Neapolitan style pizza all from the comfort of your own home. If your taste buds are tempted, read on to find out more about Mamma Agata Live!
Mamma Agata Live has been lovingly created by Chiara Lima, daughter of Mamma Agata, and her her husband Gennaro Petti, who has been cooking with Mamma Agata for 25 years. This is a family passionate about sharing their love for good food and its power for bringing people together. If you’ve had the pleasure of cooking with them at their school in Ravello, you’ll know just the feeling and how Chiara’s joyful enthusiasm bubbles through as she hosts their classes. Gennaro is your expert chef for the classes and also offers incredible insight from his extensive training as a sommelier as well as a cheese and olive oil taster. Together they’ve created online cooking experiences that are both fun and insightful!
So how does a live streaming cooking class work? With Mamma Agata Live, you’ll join a small group of students from around the world virtually to watch Chiara and Gennaro demonstrate a full menu of recipes. Even better, you’ll have the chance to cook along with them for some of the recipes prepared in each class. This is a great combination since you get hands on experience and feedback as well as the chance to learn a full menu of recipes during the class, from appetizer to first and second courses and dessert, too. (Private classes are also available if you’d like to create a customized cooking experience.)
Now … just what will you cook? Mamma Agata Live offers two Traditional Menus to choose from that cover Mamma Agata’s most popular recipes, including eggplant parmigiana, meatballs, fresh and healthy tomato sauces for your pasta, lemon chicken, and much more. There’s also a Traditional Seafood class as well as a Vegetarian option to choose from. Or if you’ve been wanting to try out making your own pasta but aren’t sure where to start, the Homemade Pasta Class is just the place.
Love pizza? Learn how to create delicious pizza in your own home with their Homemade Pizza Class. Trained with the best of the best when it comes to traditional pizza makers in Campania, Gennaro will show you how to make two types of pizza as well as focaccia and traditional Neapolitan fried pizza.
