I will take you on a journey filled with unforgettable aromas and flavors. Together, we will create three desserts from the ancient Neapolitan tradition, recipes passed down from generation to generation that we will prepare using local dairy products and homemade candied fruits made strictly from Sorrento citrus. I will teach you how to make Neapolitan Pastiera (and share its origins), Shortcrust Sfogliatelle, and finally, the "Deliziose" featuring ricotta, chocolate, and hazelnut crumbs.

We had the most wonderful time baking Napoletan pastries with Clara! She is a very good teacher, and we learned so much. She was patient when we were a little late, and was very hospitable in welcoming us to her wonderful home. The pastries tasted so delicious. We are so happy we took the class, and highly recommend it to everyone. We hope to make the same pastries for friends and family back home. Grazie, Clara!

We were not sure what to expect from this experience, but Clara exceeded beyond what we could imagine! We learned so much and she was so helpful. She welcomed us into her home and treated us like family. The recipes were simple and delicious. The food we made was our favorite meal while here in Italy. It was very nice having conversation and learning about Italian and Sorrento culture. Would definitely recommend. We had an amazing time!

Cooking lessons with Clara was a great experience! Boutique style lessons in her lovely home with her 2 beautiful twins helping to make the night special. It is quite different to the standard lessons where you are in a restaurant or facility and we loved it. Would suit a small group, the cooking was fun and the meals prepared were delicious. We love cooking Italian and learnt some real Italian style tips and ingredients to the normal. We also ended up learning a lot of italian language as well as they spoke English very well but also taught us Italian 🇮🇹Thank you Clara again for your hospitality. Can't wait to go home and cook gnochi and tiramisu for our family's 🤤🤤

My name is Clara, born in Paris to Campanian parents. I lived in Sorrento until the age of 18, and then I traveled around the world for work. I immediately fell in love with trying international and multicultural cuisine, and while working on cruise ships as a hotel manager, I learned firsthand how to navigate large kitchens on 4-star floating hotels. It was there that my passion for pastry also emerged, leading me to deepen my studies at Compait and attend various courses for artisan bread-making. I greatly enjoy teaching what has always been a profound passion of mine. My specialties undoubtedly include desserts, artisan bread, basic pastry, and the traditional sweets of my region. Pastiera, sfogliatelle, and other delights. I also love making pizza and fresh pasta with great enthusiasm.
