  • Eggplant meatballs
  • Scialatielli with zucchini and courgette flowers
  • My pastiera in a glass

Transforming the dish into a painting is an easy objective for those who love to cook and put their passion throughout the preparation.

To transform a dish into an impressionist painting, full of natural and never dull colors, you have to choose fresh ingredients and cook them in the most suitable way so that they do not lose their tones and nuances. Nature is the color palette and you will be the painters. The aubergine will be the purple, tomato the red, basil the green, the green and yellow of the courgettes and their flowers and all the spring colors of the pastiera. The plate will be the canvas: all you have to do is start painting!

Premetto che io ho partecipato a questa esperienza ignara di cosa si trattasse essendo un regalo per mia mamma, ma si è rivelata un’esperienza bellissima. Emanuela ci ha fatto sentire parte della sua vita e famiglia per l’accoglienza, i sorrisi e la disponibilità. La location è da sogno. Mamma ed io abbiamo imparato ricette nuove ed abbiamo aggiunto segreti a quelle che già conoscevamo. Non volevamo più andarcene talmente siamo state bene. Emanuela ha permesso a mia mamma di cucinare un piatto fuori programma e le siamo molto grate. Un esperienza che pochi napoletani concepiscono e capiscono ma credetemi non bisogna mai dare niente per scontato. Grazie Emanuela per tutto!

Siamo stati a casa di Emanuela, una serata molto piacevole trascorsa a chiacchierare sulla terrazza di questa meravigliosa casa con una vista su Napoli spettacolare. Buon cibo tradizionale accompagnato da buon vino e soprattutto dalla gentilezza, disponibilità e passione per la cucina della tradizione di Emanuela e Maurizio. Ci siamo sentiti a casa, una piacevole scoperta ed una bellissima esperienza. Complimenti

This was such an amazing experience. My clients had so much fun and learned so much. Emanuela and her husband were great hosts making everything very easy to learn. Might I add the food was AMAZING! I will definitely suggest this to my clients moving forward.

We had a great time with Emanuela who was very friendly and a very good teacher. The recipes were typical Italian and easy to try after I return home. Besides the great company and dinner from our lesson, there is also a great view of Naples as a bonus.

We had a lovely evening cooking and eating with Emanuela and her husband. The view of Naples was a beautiful backdrop for the Mozzarella en carrozza, Ravioli al Formaggio with fresh tomato sauce, pasta with butter and sage and limoncello tiramisu. For years I have wanted to go into a real Italian kitchen to learn to cook local dishes-mission accomplished!! Thank you Emanuela!

Cesarina from 2018Location: Naples    Languages: Italian and English
Nestled in the gulf, Naples wakes up to views of its splendid sea every day. The same sea which the large, green balcony of our Cesarina's house overlooks, and which offers a breathtaking panorama.

The house where Emanuela is hosting us is spacious, furnished with traditional, refined in taste and flooded with light. Emanuela’s passion for the culinary arts goes back to when she was still a small child, peeking into “mama’s" kitchen. Our Cesarina is a clever mosaic: her intuition for the accompaniments and perfect combinations has made her an expert ​​in the art of preparing good food. Flavors and fragrances are skillfully put together to tell the history and traditions of her region.
