Daniela S.

Vico Equense (NA) - Campania

The first village you come across along the Sorrento peninsula is Vico Equense, located between the sea and the Lattari mountains. The most famous postcard scene of this characteristic village is the pink façade of the former cathedral of Santa Maria Annnunziata, built on a rocky spur overlooking the sea. Here you can breathe the air of gastronomic tradition, thanks to the fertile land the village proudly sits on.

To get to know and enjoy the products from this area, a stop at Cesarina Daniela's home is a must. At Daniela’s table you will find amusement, joy and curiosity and enjoy an experience that is not only culinary but one of local life. Daniela has always cooked. Initially, she cooked out of necessity. Today, however, she cooks out of curiosity. She loves discovering new flavors, new cultures, new ingredients. "Curiosity is the essence of life."
