Cooking Holiday in Amalfi

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s top destinations and it is a firm favourite with Flavours’ guests. Stretching about 50 km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast has the most breathtaking scenery and views to die for.  A meandering coastal road is flanked with lemon groves and whitewashed villas to one side and sheer cliffs that drop down to a dazzling blue sea on the other. This region of Italy is known for its superbly fresh ingredients, like San Marzano tomatoes from the vine and intensely aromatic lemons, its tasty seafood and of course, pizza.

The fun and camaraderie with staff and other guests was fantastic, not to mention the views! Our cook Rosa and hostess Antonella were delightful and worked tirelessly to make it a good holiday. They were also wonderful company.
