Mamma Agata information
Mamma Agata, together with her daughter Chiara, offers private cooking classes in her home, producing simple, exceptional food using primarily organic ingredients. A one-day demonstration class culminates in an interlude on a lovely sea-view terrace, tasting what you've been taught to make and enjoying homemade limoncello . There is also a cookbook available for purchase.
Apparently Humphrey Bogart made a tradition out of having Mamma Agata’s lemon cake (made with limoncello ) for breakfast when she was cooking for a wealthy American family here back in the ‘60s. Other guests of this Hollywood-connected couple included Richard Burton, Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Pierce Brosnan.
The variation in price depends on the time of year.
