The Wine Harvest Day in Sorrento "was the highlight of our trip, Laura. We came away with such wonderful cooking skills and a real feeling of belonging to an Italian family. When I saw the long table set - I had no idea of the fabulous
food that would grace it a few hours later. We took pictures of our
appetizer plate. My daughter, Sherry, is still talking about the Uncle's brioche that was warm from the oven, it is hard to explain - but we had a lifetime of memories in that one harvest day ! Thank you : I enclose some photos."

"The cooking class “Simply Delicious™ Hands-on Cooking Lesson in a Gorgeous Private Villa in the Heart of Sorrento!” was well organized and the food was delicious!"

"My husband loves to cook so this gift was a special present for him on our 25th wedding anniversary trip. I knew he would prefer the feeling of being amongst a family and experiencing the Italian life as well as the hands-on cooking of recipes passed down over the generations. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we walked into Villa Ida.
The family was pure joy to spend the day with as each member welcomed us in their own way. The father taking us to his wine cellar was like experiencing a treasured art often disappearing with newer technology. The food was delicious (go prepared to eat a lot so as not to offend) and plentiful. They were eager to answer questions and visit about cooking methods and options. We were even surprised with a bottle of champagne and silver almonds to celebrate our anniversary! I couldn't have asked for a more special memory for this gift for my very special husband."

I wanted to thank you very much for recommending and making the arrangements so that my daughter and I could go to this villa for our cooking lesson. We had the best time. My daughter thanked me so much for the experience. It was our favorite day on our visit to Italy.
The entire family was so warm and fun. We will recommend this experience to all our friends and online as well. In the future, whenever we visit Italy, we will contact you to help with our plans.
Thanks so much and hope you have a great year!

Just wanted to say thank you for booking the Simply Delicious cooking class in the Villa.
The family were fantastic and the whole afternoon was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Sorrento. Was a highlight of our trip (even for my husband who doesn't like to cook!).
