Just wanted to say thank you for such a lovely day on Tuesday, Jackie and I both thoroughly enjoyed it and especially eating the finished results! I am sure you will make a great success of it. Please let me know about making Panettone at Christmas as I would definitely love to do that. (Sarah)
Thank you so much for today. You gave my friends and I a warm welcome into your lovely home, with scones, cream and a cappuccino overlooking the beautiful reservoir.
Making the ravioli was so much fun, under your careful and patient instructions. It is a real craft shaping the ravioli, but under your tutelage the results were amazing.
We enjoyed a few laughs and a prosecco or two, before dining on our creation, served with a simple sauce which tasted delicious. We even had a bit left over for a doggie bag to take home to the chaps.
A really enjoyable day was had by all and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to my friends. (Caroline)
Ciao Carmela. Thank you for a great course. We both enjoyed it. (R.)
“It was a delight to book on an Italian Cookery Course with Carmela, a real authentic experience using quality ingredients, a lot of which was home grown and picked just prior to using in her garden overlooking the lake. This gave a true insight into Italian cuisine, fresh simple produce ooozing Italian flavour. Carmela has a wonderful set up, homely and professional, we felt we were cooking with a friend we had known for years! She had tips, ideas and was always happy to share information and made us feel very welcome whilst we learned some new skills. We look forward to returning to try out another marvellous recipe and revisit this idyllic peaceful venue”.(S.)
Up the country lane by the waters edge
Camilla has but just one pledge
To teach you how to cook the Italian way
3 generations passed down from Naples bay
A homely Italian kitchen lies in wait
For a very special memorable date
All her secrets she will reveal
How to cook an amazing tasty meal
With garlic, herbs and pasta made by hand
She’ll show you how from a bygone land
Tomatoes sunbathing on the windowsill
Another glass of wine she will fill
I was really sorry to say goodbye
But off to my own kitchen now to have a try
(A Poem from Simone)
