Positano Home Cooking is an unmissable experience during your stay. Peter and his team create a memorable, educational, and delicious night for a small group of guests - just about 10 people per night. You learn to cook yummy dishes with local ingredients; not necessarily your standard pizza or pasta making class, but a variety of dishes that you’d find any Italian making at home for dinner. The view is amazing. And the wine cellar…oh my gosh! Unbelievable! Peter is generous, funny, knowledgeable, and makes you feel right at home. Expect to leave full and tipsy! This was our favorite experience in Positano and a top night of our 18 day trip to Italy.

What an incredible experience! It was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. The setting in Peter’s home was tremendous (as was the challenge of finding it). The small group size was also perfect as it allowed us to interact with everyone. As for the food and wine, words won’t do them justice. Peter’s passion for food (and quality ingredients) was obvious. He wanted everyone to understand his approach to food as well as the ingredients that go into his food. He was also extremely thoughtful as it related to any food sensitivities and made sure it was a quality experience for all. I can’t say enough good things about our night. We were eating, drinking, cooking, learning, socializing and before you knew it, 4-5 hours had flown by. Thanks again, Peter. Would love to do it again soon.

Do not come to Positano without taking this cooking class. If you appreciate the finest quality ingredients and knowing where your food comes from as well as drinking the most amazing wines then you MUST come to Peter's house and experience this class. A classically trained chef and sommelier Peter's explanation of where he sources his ingredients will make your jaw drop. The best of the best. Cooked up into a delicious 5 course meal in the comfort of his amazing home hanging on a cliff overlooking the Positano coast. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

This review is long overdue, given this was one of the most incredible experiences of both my husband and my life to date. We honeymooned in Positano in September and were lucky enough to have secured spots in Peter's Positano Home Cooking Class. We were greeted by Peter and his assistant on the steps outside of his villa and promptly guided through a beautiful garden to balcony seating overlooking the ocean. Once all of the class attendees arrived, we ventured inside to the cooking station, where Peter uncorked the most delicate, delicious Prosecco. Before the Prosecco was finished, gorgeous bottles of chardonnay were opened and enjoyed. Our glasses were never empty and each wine complimented the food prepared. We were astonished at the quality of the food and wine served, and Peter's vast knowledge of it. He explained where all of the food was sourced - most of the vegetables were grown in Peter's garden and he explained where the other ingredients came from. We enjoyed 5 courses, starting with roll ups consisting of prosciutto, arugula, the most incredible gorgonzola and parmesan. The final course was the most gorgeous beef filet and Italian sausage and we were served a delicious torte for dessert that Peter made himself. Each course prepared was extremely fresh (all ingredients were biodynamic or organic), flavorful and special. Peter's family has lived in Positano for generations and his love for the region is bold and pure. His passion for sustainability is inspiring. We learned so much! The combination of Peter's expertise, personality (sophisticated with a hilarious, raunchy flair) and the most incredible food made this one of the most special experiences of our lives. We did not want the evening to end and will absolutely take this class again if given the chance. If you're thinking about taking this class - don't hesitate. You will not regret it!

Positano Home Cooking was the highlight of our trip! Peter welcomes you into his incredible villa for an unforgettable and informative evening! He takes you through the premium ingredients in each dish that you help to prepare and explains how he vets suppliers or grows every delicious morsel you are about to have. I can't wait to start asking more questions and researching where to get higher quality food in our own backyard. Also, this experience has phenomenal wine pairings with each dish. I joked at the end he is the Olivander of Wine for any Harry Potter fans out there. He curates a completely customized wine journey based on your answers to a few preference questions. I discovered so many favorite new wines from his incredible wine cellar.

I can not say enough good things about this experience and Peter! He truly welcomes you into his home as a friend. My husband and I had some of the best food we have ever tasted. Peter is brilliant in his knowledge and is an expert in his craftsmanship as a chef! We felt so honored to have been apart of an unforgettable evening!

Hands down the most incredible and memorable night of our lives! It's hard to find the words to even describe this experience. Chef Peter goes above and beyond in every way to make sure you have the time of your life. It was by FAR the best food we've tasted in all of Italy and we learned SO much from him. Not only delicious food, but the views from Peter's house while you are eating are just breathtaking. Oh and the wine... Peter has a selection like you have never seen before. If you are in Positano, you cannot leave without coming to Positano Home Cooking. Peter really made us feel like family, no one wanted to go home! One more note for anyone who is gluten free/ has any dietary restrictions... Peter again went above and beyond! He made everyone feel so comfortable if they had any restrictions. I'm gluten free and I was able to have the same food as everyone all night, and the gluten free pasta was amazing!! This review doesn't even do it justice. It's a once in a lifetime experience!!!

I had done quite a bit of research on the various cooking classes that were available in Positano prior to booking this class. I read all of the reviews for Positano Home Cooking, and booked an evening with my husband. This undoubtedly was one of the highlights of our 12 day trip to the Amalfi Coast. Peter was extremely welcoming and so relatable during the entire evening. He is so knowledgable about good clean cooking, and created the most delicious menu with several courses that we thoroughly enjoyed. His ingredients were all organic and locally sourced, which was also just wonderful. We had a different wine pairing from his wine cellar with each course. We also toured the wine cellar, and did some tastings, as well. I would definitely recommend booking an evening with Peter to anyone who loves good food and wine, and is interested in a true local experience while in Positano. You will not be disappointed.
