Cook Ravioli with an Italian Chef at her Agriturismo

A pinch of this, a pinch of that—make ravioli with an Italian chef at her Agriturismo.

Step inside a family-owned farmhouse, or agriturismo, nestled in the hills of the Sorrento Peninsula between the Bay of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. Surrounded by lush gardens, cultivated fields, and vegetation typical of the Campania region, the farmhouse kitchen is full of delicious local specialties all year long. During this Online Escape, you’ll cook Ravioli alla Caprese with chef Francesca. She learned how to make this traditional southern Italian dish with her grandmother and can't wait to share this original recipe with you. A handful of ingredients and tools you already have in your kitchen are all you need to create this delicious dish. As Francesca will tell you, your hands are your most important tool for pasta-making. You'll learn the right consistency for making your dough, how long to stir to make sure your ravioli filling is perfecto, and her secret to perfecting any pasta dish. Grab a glass of Falanghina wine from Campania or another dry white wine (it pairs perfectly with this meal) and let’s get cooking together!

Took this class with my friend. Francesca is charming, engaging, and informative. I have attempted to make ravioli before with less than tasty results. I can officially say that I am 100X more successful at making ravioli and...
