"Mamma Agata" among the most important cooking schools in the Mediterranean area

After the great success of the cookbook "Mamma Agata: Simple and Genuine", winner of the Gourmand Cookbook Award in 2010, in the category "Best Easy Recipe", the Grand Prize at the 2012 Purple Dragonfly Book Award, in the category "Food Related", and the First Place at the 2012 Royal Dragonfly Book Award, in the category "Food Related", not to mention the many participations in US and UK TV programs (last in order of time, MASTERCHEF UK on BBC ONE), here comes a further international recognition for the cooking school par excellence of the Amalfi coast.

Zagat, the most famous and prestigious American guide, whose opinions are expressed directly by the public, has added "Mamma Agata" among the five most important cooking schools in the Mediterranean, together with "Les Petits Farcis" in Nice, "Tuscookany" at casa Ombuto in Tuscany, "Espai Boisà" in Barcelona and that one of Diane Kochilas on the Greek island of Ikaria.

In the magical tranquility of Ravello, in the shade of luxuriant and fragrant lemon trees, on a wonderful panoramic terrace overlooking the sea of the Amalfi coast, Mamma Agata - defined by Zagat "force of nature" -, helped by Chiara and Gennaro, illustrates to the students of her cooking class the secrets of her culinary art, consisting in simple and traditional tastes, organic vegetables grown by her husband Salvatore in the family garden and "flavored" by her innate passion that led her to cook since the age of 13 years for celebrities like Humprey Bogart, Jacqueline Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and, recently, Pierce Brosnan, Joanne Kern, Sela Ward, Kurt Warner and many others.

A sun-kissed cuisine - as it is defined in the article on Zagat signed by Louise Simpson - that cleverly combines extra virgin olive oil with fresh fish and vegetables in season, allowing you to discover the secrets of the Mediterranean diet, whose healing properties are universally recognized. Mamma Agata's passion for cooking is one of the best business cards abroad for the Amalfi coast, conferring success for this culinary initiative labeled "made in Ravello".
