La Locanda del Gusto

In one of the most beautiful settings in the world that has enchanted poets and artists for centuries, among breathtaking landscapes and kilometers of citrus groves, in 1999 Mamma Titina, a D.O.C. Neapolitan, founded the “La cucina del gusto” school with the aim of spreading traditional cuisine Neapolitan and the authentic flavors of his youth.Over the years the school has become an international point of reference, where tourists from the most diverse corners of the Earth learn to create gnocchi, ravioli, lasagna and all those typical delicacies of Neapolitan culinary culture with their own hands.
To ensure that those who cannot get to Sorrento can experience the course first hand, Chef Carmen has created a recipe book for the foreign market, available only in English: “Chef Carmen: a result of Mamma Titina”.
