This was such a thrill for me! Passionate about his 150 year generation owned gelato store, I was honored to be able to learn the secret of making the very best sorbet using fresh Sorrento lemons and such creamy gelato!

We did the 4/5 hours Italian cookery lesson at the Old Taverna Sorrentina Cooking School and would highly recommend. Even though we are absolute beginners, we still picked up a lot of tips and had a very enjoyable time.
