Our cooking class on the Amalfi Coast is in the hands of a unique and passionate woman: grandma Margherita! The charm of this event dates back to the 1960s,
when Margherita, returning from New York after a few years of immigration, managed to pass on her culinary secrets with her first restaurant: the Beach Bar, located on Positano's beach.
Her verve, mixed with a contagious sympathy, always discreet and elegant, makes her a smiling presence that interacts with the guests by showing off her English and transmitting her love for the food creation, inside the ancient family tower.
Even if Margherita’s role at the Beach Bar was taking care of customers and hospitality, she often ended up cooking, because she didn't lack the skills and, taking advantage of the advice of her mother Anna, she prepared traditional Mediterranean dishes and delicacies such as the homemade tagliatelle.
The Hotel Margherita was founded in 1971. The year is the one that marks also the birth of Margherita’s second daughter, Suela, that today welcomes all the guests with a smile, at the front desk of the hotel.
Today, in our hotel in Praiano, the cooking class of grandma Margherita is a tale of the soul, in which thoughts and words merge with different cultures and with the precious suggestions to recreate the experience of the dishes of the Amalfi Coast.
