“Tell me what you eat and I can tell you how you are.”

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin – Taste physiology, 1825

Cooking is one of the most immediate representations of a culture, getting to know the cuisine of a city is the best way to know its history.
Campanian cuisine has ancient historical roots that date back to the Greek-roman period, and it has been enriched over the centuries thanks to the influence of the different cultures that took place during the various rulers of the city.
The specialties are many and all still really close to the most authentic traditions.
They, more than products to be enjoyed, are a category of the soul, a form of wisdom, a cultural background, along with art, history, geography.

We invite you in a full immersion to discover this land, this will be an experience that gratifies all your senses
