Gourmet Safari

pp 80-1 Spaghetti with musclesWhat: Join Amanda TABBERER  for a delectable journey of local food & wine along the Amalfi Coast.  Author of two best selling books on this region My Amalfi Coast (2008) & Amalfi Coast Recipes (2012)  and long standing local of nearly 20 years, Amanda will take you on a delightful & unforgettable gourmet safari like no other.

This gourmet safari requires a minimum of 6 pers or a maximum of 8 pers,  smaller numbers can be negotiated.  This week long adventure will take you to some of Amanda’s favorite restaurants & kitchens along the Amalfi Coast…….she will also introduce you to some of her favorite chefs from her recently published book; Amalfi Coast Recipes!From mountain top hideaway trattorias to beachside eateries that will blow your mind and palate, you will taste some excellent local wines and devour everything from exquisite fisherman’s treasures from the sea to comforting country delicacies fit for a Neapolitan King!

When: The best time to enjoy a good gourmet safari is definitely outside the High Season period. So Amanda will always attempt to leave the second half of May or mid October.

How: All you have to do is get yourself to Rome and Amanda will organize  the rest!  You will have a limousine  pickup from the Rome airport (or Naples if you prefer), she will book your accommodation according to your preferences, whether it be a spacious villa for  8 pers, a group of cosy individual  apartments  or a central glossy hotel………….and for those interested,  she will organize an excellent local chef to give a private cooking class!……naturally followed by a delicious meal.

Where: This safari will take you up and down the Amalfi Coast to eat in any one of the 13 villages. From the mountain top town of Tramonti to the fishing village of Cetara & anywhere in between; these are all possible venues. The 40 kms coastline is easily accessible with our luxury minivan or local ‘gozzo’ boat and Amanda will strive for a good variety of not only dishes but also villages to offer you a rich and varied palate and experience.

General Itinerary:  Breakfast will be at your leisure in your hotel, villa or local bar if you prefer to mingle with the townsfolk! When you are not enjoying a Gourmet meal with Amanda, she will offer you a list of extra exciting things to do while visiting the Amalfi coast region and help you plan your day ahead of time or even as a spontaneous event. You will know in advance if your gourmet treat each day will be a leisurely lazy luncheon or an enchanted evening meal. The exact venues of each Gourmet meal will be decided on arrival when the weather patterns will determine if sea or land transport is better. The third meal each day will be at your own discretion, if you have room for it!
