We are a husband & wife team of professional chefs/restaurant owners who love to share our passion of Italian food and culture!

Chef Joe Cicala is a James Beard nominated chef and 4 time semi- finalist, while Chef Angela Cicala is one of Philadelphia's most celebrated pastry chefs. We have been recognized for our authenticity of Italian food and culture, as we travel abroad often, discovering old recipes by cooking with locals in some of Italy's most remote regions. Together we also host culinary tours to Italy each year.

Where you'll be

Our cooking classes take place in our row home in the Italian American neighborhood of South Philly. "Sunday gravy", (marinara sauce), can still be smelled in the air on Sundays mornings and neighbors can be heard chatting in Italian dialect on their stoops.

My boyfriend Joe and I went and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We both love cooking and have been trying to learn as much as possible lately and this was the perfect experience to learn and be surrounded by great people. We’ve been telling all our friends and family about the experience.

This was my second experience cooking and dining with Angela and Joe. The second time was as exceptional as the first. The members of my group also loved the experience and can't wait for a future opportunity to do it again, if available. The chefs were so welcoming and full of knowledge and the food was amazing!

This was a delightful experience. Angela was a wonderful host, full of stories and personal recollections of her experience in the restaurant world. It was a great opportunity to participate in making a delicious meal, and they encouraged us to participate in all aspects of the meal. The experience was expertly paced and we all enjoyed a wonderful meal together. I could not have asked for more from this experience. Thank you both!
