A farming designer who specializes in planning food experiences, I’m passionate about the entire food process, from farm to table. This interest inspired me to create and guide the first-ever cooking and eating experience along the Amalfi Coast.

My goal is to connect guests and the community and use authentic food as a way to make them feel like a local. My team and I are excited to meet and guide you on one of the most enjoyable and unique cooking experiences you can find on the Amalfi Coast.

This was amazing! Food and culture goes hand in hand. Which means if you want to get to know Italy and the Amalfi coast you should get to know the local food and even more how to make it. Giacomo taught us more about local food and freshly picked ingredients than we could have hoped for. His knowledge isn't about food only but also about the area, its history and the history of tourism. If you are in the region don't miss out on this great adventure!

This was an amazing experience, we not only cooked an amazing meal but we got to forage and learn about the food we were eating. And this food grows wildly through the city. Previous to this experience I would of thought these were just weeds. We also learned about local food sustainability and some other interesting bio diversity topics.

Excellent - highly recommend this! We took a nice walk around the Praiano area and Giacomo was an excellent guide, we got a history of the area told through a story of food, exploring the local surroundings and picking some herbs as we wandered We were then taken to a spot with a breathtaking view across the Amalfi coast and taught how to make some lovely dishes. The dishes were simple incorporating the lovely foods from the area, no nonsense and great tasting. We finished by being served the dishes with some lovely local wine. Great experience. Giacomo was the perfect host. Local, Easy going and enthusiastic about his local food culture, he was accompanied for the cooking part by a chef who was very skilled and taught us some great cooking skills. Unforgettable!

An inspiring day spent with Giacomo learning about the slow food movement and the cultivation techniques of the Amalfi coast before cooking a delicious 4 course meal that was paired with craft beer and wine. While walking through the town of Praiano, we foraged wild herbs and flowers which we used in the dishes we cooked later in the day. Giacomo and Ricardo taught us new cooking methods that we are sure to use at home. The panoramic view of the Amalfi coast from the rooftop kitchen really made it an unforgettable day!

Incredible unforgettable sustainable tour with excellent local food and wines to boot! We wandered around these terraced gardens, mountain steps and ancient walls of Praiano, Giacomo educated us on the area, slow food and the local and global aims for continued culinary practices from garden to table. We handpicked fresh and interesting local produce growing in Praiano (how does a Sticky Weed pesto sound) taking in the sights, sounds and sea vista whilst. PhD educated Giacomo’s knowledge and passion for all of the above is both inspiring and contagious. I highly recommend this gastronomic trekking experience and I look forward to soon taking the trekking tours run by his company in Sorrento and Rome.
