A passion for cooking, and a cuisine made with passion! This is the best way for defining Mamma Agata's culinary art, her natural aptitude for the preparation of simple and genuine dishes, only using local ingredients and organic vegetables grown by her husband, Salvatore, in the family garden.
The "Mamma Agata: Simple and Genuine" cookbook is the result of four years of hard work made by her daughter, Chiara, and her son-in-law Gennaro; they personally took care of all of the various phases of the project: text, photos, graphic design, layout and press (they self-published their cookbook).
"Mamma Agata: Simple and Genuine", which won the Gourmand Cookbook Award in 2010, in the category "Best Easy Recipe" (second only to a cookbook by Jamie Oliver), has now conquered other two prestigious international awards, during the competition organized by Five Star Publication: the Grand Prize at the 2012 Purple Dragonfly Book Award, in the category "Food Related", and the First Place at the 2012 Royal Dragonfly Book Award, in the category "Food Related".
A "Made in Ravello" delightful success: on a beautiful panoramic terrace overlooking the sea of the Amalfi coast, surrounded by lush lemon trees, Mamma Agata, Chiara and Gennaro illustrate the secrets of their culinary art to their students, in order to prepare the same dishes that, in the past, delighted the palates of Humphrey Bogart, Jacqueline Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor and, recently, have been appreciated by Pierce Brosnan, Joanne Kern, Sela Ward, Kurt Warner and many other celebrities.
The good news continues! Mamma Agata's cookbook is now available also in German language, published by Styria, and on sale both on Amazon.de and in all the libraries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.Chiara and Gennaro have accomplished an extraordinary task that cannot miss in the homes of lovers of the Mediterranean cuisine: it is a project that required years of hard work and now is enjoying international success.
A great passion for cooking, great smile and joy de vivre are the hallmarks of Mamma Agata, Chiara and Gennaro: a family that will welcome you in their "hidden treasure" and will make you experience good food with LOVE in a "simple and genuine" way!.
