When I travel, I rarely come across a place that I want to visit again. Not because I am so picky; it's really not that at all. Rather, there are so many spectacular places on this earth that I want to see that I just rarely think that I need to go someplace again.
This is a place that I fully intend to visit again. Actually, the partners who run this venture have such an amazing vision of Locanda Demetra in the future that I hope I can stay in one of their apartments someday.
I recently did a cooking class here with 3 other adults and my 8-year-old daughter. It was simply amazing. In addition to her talent in the kitchen, Chef Imma was so patient and kind, even with my daughter, who was so proud of the pasta that she made. The kitchen is beautiful. We made pasta from scratch, including egg-based and egg-free with tartufi, into pappardelle, tortellini, ravioli, and cavatelli. We learned to make a basic tomato sauce, pork medallions with zucchini and mint, and tiramisu.
Then we sat down to eat what we made. Plus we had 4 other family members join us for lunch. They got Chef Imma's tasting menu, which was unbelievably delicious. I loved every bite. She has an amazing talent. The view and ambiance were fabulous!
Alessandro is friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed talking to him throughout the meal.
I truly cannot say enough about how great of an experience this was. I cannot wait to come back!
