Description

Context Naples' Pizza Making Workshop is part walking seminar, part hands-on experience with the cuisine of Naples. We will explore the history and traditions of the city, in the context of Neapolitan cooking and culture, and then head to one of the city's famed pizzerie where we will get the chance to create our own pizza and feast on it for lunch!

We will begin with a stroll through the dense historical center of Naples, all the while discussing some of the most important culinary traditions of the city, how they were born and how Neapolitan cuisine has evolved throughout the centuries. You will discuss the influence of the Spanish and Norman domination on Neapolitan food, as well as different preparation techniques. As we wind our way through the characteristic neighborhoods of via Toledo and Spaccanapoli, we will stop at some of the oldest and more traditional cafes and pastry shops. Depending on the time of the year and your interest, we will taste traditional Neapolitan snacks and sweets such as taralli, baba' al rhum and sfogliatelle.

After this enticing appetizer, we will visit one of Naples' most traditional pizzerias. Here you will be given the ingredients and tools to make your own pizza Napoletana. A trained pizzaiolo will supervise your work and give you advice for achieving the perfect dough consistency and the right sauce-spreading and mozzarella-sprinkling techniques. Once the pizza is taken from the wood-burning oven, we will sit down and eat our masterpiece!

About Us

The Context vision is to create an atmosphere—a context, if you will—for curious travelers to engage with local experts; to give them access to places and cultures that might otherwise remain out of sight to the casual visitor; to invite them off the tourist track and into the real life of the people, history, and heritage that make these cultural capitals amazing. With no more than six people, you'll participate in an intimate, hands-on, conversational experience. No Tour Guides - Our docents are first and foremost scholars or specialists, with MAs, Ph.D.s, or other terminal degrees in their fields of study.
