Looking for fun things to do at home and little lockdown escapism? This virtual cooking class will transport you to the gorgeous region of Campania, in Italy and have you cooking up hot, fresh, homemade gnocchi from scratch.

Campania is not only the home of your chef who will be leading this online class (so you can rest assured this divine recipe has authenticity), but it is also famous for delicious pizza, limoncello and the Roman ruins of Pompei.

This particular recipe is named after the famous town of Sorrento, just off the Campanian coast (hence the name "Gnocchi alla Sorrentina"). It's a hearty and warming dish that is incredibly comforting on colder winter nights.

Traditionally and for the ultimate indulgence, gnocchi should be made from scratch and with this cooking class online, we will do just that.

During this beginner-friendly online class, you'll receive plenty of step-by-step guidance and expert tips and tricks along the way such as how to keep the mixture light and fluffy, resulting in pillowy rather than chewy gnocchi.

This recipe is a real crowd pleaser and loved by kids and adults. In Campania, gnocchi alla Sorrentina is traditionally cooked on Sundays, when families get together for lunch. To avoid arguments over portion sizes, you can also bake it in an individual terrine, because I promise you, they will fight over it!

I started Cook with Luca because I wanted to teach people how to make amazing traditional Italian soul food from scratch.

The aim of my online classes is that you enjoy yourself and other's company, share ideas and cooking tips and enjoy a glass of wine with a delicious meal.

My public classes are also an opportunity to learn new skills, acquire more knowledge about Italian culture, socialise with like-minded foodies and ultimately start to feel confident in the kitchen when inviting friends and family over for a meal!
