We are in a small, hilly hamlet, Santa Tecla, situated on the spine of Mount Corvino, in the province of Salerno. From the top of the hill, one enjoys a splendid view of the sunny Campania sea, the valleys and lower slopes punctuated by olive trees and grapevines, the source of the local olive oil and wine.
It is in this luminous atmosphere that we meet our Cesarina Elena, just as radiant and exquisitely comfortable. Elena's roots are in nearby Naples, the city from which our Cesarina has acquired a great passion for traditional cuisine, which has always inspired and accompanied her in the development of her dazzling preparations.
