My husband and I took the class in Sicilian cooking last week(9/18/19), and not only was it fun, we learned a lot! There were also folks there doing a cannoli class, and a pizza class, but we made typical(delicious!) Sicilian dishes, not just watching, but actually doing the recipes; then we feasted on them(go hungry!). Highly recommend!

Dear Patty6349 Thank you for your review from all the team; the Sicilian cooking class is a very peculiar experience among all our tours. As you said it not only gives the opportunity to eat typical Sicilian dishes but also to learn how to do it once you get back home. We are very pleased that you and your husband had a great time. Hope to have you again as our guest in your next trip to Sicily. Kind regards P.Lombardo The owner

I would highly recommend this experience. Chef Massimo was so full of enthusiasm, the time just flew by. The day started with a visit to the local market where Chef Massimo explained about the local produce, including fresh fish, meat and vegetables. With produce purchased we moved on to a local restaurant and kitchen set with wonderful views over the bay. We started making pasta and then rolled it into macaroni. Then chopped and cooked vegetables to make caponata, moved onto a fantastic cauliflower dish, then meatballs in lemon leafs, then fish. All of the cooking was explained well and Chef Massimo put you at ease and guided you through each process. With the cooking complete we then sat down to eat the food we had prepared. It was wonderful and with copious amounts of wine, Chef Massimo joined us to entertain us with stories of friends, family and life. We could have sat there all day! I'm so glad we decided to do this, it was a day I will always remember with fondness. Chef Massimo is Sicily's answer to Jamie Oliver and I can't wait for the book!

Masai I gave a wonderful and informative tour around the local market which proved really usefu two days later when a frstaurant tried to pass off two day old fish as fresh!!! The pasta making was fun and gave us all a good work out. The end result was a great lunch with wine and good friends. A definite tour if you are a novice cook and want to try something a little different - I'd love a two day class it waould be fun and really useful.

Chef Massimo was so much fun! He was relaxed and engaging while keeping all the participants on task. We cooked a lovely lunch with his instruction. He also gave us recommendations for restaurants that serve seasonal and local foods. Even if you're not an enthusiastic home cook, you will highly enjoy this class.
