Learn how to cook some classic Sicilian recipes in a warm and friendly atmosphere and experience firsthand the great flavors of Sicily.
Sicily is not only a beautiful and dreamily spot of the world to visit but, if you are a Mediterranean food lover, it is also the right place from which to take some cooking inspiration. Your cooking class takes place in a fully equipped kitchen set inside a house facing the sea in the real heart of Ortygia, the ancient town of Siracusa.
The day starts touring the Ortigia’s wonderful outdoor market. The ambience is punctuated by colored tarpaulins to protect from the elements the wares: a colorful assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and freshly caught fish from the teeming waters of the surrounding sea. Our hostess will offer you a walking tour with a tasting of local cheese and salumi among the market stalls before heading back to her kitchen for lots of fun. Everybody knows her at the market; she introduces you to the venders and shows where to buy the best and the freshest food. With the fresh ingredients from the market and tips picked up along the way, Fiora welcomes you at her beautiful home overlooking the marina. Inside the fully equipped kitchen, you are able to gain hands experience how to make dishes while chatting about Sicilan life and food. After cooking you sit down together sipping a Sicilian Prosecco that precedes the lunch where you will eat the fruits of your creations matched with excellent wine. You can bring home the cooking apron and recipes to remember this wonderful day.
