Cooking Holiday in Sicily

The recipes and flavours of Sicilian cookery are intertwined with its long and fascinating history, as various civilizations – Greek, Roman, Arabic, Norman, Spanish, as well as British – have all left their mark on the island’s famously delicious cuisine.

No Single Supplement

A room to yourself. We never charge a single room supplement.

Book with Confidence

Flexibility and peace of mind for our guests with their holiday booking.

This new four-day cookery break will teach you how to create some of the island’s traditional recipes while also learning new techniques and skills to add to your repertoire.

You will be staying in a typical 19th-century Sicilian villa which has an outdoor swimming pool and is surrounded by almond and olive trees. Your cooking lessons with an expert local chef will be held in the villa’s huge kitchen and include authentic Sicilian dishes such as pasta con le sarde from Palermo, arancini and cassata. You will also enjoy day trips to historic sights such as the Baroque towns of Noto and Ragusa. Plus, there is no single supplement to pay, so this is a great gourmet break whether you are travelling solo or with family and friends.
