Cooking Holiday in Sicily

Sicily is an island of contrasts, mixed cultures and changing landscapes.  Its ideal location in the middle of the Mediterranean means it is bathed in sunshine most of the time. It has an amazingly diverse and ancient heritage which can be found in its local cuisine. We base ourselves in the south-east of the island and the surrounding area is dotted with well-known historical sites, such as Siracusa’s Greek Theatre, and the Baroque towns of Noto and Ragusa which are day-trips on your cooking holiday.

I had a fantastic holiday – it was a beautiful venue with great company. The cooking lessons were so much fun and I learned a lot! The staff did a fabulous job making us all feel welcome and relaxed.
