Italian Cooking Short Breaks in Sicily

Our short break cookery courses in Sicily give you the chance to discover the fascinating region of Sicily. Spend 4 days in the south-east of the island, learning to cook traditional Sicilian dishes and exploring historic towns such as Siracusa and Modica.

Nicknamed “God’s kitchen”, Sicily’s cuisine reflects its history – a melting pot of cultures after many invasions by the Greeks, the Byzantines and the Spanish (to name a few!) Much like the rest of Italy, Sicilian cooking is based on seasonal and locally grown ingredients ,with many of their centuries-old recipes using ingredients such as seafood, citrus, pistachios and ricotta.
