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.

The villas where our cookery holidays in Sicily take place are built in a typical Sicilian style. Chosen because of their locations, they have some beautiful views of the surrounding areas. Within the grounds of the villas, there are beautiful outdoor facilities complete with swimming pools, surrounded by almond and olive trees. After a dip, you can sit back and relax on the terrace. Sicily is an ideal place for a Mediterranean island holiday and our villa is the perfect place to kick back and relax. View our photo gallery to see more of your venue.
