Palermo is known for its distinctive cuisine, still served overwhelmingly in private homes that are not accessible to most visitors. With this cooking class, explore the city’s culinary landscape with a guided visit through a historic Capo market followed by a hands-on lesson to prepare classic dishes with the help of a local chef. Make a full meal from appetizer to dessert, and then sample your handiwork over lunch.

Marco the chef is very charismatic and funny. He gave us great tips in the market and in the kitchen. We had a great translator, Julia who gave us insight not just about cooking but also about life in Palermo. By the time we sat down for lunch, it was more like eating and hanging out with friends. What a fun day! I will take any of Fabrizio Cavallaro’s tours.
