We had the BEST time during the cooking class! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. We got to shop at the local market to pick out fresh ingredients, then assist in all the prep work. We were also provided with local bread, olive oil, wine, and olives to snack on while we cooked. My husband and I made some new friends on our trip who joined us for the cooking class. Total there were 6 of us, and it was the perfect number of people. This class was probably the best thing we did during our vacation. We learned quite a few tips and tricks, plus the food we prepared was amazing. If we go back, we're definitely doing a class again with Sicilian Days! They also have a website for more cooking class options.
sorry for my delayed follow up but we habeen cooking all the time!!
Thanks so so much for your great and generous comment, we appreciate it and we wish you were here to cook again together.

This was a family event and we all had a great time. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating to our special dietary needs. We prepared a wonderful meal together and really enjoyed the whole experience.
Great instruction, great food, great company. I was in a small class there were only two students, but that made it even better because that meant we did more of the hands-on stuff and got to chat more. Ours was a fish-based meal, and I'm not much into fish, but it was delicious and really opened my eyes and taste-buds to new possibilities. I still have and use the recipes we made!
Patricia met us on time at the appointed place in central Palermo. From others we went to the local market to shop for the ingredients to use for our class. Once we arrived at chef's charming, well appointed apartment we got down to business. The instructions were made, the food was being prepared and the wine was being opened. We made four classic Sicilian dishes and each one was delicious. Then we sat down and enjoyed the fruits of our labor, with some more whine of course.
This was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in cultural immersion. A truly fantastic day with a charming, talented chef.
The best day ever !!!A morning shopping and cooking what dreams are made of .
Our hostess was a real darling ..Patricia..She welcomed us into her home and we had such an informative time delicious food wine and home made limencello...Just wonderful..Can't wait to return..Do it you won't be disappoi
Amazing experience!! Highly recommend to all visiting Palermo, Sicily. Patricia was a wonderful host and chef from the meeting point in the square to the wonderful shopping experience through the market to the preparation and enjoyment of the wonderful meal we prepared together. I brought home the recipes and do fully intend to try to recreate at home. My husband has said of our 15 days in Europe, this was the most enjoyable day we shared.
