Meet your guide, a professional chef, in central Ortigia in time for a 10.30am departure. After discussing the day’s menu, set off to the Ortigia Market to shop for fresh ingredients.
Enjoy a glimpse of typical Italian life as you explore the bustling marketplace and browse the colorful stalls. Listen as your guide explains the seasonal produce, herbs and spices on sale and help select the meat, vegetables, and herbs that you’ll use in your cooking class.
Next, head to your cooking space for the day and set to work creating traditional Sicilian dishes such as eggplant meatballs, spaghetti with zucchini and mint, or tuna with caramelized onions. Finally, sit down in the dining area to enjoy your home-cooked feast, accompanied by a selection of Italian wines.
Your tour ends after lunch and you’ll be given the recipes to take home with you.
