The cooking workshop was TOP! Friendly lady, who explains well and with whom you put traditional Sicilian dishes on the table. Hospitality and enthusiasm, splashes from it. Be sure to make the recipes at home, even if the environment is different, hope to be able to match the taste. It's going to be difficult, but definitely worth a try. All in all, highly recommended to take this cooking and limoncello class.

A great experience, thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Palermo. Patriza was very knowledgable about Sicilian food and cooking and was a great host. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the beef rolls! Patriza was also very helpful for tips and recommendations for our stay in Palermo.
