Learn to cook like a Sicilian on a 6-hour food and cookery tour in Taormina. Visit the local fruit and vegetable market, as well as fishmongers to select your fresh ingredients. Then cook traditional recipes under the guidance of a professional chef.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day journey through the food culture of Sicily on a half-day combined market tour and cookery class.
Start by meeting your chef for a guided tour of the local markets. Savor the aromas and colors of Sicily’s produce, selecting ingredients to prepare your lunch. Meet the fruit and vegetable vendors to find out what’s in season, and the fishmonger to choose the fresh catch of the day.
Then, head to the kitchen for a hands-on cooking class in the company of Chef Massimo. You will learn to make some of his family recipes and Sicilian specialties, such as ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers, a rainbow of sautéed peppers, eggplant and zucchini caponata, stuffed artichokes, and fresh egg pasta.
For your main, you will prepare a fish, meat or vegetarian dish, such as involtini (rolled stuffed beef), fish cooked Taormina-style, or polpette (meatballs). End by making a typical Sicilian dessert, before enjoying a lunch based on the foods you prepared in class. Wash it all down with some delicious Sicilian wines.
