I had a lovely time with Maria and Fede our translator. We made delicious prawn and pistachio pasta followed by salted cod with a sfincione style topping. And then cannoli which were to die for. I was inspired to make all these dishes when I get home. Thoroughly recommended!

My friend really wanted to do a cooking class in Sicily, and while i don't really like to cook, I decided to tag along. It was one of the best days!

Our host was a lovely lady who taught us how to make pasta with norma sauce, eggplant meatballs and dessert. It was a very fun experience, we had some wine as we cooked and I loved every minute of it. There was also a translator which made it very authentic

Do yourself a favour and go to this. It's not to be missed!

I have never been to a cooking class. I recently moved to Palermo from Canada and a visiting friend encouraged me to join him for a TRUE SICILIAN Cooking Class. I had seen may of the dishes in the street market and Mamma Corleone Customized a Selection of Dishes. I LEARNED SO MUCH - not only about the ingredients, but the culture and history behind the dishes and practicing my Italian. I plan on taking another class in the near future to learn more TRADITIONAL SICILIAN DISHES

Myself and my husband decided to try a street food cooking class in Palermo and we are so glad we found mama corleones..we spent a few hours making some popular street foods like arincini and having a chat over a glass of wine with mariapio and her daughter x such a warm and friendly environment to learn about the food of palermo and really felt like we were getting a true authentic Sicilian experience xxx the food was delicious and they even packed up the leftovers for us to snack on!!!xx highly recommend this when in Palermo certainly a highlight of our trip!😍👌

Our group of three Australians who like to cook booked this class at the last minute. What a find! Maria Pia and her translator Lucy, over a friendly and leisurely 4 hours in their small but well designed kitchen just near the Duomo, taught us to cook panelle (chickpeas fritters), arachini and pasta alla norma. We all cooked - and later ate - each dish, accompanied by a glass of wine and followed by real coffee. Well organized, nicely paced and the right amount of support so that we all successfully created each dish. New skills, new recipes and a really fun time. Highly recommended.

I can't rate our experience highly enough. Maria Pia was fantastic teaching us some great Sicilian dishes and there was so much food that we are set for dinner tonight as well. Alesia did a fantastic job translating and giving us Italian lessons at the same time.

What attracted us to book with Mama Corleone was that we were able to choose the dishes to cook from a reasonably good range of options and were able to add a fourth dish for a reasonable cost. A service provider with that sort of flexibility is rare to find these days.

The atmosphere was friendly, the setup was professional and clean, the wine was great and the company excellent.

Book this place quickly because once everyone finds out about it they will be booked up quickly.

This is a fantastic experience and was everything we hoped for. Wonderful privilege to have such great one to one tuition from Maria Pia and Gina who could not have been more friendly or generous. Massively recommended.

We had a delightful afternoon cooking, chatting and eating with Maria Pia and Gina. As it was a Sunday we were able to customise the class to a degree. We made Caponata, Arancini and Cannoli which is the main reason for taking the class. Maria Pia made sure to adapt the arancini to a Gluten Free version so that I wouldn't miss out on tasting them. As the cannoli weren't gluten free Maria Pia prepared a quick gluten free dessert so that I wouldn't miss out on a sweet at the end of our meal. We drove from Cefalu to Palermo to take the class and I would have no hesitation in recommending the class to anyone interested in learning to prepare authentic sicilian cuisine.

Always do a cooking class on holiday. This is one of the best we’ve done. Highly recommended - especially as the weather wasn’t great!

I took this cooking class with my girlfriend on a recent trip to Palermo and it was excellent. We loved the food we cooked and it all tasted terrific. We enjoyed the food so much that we are eager to employ the same recipes at home. Alesia and Maria Pia were wonderful hosts. They made us feel comfortable and supported. We enjoyed the experience thoroughly and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Palermo!
