I own the cooking school my mother, Anna Tasca lanza, created in 1989. The Anna Tasca lanza Sicilian cooking school is located in the heart of Sicily, among the Tasca d'Almerita vineyards, surrounded by an amazing landscape, entirely preserved by any sort of pollution. At the school hands on classes are mainly on Sicilian traditional cuisine and are prepared with ingredients seasonally farmed on the estate.

I came up here to have a look to bring a group of tourists for next year. This is a truly amazing place to visit and experience, totally stands on its own, has its own sense of character and quite welcoming. The staff are welcoming and the experience is priceless.

It is not recommended. Outings don't eventuate. Rooms are sub standard: no en-suite and not secure. Wine is corked (and they don't understand corked wine), cooking bench caters for 3 people and as we were 11, you don't get a see-in, Fabrizia and Paola are not trained chefs so really floundering with cooking methods. Cost-a-lot and believe me, not worth... More

Dear Jenny, thank you for your feedback, we always seek to improve what we offer our guests. In terms of the accommodation, as you probably noticed, it is not a hotel but a family home; a simple cozy country home with beds made up with embroidered linen; and embroidered towels. The service is homey and it is clear from our website... More

Our group of about 50 enjoyed a half day at the cooking school. Our organizer requested the visit, and I didn't get the feeling that it was at all typical to have groups of that size, but they handled it well. The staff was very friendly and quickly served us drinks. We split in 2 small groups to alternate touring... More

We recently spent 5 days at the cooking school and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It far exceeded all of our expectations. We cooked with Fabrizia and Mario and produced some really wonderful meals. They are both very "hands on" instructors who are equally comfortable teaching by demonstration and/or by doing. We enjoyed harvesting some of our ingredients from... More

my wife and I spent 2 wonderful days at the cooking school with Fabrizia, her assistant Mario and the rest of the staff. Our time included a fascinating visit to a sheep farm to watch the making of fresh ricotta and the best winery tour I had ever been on. We then had a lovely tasting of some of the... More

Towards the end of our week-long Sicilian culinary tour, we spent our final three nights at Casa Vecchie, run by Anna's daughter Fabrizia and a handful of international interns...where traditions of a culinary icon continue. Throughout our stay, we feasted on fine Sicilian cooking; even learning to prepare a few dishes under Fabrizia's mentorship. I would say that we were... More

We spent 3 nights at the Anna Tasca Cooking School at Case Vecchie about 100kms from Palermo in a beautiful part of the Sicilian countryside. The fabulous Fabrizia continues and extends the traditions of her famous mother Anna. We had a wonderful, enchanting time with her, learning about Sicilian cuisine and cooking meals which were then shared around a groaning... More

The cooking school and dinner at the winery was the highlight of our trip to Sicily! Costanza, Fabrizia's niece, and her staff couldn't have been more welcoming! I learned a lot & thoroughly enjoyed the class. The food & wine was amazing and the setting was breathtaking! My dream is to return to Sicily some day & do it all... More

Anna Tasca Lanza coking school is located somewhere hidden and tugged away in the je lands of sicily. It's an adventure to get there, small winding roads, full of holes, no sign posts, through the fields and vineyards. When you get there, don't pass it, as there's no sign that you have arrived ... You might see a young woman... More

We came with such high hopes for this cooking school , but found it to be the most expensive and least structured one we have been to. The setting was stunning , but although advertised as 3 days, it was 3 evening meal preparations and 2 visits, one to their vineyard and the other to the ricotta cheese making farm,... More
