Rather than a formal cooking lesson in a commercial kitchen space, this class offers a more intimate alternative—a cooking lesson with a local family in a country house. Get top cooking tips that you likely wouldn’t find out about otherwise—such as how to select the best seasonal ingredients at a local market. Explore the secrets of Sicilian cuisine, make multiple dishes, and best of all—eat them at the end!
