Outstanding
Aug 2021
Fiora conducted a cooking class for the 6 people in our group. We had a fantastic time. She welcomed us into her home and had pre-prepared some of the time consuming parts of the dishes for us so we could get down to cooking. She taught us how to make Fried Squash Blossoms! We made Caponatina, home made cheese ravioli with brown butter sage sauce,(we filled and cut the past ourselves.) Swordfish with cherry tomatoes and topped the whole evening off with her faboulous cannoli's. Oh, and a shot of lemoncello plus her wonderful homemade tangerine cello! What a night. Highly recommend her.

Amazing experience
Jun 2021
I booked this master-class\event as a gift for my GF's birthday. I read a lot of positive reviews and decided that it is worth trying. It was wonderfull! Fiora decided to spoil us with some extra dishes even, so we could try to cook more sicilian food. It was outstanding to watch her cooking - she is a professional and her recipes go from her mother and grandmother, so you will get valuable tips and details that you can use even with another types of dishes. For example we cooked a sea food pasta from scratch - i couldn't imagine that it can be so easy - and the final result of all dishes was excellent - i would say better than in most of the restaurants we ate. What we didn't finish we took home and had another wonderful meal at the same evening. Also you can check her B&B rooms and order a diner from her in a rooftop terrace (we didn't try it, but we saw her cosy house and had a nice chat with her during our lunch). Thanks again Fiora!

Perfect day
Sep 2020 • Couples
This was a truly wonderful experience. Fiora took my partner and I first around the market, introducing us to what was fresh and in season. She spoke to vendors and pointed out her favourite stalls and how to select food. She then welcomed us back to her home and we started cooking! Fresh cheeses and ham wrapped figs, jams and tomatoes, an orange and mango salad with olives and pomegranate, breadcrumbed and stuffed fresh anchovies, then ricotta ravioli with tomato and sausage. All with wine and a special surprise for dessert.

Fiora taught us how to make each recipe with love and care in a way that I can't wait to repeat. We spoke about the pleasures of cooking and eating and took some things home with us.

We will be back to the market tomorrow! What a delightful experience, thank you. I recommend this very highly!

Amazingly personal experience with Fiora!
Jul 2020 • Couples
My girlfriend was very interested in attending a cooking class in Sicily and Fiora absolutely was able to deliver this! We started off on a market where we purchased local ingredients, all of which were used in the cooking class. Fiora inquired about what we wanted to cook and we landed on swordfish and a variation of pasta Norma, both of which were amazing. We even made our own pasta. We had a lot of fun, and really felt that Fiora made the experience tailored and personal. Overall, very positive about the cooking class - we can certainly recommend!

Outstanding day cooking with Fiora!
Aug 2019
My family of five, including kids 10, 8 and 5 years old, had the best day cooking with Fiora! We met her in the morning, visited the market, decided on a menu for lunch and bought all the ingredients fresh from the butcher, fishmonger and farmers. Fiora is a great presence and knows her vendors well -- we were able to get the freshest fish, meat and other products. We then returned to her apartment, which is stunning, and all together prepared one of the best meals of our lives!

Fiora had made homemade cannoli shells in the morning before she met us and served them with fresh ricotta cream. They were amazing!

My entire family loved it ! This is an experience that we will be talking about for the rest of our lives.

Thank you Fiora! We hope to see you again soon.

Our day with Fiora
Oct 2019 • Friends
We had a wonderful day yesterday with Fiora. Our visit to the market was fun and interesting, collecting ingredients for our day. She then welcomed us into her home and was gracious and informative as well as friendly, fun and relaxed. We had such a nice time preparing stuffed artichokes, fresh pasta with delicious mussels as well as baked stuffed sword fish, which was to die for and a delicious sweet capsicum dish.
We felt like friends sitting around the table to enjoy a thoroughly good meal. To top it off Fiora had made cannoli and filled them at the table. They were fabulous, the best I have ever tasted.
A wonderful way to spend a day in Ortigia, in a relaxed happy and interesting atmosphere. The day flew by to quickly.
It was easy to communicate with Fiora and she was always prompt to answer. A highly recommended activity if you want to enjoy and learn about the local food.

Great day
Sep 2019 • Friends
Fiora was just amazing , we had an great day ! First we went to the Mercato where we bought the ingredients to make our fish based menu . We then went back to Fioras house and proceeded to cook . Not only did we cook an absolutely typical Sicilian banquet but she took us to the best deli in Siracusa. If in Siracusa take a cooking class with this lovely lady who is an amazing cook . She offered a full experience from going to the local market to buy the ingredients to cooking in her own kitchen . I’m from an Italian background ( from a different region in Italy ) so I know that her cooking was very traditional. Thankyou Fiora for a most wonderful experience !!

What a meal!
Sep 2019
This was a wonderful experience. We went with Fiora shopping in the market for fresh fish, vegetables and bread, then went back to her beautiful home and worked with her to prepare what can only be described as a feast. Not only was this educational and amazingly delicious, but it was conducted with the most gracious hospitality imaginable. Fiora is not only a great cook but fun to be with. Worth every Euro cent!

My girlfriend and me had an amazing time with Fiora. We learned a lot and enjoyed being with Fiora and learning Sicilian recipes. Fiora has a passion for what she is doing and you can see it during the cooking class!
