Wonderful evening, perfect balance of cooking and relaxing
Aug 2020
We had an absolutely magical evening with Louisa and her team at Villa Britannia. It was in Mid August 2020 so Covid-19 protections were in full effect - we were the only family taking part in the class, masks were worn for the indoor components, but not required on the beautiful terrace.
It was a relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of relaxing between cooking components - just the right balance.
The Villa Britannia is a very special place and Louisa and her team effortlessly put you at your ease, make you feel welcome and at home.
Hope we see you again soon if we visit the gorgeous Taormina again some day.

Authentic Sicilian Cooking in a beautiful Villa
Aug 2020
We did a private cooking class for our family group of 7 and can't thank Louisa, Marco and team enough for a fabulous evening. A delicious menu of arancini, pasta, involtini etc.... enough "hands on" to inspire our future cooking and to keep our younger participants engaged but also plenty of time to enjoy the view and beautiful surroundings of the villa with a steady stream of drinks. Delicious wines alongside the delicious food. Thank you for a fabulous experience. Good luck with the future.

Terrific Zoom Cookery Class
Jul 2020
The zoom cookery class was top notch. We were shown how to make pea and broad bean fettucine, flambeed crepes with orange and a courgette soup - all so colourful and looked delicious. If only we could have got a taste or even a scent. The presentation was superb and all that is left now is to get cooking. Highly recommended and thank you.

amazing vegetarian lesson
Jun 2020
I really only have words of thankfulness for Louisa and Elvira because was such a beautiful experience to take their vegetarian cooking class. Louisa is cool, very nice, attentive, an excellent host and speaks very clearly. Elvira cooks simple and delicious dishes. Watching her cook makes you want to make the dish yourself! It is practical and easy to learn. Thanks for having made me feel so comfortable! Whoever wants to get to know the best of Sicily just needs to do one of their classes!

Fantastic Cooking Class and Beautiful People
Sep 2019
We were lucky enough to be staying at Villa Britannia and had chosen our accommodation because they had the cooking classes. What a fantastic choice for both!
My sister and I did the cooking class with Louisa and Chef Elvira. I can't recommend it highly enough. It was so much fun, enjoying a sparkling wine and antipasto after our first part of the prep but more than fun as we learnt so much - even how to make pasta - all by hand - no machine used at all. We also learnt alot of tips including preparing and cooking with eggplant, making passatta, crumbing without egg and flour. It was amazaing! Louisa and Elvira were very patient also if we couldn't get the hang of something straight away.
After the lesson we (my sister and I and our 2 new friends from the class) had lots of laughs as we were waited on with beautiful wines to match our 5 course meal by Lousia and her husband Marco. It was like being in a 5 star restaurant with the amazing setting and most beautiful views.
Exceptional hospitality!!!

Amazing experience
Oct 2019
My sisters and I took the cooking class at Villa Britannia. It was so amazing!. We learned course after course, with an awesome chef. The food was the best I have ever eaten. Louisa is an excellent translator and provides so much information. Couldn't recommend this experience enough, it was a highlight of our trip.

Wonderful evening to learn about the food and culture of Sicily!
Oct 2019
We were fortunate enough to sign up for Villa Britannia Cooking Classes. The villa was steps away from the sister Villa Aurora that was our Taormina home for 5 days. Nino walked us up the gorgeous Villa and introduced us to his daughter Louisa. Louisa conducted the class with a great spirit and enthusiasm for teaching us as well as educating us on the food and culture of Sicily. Chef Elvira showed us many techniques - including a great meat mallet and ricer! The tips on eggplant will solve my soggy eggplant dish problems! The setting was gorgeous. The wine was paired by Louisa's husband Marco who is a sommelier who paired the local wines expertly.
What a great end to our trip to Sicily. We highly recommend this indulgence!!

Such an amazing experience!!!
Oct 2019
Our cooking class at Villa Britannia was one of the highlights of our visit to Taormina! Louisa was so welcoming and had such a great personality. She and Chef Elvira gave us a wonderful hands-on experience making some absolutely delicious dishes while sipping on some fabulous wines! Everything was awesome, but the Busiate alla Norma was my favorite dish!! This was the first time I ever made home-made pasta! The Villa was gorgeous, and the view from the terrace where we enjoyed our yummy meal was beautiful! Such an incredible experience from start to finish!! Great memories made!

A warm welcome and amazing food
Oct 2019
Of the many unforgettable experiences on our trip to Sicily, the cooking class at Villa Britannia was the highlight. Louisa was effervescent and clearly passionate about her home, and Chef Elvira's meal was unbelievably delicious. The wine, the food, the company, and the conviviality combined to create a memorable experience that I'll never forget. I'm hoping to come back with my family.
