What People Are Saying About Palermo
It was great to meet Luciano who took us to the market and gave us a choice of menu. He then took us to his home, gave us a delicious glass of wine and then asked if we'd like to cook or if we wanted to watch. We opted to stand on his balcony and look into his kitchen as he skilfully prepared a 3. course dinner with fresh organic food. It was very enjoyable.
We had the most fantastic time from start to finish during our cooking lesson. Patrizia was so warm and welcoming, she really made the experience wonderful. We journeyed through the market, where she pointed out different local treats, and we got to stop and try some local cheeses and street food. She also acted as a tour guide, giving us a great insight into where the locals go to eat, drink, and be merry. We then went back to the beautiful flat to start cooking. The recipes were simple to follow, and Patrizia gave us lots of little tips for getting the best out of the ingredients. The food was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed local wines to go alongside our meal, with details about the wineries, and history of the production. All in all we couldn't recommend the experience any more. Not only were we well fed, filled with interesting information, and had a much better understanding of Sicily, but we left feeling we'd made a friend. Thank you!
The guide was superb, took us shopping for the ingredients and was a natural born cook who took the time to explain each step, what she was doing and why, the food was delicious and the experience one of our best in our whole visit to Sicily!
We loved our time at the cooking class. Her flexibility entertaining our requests was smooth and very accommodating. It was entertaining, informative and personal. This is an unforgettable experience. Her instant Sicilian warmth left us feeling we just visited a long lost relative. The lunch was awesome. This is/was both a "must-do" and a "don't miss". You'll want to save time for this great time. You won't regret it!
Do as we did: do this early in the time you are on the island. It's a great way to get to know Sicily better. The chef and guide (one person) we had was wonderful and adjusted everything to our needs. This was a gift from me to my girlfriend. I recomend you do the same if you're thinking about treating you loved one to a great date.
