Meeting at 10:00 AM at the Arch of Porta Messina, the activity starts with a guided tour of the market of Taormina. Shopping for fresh ingredients, the group will enjoy learning about the local produce and take part in a small tasting of salamis and cheeses. Back at the restaurant the chef will explain the recipes in program while guests take a break for coffee. The preparation and the cooking of the food will then start, with the making of hand-made pasta a highlight.

We were a small group of 6 and given a personalized service. We went to the market and introduced to the ingredients that were to be used for our future recipes. Once at the restaurant, we were well greeted and quickly put to work...the sous-chef was friendly and a great coach. The recipes were not only easy to make but we enjoyed to eat at the end.

Not exactly as expected in the description but turned out ok

The market “tour” is a quick run. Felt very rushed (it’s small) as another class was going to be joining in part of our class. That was a little awkward as we had no idea what was going on. Then a lot of time sitting. Waiting - coffee then waiting. Food was not bad. All traditional and the staff was entertaining. No fancy stuff just basic bread pasta and fish. A ton of food to eat at the end!!
