We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking lesson. The tour of the market was informative, although quite a small market. Giovanni was a very good teacher and we learned how to make macaronis (quite fun), lasagnes, and fish cooked in salt. It was a small friendly group of pupils which made it more fun.

A most enjoyable 4.5hrs. Chef MImmo patiently showed us typical Sicilian food and pasta making after buying the goods from a nearby market. He also sent us the recipes by email. He also offered us prosecco and water. Setting is also excellent. Great and much fun.

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.
