Sicilian cuisine is the style of cooking on the island of Sicily. It shows traces of all cultures that have existed on the island of Sicily over the last two millennia. Although its cuisine has much in common with Italian cuisine, Sicilian food also has Greek, Spanish, French and Arab influences.
Roll up your sleeves, and you will be ready to cook with our local chefs and Nonnas, people who have been handed down the old Sicilian recipes. You’ll be kneading pasta dough, flipping pizzas, frying arancini and cannoli, and whipping up authentic Sicilian dishes in no time.
Our cooking holidays are ideal for solo travellers as more than 70% of client travel solo to our beautiful venues.
