Cooking in Sicily

On the island of Sicily, Italy’s Mediterranean treasure box, you’ll feast your eyes on its history, art and architecture, while learning about its unique and incredibly flavorful food. Cooking in Sicily will immerse you in Sicily’s rich, exotic culinary tradition. You will enjoy Sicilian food and wine, learn about Sicily’s history, share its seasonal bounty and acquire practical cooking techniques in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

Learning to prepare classic Sicilian dishes means learning about what the island has to offer at different times of the year.
