The Thinking Traveller, Sicily
The Thinking Traveller organises a variety of fine-dining cookery schools for guests staying in one of their villas. In Palazzo Lanza Tomasi - a beautiful mid-18th century palace – guests are taught how to cook some typically Sicilian dishes, from buying the ingredients for your class at Palermo’s markets, to being taught how to make traditional Sicilian recipes by the Duchess of Palma’s daughter-in-law.
Cooking lesson with Katia Amore - one of Sicily’s best cookery teachers and food experts – in Modica gives you the opportunity to get to grips with the area’s produce, and marry all the flavours to create your own menu. Later, your feast is yours to enjoy, accompanied by some excellent Sicilian wines.
Also on offer is a hands on cooking lesson, wine tasting and oil tasting with Planeta’s La Foresteria in Menfi, amongst rolling hills, with sea views and vineyards. Here Chef Angelo Pumilia guides you through some of the tastiest traditional Sicilian recipes, and gives you a tour of the beautiful area.
