Michelin-starred tips and techniques in Taormina


We’ve teamed up with Pietro D’Agostino, Michelin-starred chef at La Capinera in Taormina, to offer a gastronomic experience not to be missed.

Having worked all over the world and cooked for Queen Elizabeth II and the Sultan of Brunei amongst others, Pietro D'Agostino returned to his home town of Taormina to unite his well-honed skills with Sicily’s best organic ingredients.

Pietro and food and travel writer Maria Laura Crescimano will meet you at Porta Messina (we suggest your park at Parcheggio Lumbi) and whisk you off to the market. There, you'll discover the best local, organic ingredients and purchase some fish, fruit, vegetables and bread for the workshop. You'll then head back to Pietro’s Cooking Lab in the centre of Taormina for a demonstration of his culinary art, inspired by the Mediterranean diet. After which, you’ll be able to taste the dishes prepared along with a selection of olive oils and some wines from Mount Etna.

Length: approx. 4 hours, from 9.30am to 1.30pm
