Italian and Sicilian Cooking in Sicily
Combine learning Italian with cooking and tasting (of course!) Sicilian food. Learn Italian in our school in the mornings, and early evening learn about, prepare and eat an amazing Sicilian meal. When cooking and tasting Sicilian food and Sicilian recipes you will learn how cookery in Sicily has been influenced by Greeks, Arabs, Romans and Spaniards. Cooking in Sicily has the flavor of the waves of the Sicilian ‘Magna Greece’ sea. Sicilian food has the flavor of the tasty and colorful vegetables of the Sicilian soil that Romans introduced with their aqueducts, combined with the huge variety of the Arabic spices and the flavor of the Spanish baroque.
There are two options:
Casaliongua Siclian Cooking Class

You prepare a full meal with first course (pasta, risotto or soup), a second course (vegetarian, meat or fish), side dish (salad or vegetables) and, during the week, one sweet or cake. The price of the course includes dinner with ‘mamma’ and family in her home!
