Have you ever dreamt about learning to cook in a real Sicilian kitchen? If yes is the answer, then this is the experience you’ve been dreaming about. Spend an entire morning in the company of a chef who’s passion brought him to Palermo to discover the art of classical Sicilian cuisine. In the company of your colleagues explore the city’s markets and food stalls. Wander the narrow lanes and backstreets as you choose your ingredients, before returning to the chef’s kitchen where you will be introduced to the secrets of Sicilian cuisine, such as, traditional pasta with sardines.
It might surprise you that your culinary guide is not Sicilian but an Irishman, however, don’t let that put you off, Michael’s heart and his love of Sicilian cuisine - and it’s preservation - is deeply embedded in his veins. After a love affair with Sicilian food, the chef signed up in the famous Alma di Colorno cookery school. This began a long and passionate love affair, with Sicily, its people, its food, and the preservation of age-old recipes. On this amazing journey through Palermo, its markets, its food, and into the kitchen where you too will learn to make the dishes so beloved by Sicilians, you will be in the careful hands of one who treasures his art and the stories behind their creation. In fact, his passion is so infectious he has passed it on to a team of equally capable chefs who may also be on-hand to lead you through the experience.
