On Mount Etna
Your instructor for the hands on cooking classes will be Eleonora Consoli. She is the author of Sicily - La Cucina del Sole and many other cookbooks. The courses are held in her typical Sicilian home dating from the 18th century, in one of the most characteristic villages on the slopes of Mt. Etna. Classes will be based on well-known Sicilian recipes, paying
particular attention to pasta, fish and vegetables. Eleonora combines
the cooking class with the culture, traditions, habits and customs from
which the cuisine has evolved.

In Agrigento
Mrs. Silvia Di Vincenzo offers special cooking courses for her guests, in
which she emphasizes typical ingredients and tasty traditional recipes,
as well as revealing the little tricks of Sicilian cuisine. Her favorite recipes
are anelletti al forno (baked pasta rings), pasta con le sarde (with sardines), polpettone (Italian meatloaf), stir-fry “da strada” (“on the road”), and especially desserts with almonds or ricotta cheese.
