Excellent course, wonderful teacher, great experience

To be taken through the market by Alessia was an eye opener. She knows everybody there and explains all the produce. She bought food, and we went to a great apartment to cook it. Every step was informative and fun. She is a great teacher and the meal we made in a few hours and then ate was wonderful.

Fantastic Ortigia Market Tour snd Cooking Class with Alessia

When we arrived at Alessia’s home she offered us a coffee and taught us to make homemade pasta, tomato sauce and fried local fish. We had a delicious meal with her son and husband which included local wine and very friendly conversation. It was a fabulous day, and I highly recommend it to all foodies!
