If there’s anything to be learned from a trip to Sicily, it’s that the Sicilian’s know their food ; their daily street markets are brimming with delectable treats and street food is a staple as everyone is always eating; whether it’s on the way to work, at lunch time or a late night gelato whilst out for a stroll. In recent years, Sicily has also been moving away from the sweet wines we associate with Madeira and producing fresh new whites and robust reds.

The Anna Tasca Lanza school, set in the Regaleali grand estate that incorporates a working farm and winery, half way between Palermo and Agrigento on the south coast, brings Sicilian cuisine and wine together to teach you how to create a Sicilian feast, and pick the wine to go with it. Anna will take you through how to make Sicilian specialities like Favella (chickpea flower fritters) and the creamy delight that is Cannoli (sweetened ricotta cheese with chocolate chips packed into freshly fried biscuits). You’ll also get the chance to cook lamb and chickens reared on the farm and whip up the simple pasta dishes that are everyday in Sicily but to all other mouths taste simply heavenly. With visits to the local markets and trips around the gorgeous local valleys all washed down with a good measure of local wine, this cultural experience is not to be missed.

Will be visiting Sicily for a few days in late April and early May 2010. What options are there? 1 day cooking class, 2 days, 3 days?


Are classes in English?

We will be visiting Sicily for a few days. Is the cooking class for a few hours on one particular day, and are the instructions in English?
