Sharing passion for food
Oct. 2019
Domenico was so engaging and eager to share his knowledge of Sicilian cuisine. He must have done this many times, but it felt very fresh and lively. Great value for money, making food from scratch, plenty of provided, and caffe, went well over time, did not feel like there was a clock ticking. Relaxing, fun and educational.

This was a fantastic experience! Our host was lovely and the class was a delight. We toured the local market to purchase our fresh ingredients, prepared a three-course meal in a relaxed, yet informative way, and enjoyed food and wine with new friends in this garden kitchen. I would recommend this to anyone!!!

Amazing cooking experience!
Jul. 2019 • Couples
One of the best things we did in Sicily!! We started with a visit to the local market guided by Chef Mimmo,where we bought local vegetables and fish for our menu, then spent several hours learning to make fresh pasta, caponata, and a Sicilian fish dish. Mimmo is very knowledgeable and the rest of the team - which included his mom who taught him to cook - was very welcoming, offering espresso and wine refills throughout. The food was truly delicious. The setting is gorgeous too - outdoors in a covered restaurant rather than a hot kitchen. An delightful experience!

We met Chef Mimmo (Dominic) and he took us directly to the wonderful market where we picked up our fresh vegetables and seafood. Our class was held at his family restaurant which is lovely. We made different types of fresh pasta from scratch, pesto sauce, caponata, and a most delicious seafood dish. Mimmo is a warm and excellent instructor. The atmosphere, food and service was top shelf! Our food was the best that we had in Taormina. Highly recommended!!!

Brilliant day !!
Aug. 2019
We did this cookery day with our 19 year old daughter, and there were only 2 other people with us. The day began with a visit to the market which was very atmospheric. We then went to the restaurant as described where we learnt how to make delicious fresh pasta and other Sicilian dishes. (All washed down with a very nice Sicilian wine)
Initially I had worried that it would be too hot cooking in the Sicilian heat, but was delighted to discover that we actually cooked on a beautiful breezy outdoor terrace. The whole thing exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend this (although not for young children). One of my top days out !!

My mother and I truly enjoyed the company of Christina and Christina while learning from Domenico. He is a wonderful teacher! Every step was explained along with the reason behind it. The trip to the market was very interesting. Domenico...if you offer a different course, I would love to be your student again! ~Sandy Nevins
