North West Sicily - The Regaleali Estate
This well known country estate offers an exportation of Sicilian cuisine through hands-on cooking classes and garden workshops, lectures, local field trips on site, along with a one-week culinary journey around the island if you would prefer to get to know the whole region. Guest experts include professors, culinary and horticultural specialists, as well as local artisans who come to enhance the cookery and food experience.
Led by one of the school’s expert chefs, our culinary course immerses participants in the stories, landscapes, and flavors of Sicily in the experiential ‘arm’-to-table style. The course includes lessons in horticulture and cheese making, from wine production to coffee roasting, and excursions to surrounding towns to experience the diverse cultures and food of the island. Visit Marsala, the island of Mozia and Trapani for seafood cous cous and Phoenician ruins. Palermo with its fabulous food markets, restaurants and history is about one and a half hours' drive away.
