Traditional Sicilian cuisine is unrivalled thanks to the freshness of the ingredients and the passion that Sicilian's pour into their cooking! On your holiday in Sicily, why not enjoy a Sicilian cooking class in the vibrant capital of Palermo?

Bellarome's Sicilian cooking classes in Palermo typically last between 2 and 8 hours and depend on the level and skills of the participants and on how long you wish to spend enjoying the fruits of your labour.

A typical itinerary is as follows:

  • visit Le Cuoche in Dispensa, one of Palermo’s historic markets, to buy fresh ingredients
  • enjoy a welcome snack prepared by a professional chef
  • cook a delicious evening meal under the supervision of qualified chefs
  • enjoy your meal with local wine

What dishes will be prepared?

Below is a selection of the typical dishes that may be prepared during a Sicilian cooking class (they vary with the season):

  • Panelle e Crocchè o “Cazzilli”: the most popular Sicilan snack made from thin sheets of chickpea flour
  • Caponata Siciliana: made with fresh aubergine
  • Parmigiana di Melanzane: the ultimate Sicilan dish, made with layers of soft aubergine, tomatoes and cheese (find a recipe here)
