Cooking at Casa Mia in Palermo

Guests are welcomed with a coffee or aperitivo to get the lesson started. The menu is created with local ingredients, seasonal vegetables and fresh meat, fish and cheeses. 

Casual and fun cooking classes are taught in English with a knowledgeable local cook who will make guests feel welcome like they would in their home kitchen. The class prepares a 3-course meal in a professionally equipped home kitchen.

    We reached out to Casa Mia Tours at the last minute the morning our ship docked in Sicily. Within a few hours they arranged a Sicilian cooking lesson and dinner for us. We had such a wonderful experience.
