Cooking at Casa Mia in Palermo

A professionally led cooking class held in a private setting in Palermo.

Jump into the kitchen and learn about Sicilian cuisine the best way possible: with a hands-on cooking lesson.

Guests meet their chef at the outdoor food market, where they can source ingredients for their hands-on cucina siciliana cooking lesson.

After chatting with the local vendors and picking up ingredients for the recipes, our trusted cook takes guests back to the kitchen for a cooking lesson.

Guests are welcomed with a coffee or aperitivo to get the class started. The menu is created with local ingredients, seasonal vegetables, 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 full meal in a professionally equipped kitchen.

The cooking lesson ends with a full meal created together, paired with Sicilian wine.

    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.
