Cooking at Casa Mia in Modica

A professionally led cooking class held in a private home in Modica, Sicily.

The best way to learn about a region’s cuisine is to get into the kitchen and have a hands-on cooking lesson with a local. In Modica, we offer a very special Casa Mia experience in the heart of southeast Sicily.

The stunning baroque town of Modica is not only one of Italy’s UNESCO Heritage Sites, it is a cultural hub for cuisine, literature, art and architecture.

Just steps above the main street in baroque Modica is a bright open kitchen waiting to be filled with delicious aromas of regional rolled and folded “pizzas” like scaccia or tomasini, fresh ravioli with marjoram and ricotta, quaresimali almond biscotti, or cannoli speckled with Modica’s world famous chocolate. 

Casual fun cooking classes are taught in English with a knowledgeable local cook who makes guests feel at home in her 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.
