We had a really good time cooking sicilian food (sicilian empanada, arancini and tiramisú) with Teresa. What I liked most about it, was to cook in her kitchen at home, which made it even more authentic. We booked this event on short term notice (evening before) and she still took into account that we are vegetarians. I would do this again any time.

Teresa provided a good lesson on some great Sicilian dishes. Very interesting to learn the recipes and get to cook them yourself…..and best of all you sit down and enjoy your own cooking over a glass of wine.....very welcoming and comfy surroundings …highly reccommend.

Exciting and fun experience for adults and children alike. It was authentic and nice to see a typical Sicilian home. We went as a family of 4 with 2 children (aged 10 and 12) and we all very much enjoyed it. The recipes were easy to follow. We made aubergine meatballs, ravioli, tagliatelle and almond frost for dessert. The sit down meal at the end was delicious and very filling (no need to have breakfast).

Teresa was very welcoming to us (group of 4) and gave us a real insight to Sicilian food. We had hands on experience and she catered too for the 2 vegetarians. Make sure you are hungry before you go! Lots of food!
