4 day culinary trip & yoga to the South-East of Sicily
Indulge yourself with genuine mediterranian flavours, discover the beautiful Sicilian countryside and learn about this authentic rich culture through its gastronomy with the help of locals.
Our accomodation is in in a picturesqe typical Sicilian “masseira”, a farmhouse in the countryside between the two charming baroque cities, Modica and Scicli. The recently restored building is surronded by century old carobs and olive trees, has a panoramic swimming pool and a beautiful grand kitchen which will provide the venue for one of our cooking classes.
We are inviting you to visit one of Italy’s best olive oil and tomato sauce producers in the countryside of Chiaramonte and to peak behind the curtains guided by the owner as he invites you to taste the best Sicily has to offer. The organic farm beside the olive groves and cypresses has a vineyard with a remarkable wine selection which we will also enjoy during our lunch.
As part of our sightseeing of the delightful city of Modica, we will visit the town’s most famous and oldest chocolate artisan manufactory. Not only we will have the opportunity to taste the delicacies, we are also preparing some delicious sweets.
An authentic gastronomy experience
We will taste and learn about the original preparation methods of some of the most famous Sicilian cheeses such as Ragusano DOP, in a typical traditional farm. To make this experience very special, we can prepare our own provola cheese and fresh ricotta with the help of the owners. These things cannot be bought in shops.
Cooking courses and dinner
Our culinary includes two different types of cooking experiences: firstly the preparation of a traditional course at our accomodation with an experienced local “mamma”, and another cooking class with the chef/owner of a well known restaurant in Scicli. Tips and tricks from the masters of Sicilian cuisine. After both of these cooking classes we are to enjoy a well deserved dinner from the meals prepared together and relax with some local wine.
