What you'll do

Our online experience offers a unique opportunity to submerge yourself in the authentic Sicilian Traditional food culture with a step-by-step cooking class!
From the kitchen of our Farm, in Sicily, where we live, will teach you how to make simple recipes and share information about what we grow here in Sicily and what it means to run a little organic farm in Sicily today. Make Pasta or other recipes with us while learning about the roots of Sicilian Food and Ingredients.
At this time we will prepare "Cavatelli", a traditional shape of pasta, in a Sicilian "sugo" tomato passata and vegetables. But we can change it according to the season, so don't hesitate to ask if you have special requests — for example, gnocchi, ravioli, and all typical Mediterranean dishes.
Looking for a vegan option? “Cucina Povera” (Peasant Cooking) is often Vegan itself and comes from our old kitchen traditions. We’d really like to share these recipes with you!

All recipes come from the traditional heritage of Southern Italian gastronomy where the Mediterranean Diet came from. A huge amount of traditions and combinations with unique tastes — and so easy to make.
We will enjoy our time cooking together -- making a fresh meal is always the best choice.
GREAT FOR GROUPS, TEAM BUILDING, FAMILIES

My girlfriend Annarella and I are both passionate Farmers who decided to take care of our families' lands 15 years ago. We love cooking and meeting new people and soon, our Farm became the perfect place to do this. Our mission is to share our love of Sicilian Mediterranean culture and culinary traditions. In addition to producing our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we also produce almonds, citrus, bread, jams with the fruits that we grow, tomato sauce, spirits and many other things on our Bio Farm.

It was fun joing Fabios pasta class. We made a delicious Sugo and fresh pasta! Fabio also showed us his farm which is organic. I can recommend this way of doing cooking classes during the pandemic!

This experience was so fun for our family! During COVID and living far apart these experiences have brought us together. Fabio and Annarella did a fantastic job teaching us and giving us true flavor of Sicilian culture!

What a great way to celebrate a birthday with distant family! Fabio is very personable and has a very relaxed style, making everyone feel comfortable. Not only did we learn about how to make pasta and pesto, we learned about his organic farm and the region of Sicily where he lives, and he also gave us a good sense of both Sicilian and Italian culture. The cooking lesson was a great deal of fun. We definitely recommend cooking with Fabio. Even better would be to visit him at his organic farm in Noto.

Fabio and Anarella are great hosts and fantastic people for you to meet! They are so friendly and they share all their passion about Sicily, food and farming traditions. My husband and I have cooked together to celebrate our birthdays!. The menu was a ravioli with tomato sauce (they can adjust on demand and according to the season). Even our daughter (who is 4) were around and had a lot of fun. It was a special family moment! And we absolutely want to visit them personally as soon as possible! Book now and you will have fun!

I am a better person thanks to Fabio and his partner, no joke! I never dreamed that I would be able to make pesto, or fresh pasta from scratch, and now I can say that I can, and I did, And it tasted good! Fabio was patient and funny along with his partner, and I recommend this class to every single person who is reading this review. I am so excited to share this with my friends and family - it’s a great value for the cost, and I know what I’m giving all of my friends and family for Christmas!
