If you love Italian cuisine and would like to master the art of making it, our cookery holidays are perfect. Combining hands-on lessons with the chance to experience la dolce vita, this trip is exclusive to readers of GH.
The flavours of Sicilian cooking are intertwined with its fascinating history, as various civilisations have left their mark on the island's cuisine. Not only is the food delicious but, due to Sicily's hot summers and mild winters, you'll get to enjoy the Mediterranean climate, too, on this fantastic cooking holiday.
At the villa, which is surrounded by almond and olive trees and features an outdoor swimming pool, you'll learn how to make pasta con le sarde, arancini and cassata. You'll also enjoy day trips to historic sites, such as the Greek Theatre of Syracuse and Baroque towns of Noto and Ragusa.
Plus, a private chef will prepare delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners at the villa and you'll get to try local wines matched with your meals.
