    My wife and i had a blast !!! It is a very authentic tour with the best ever street food . Alice is a marvelous guide and she came very well prepared . She even brought with her a touristic guide (Maria Chiara) that explained us the origin of many monuments in Palermo ! It's a must

    If you are wanting an authentic Sicilian meal, and want to learn how to cook it with a knowledgeable, personable, authentic Sicilian cook- then you should do this!! Highly recommend - food was outstanding, learned a LOT about Sicilian food and how to prepare it, and left stuffed!

    What a wonderful experience. Alice is a fabulous hostess and chef. Our dinner and conversation with Alice and Francesco was amazing. We loved helping prepare the pasta, which we hope to try when we get home. You made us feel like family. We will treasure the memory.

    Alice and Francisco were wonderful hosts. From tee moment we entered there abode we felt at home. The food was delicious, each of the 4 courses was a culinary masterpiece. The conversation was absorbing. The market walkthrough was informative. This was a highlight of our monthlong time in Sicily. We give this the highest rating. Thank you both for a wonderful time.

    Alice and her partner Francesco did a fantastic job and we really enjoyed the 2 evenings with them. Seasonal and natural cooking with old and traditional recipes is seldom to find and Alice and Francesco have specialized on that. We went twice and would have gone more often given the time. You find real tradition very seldom in our days. All the best to you both from Eva and Michael-back in Germany.

    "I was passionate about cooking and food since I was a child, accomplices grandmother who loved to cook and the whole family who loves to eat well. I therefore decided to pursue a university career in the field of gastronomy. I have faced a multidisciplinary and holistic path that has treated the world of food at 360 o'clock. I love cooking for my family and for others, starting from the choice of recipes and the selection of ingredients. I like to experiment and I'm particularly passionate about pastry and leavened foods. I do research on ancient cookbooks and asking around, especially older ladies, their family recipes. Sicily, like all Italy, has an invaluable gastronomic heritage, whose recipes and preparations vary from house to house, not only between cities and provinces. This gives the palate the opportunity to enjoy the same traditional dishes with different ingredients, techniques and stories."
