Chinzia is an amazing host who made us feel at home at her beautiful place immediately. Over the course of 3 hours she prepared us the finest of Italian dishes, told us about Sicilian history and culture. She also shared with us valuable secrets about Italian cuisine. But apart from all the fine wines and delicious dishes, she gave us a wonderful time and the sense that we have gained a friend in Sicily.

A perfect experience for hands on learning with a local who cares about sharing her passion for cooking! It was a delight to spend hours with Cinzia sharing our love for Sicilian food and culture. She went out of her way to make sure I had what I needed to be able to do the same back at home. Grazie!!

Had a great time with Cinzia Abate and her family. Made us feel like part of the family. The food was delicious as well. Thank you for the great time

Cinzia was a lovely and very welcoming host. She made sure we felt at home in her home. The cooking class was so relaxed and she explained it all in simple steps, that it was nearly impossible to go wrong. She also told us some funny personal stories and let us taste some sicilian specialities. We (3 friends) would absolutely recommend her as a hostess. We left her home with a warm feeling and especially with a full stomach.
