Visiting the heart of Palermo has never been so yummy! This private tour of Palermo takes you to one of the best food markets in town, where you will be guided by our expert chef while you will look for the best local products to make three typical Sicilian recipes.


Discover the delights of Mercato del Capo

If you can’t help but discover the gastronomic realities of the places you go visit, this private cooking class with a stop at the food market in Palermo is what suits you best. The personalized attention of our professional and charismatic chef will guide you among the lanes and the alleys of mercato del capo, showing you the best stands to go looking for the freshest products. There are also stands where you can savor the tastiest Sicilian street food like  arancine, cannoli, and much more! But the main purpose of the mercato tour is to choose all the ingredients for the cooking lesson you will attend later on at the cooking school, so be prepared to follow our chef’s instructions to pick the nicest food.

Time to cook Palermo’s specialties

How to delve into Sicilian gastronomic culture? The best way is to put yourself again in our chef’s hands and follow his instructions to prepare a three course meal which includes the most iconic delicacies of the Sicilian land. You will cook traditional dishes depending on the seasonal ingredients you have on hand. Among the famous Sicilian specialties, you will be able to prepare "arancine" ( and be very careful not to call them arancini here in Palermo!)fried rice balls filled with a sauce that is ragù-like, and peas. Another option could be a dish that enriches the Italian repertoire of pasta recipes, namely pasta alla norma, made with a very tasty tomato sauce, fried eggplant and the typical Sicilian ricotta salata. How to end on a high note if not with a delicious dessert? The typical Sicilian one is the cannolo, made with a crispy wafer filled with sweet ricotta. Join this cooking class in Palermo and discover all the secrets behind the traditional recipes 

Savor the entire meal prepared by you 

The best moment of the cooking class has come, when you sit down and sample the delicacies you’ve put your hands on in our brand new cooking school in Palermo. There’s no better way to celebrate the end of this experience than by tasting the dishes you put all your effort into preparing, and surely the taste will repay any effort! If you are afraid of forgetting the recipes you have made, don't worry! You will be given a free cookbook with which you can replicate all the recipes of this cooking class.


Please note that when the market is closed a stroll around the market streets and some street food tasting will substitute instead.
