Today, you’ll embark on a journey towards the hilltop city of Ragusa, stopping at an ancient baroque estate on the way to tour the vineyards and learn about the region’s traditional winemaking techniques. Here, you’ll take part in another wine tasting, pairing the estate’s finest wares with an array of classic Sicilian appetizers, such as Caciocavallo Ragusano DOP cheese, dressed Sicilian olives and white focaccia bread. You’ll also have a chance to explore the gorgeous city of Noto before reaching Ragusa.
That same afternoon, you’ll take part in a hands-on cooking experience with a local chef. After a welcome cocktail, three hours of tuition will ensue, giving you the chance to discover the secret trick behind homemade pasta, learn how to perfect your sauces and gain a comprehensive knowledge of the cuts of meat and value of different vegetables. This class will also feature a visit to a nearby fish market and a session on the preparation of Sicilian desserts.
Finally, you’ll end the day at your new hotel – a historic Sicilian villa with views overlooking the countryside and Mediterranean.
