Foraging & Cooking Mushrooms on Mount Etna


Coming Soon…. Foraging & cooking mushrooms on Mount Etna 
Mount Etna one of the most iconic, active and monitored Volcanoes in the world is located on the east coast of Sicily. A short drive away from Catania and Taormina, the village famous for filming the TV series White Lotus, Etna is a stunning location for your holiday in Sicily.

Not only for the drive but with the volcanic rich soils full of minerals and the climate which dramatically changes in temperature from day to night provides Etna with a terroir bursting with quality wines, mushrooms and fully packed produce.

Join Emilia, for a morning of mushroom foraging in the surrounding area of Mount Etna and then take a short drive back to a local kitchen where together you will cook with the mushrooms. Enjoy and relax to a sit down long lunch all whist drinking and talking wines of the Mount Etna.

We are back in San Francisco sharing our stories about the recent travels. Thanks so much for making such happy memories for us! Being with you was a highlight of our trip!

  • About your host

    Our Founder: Emilia is proud to showcase the food & wine artisans of Sicily who strive to continue Sicilian traditions and pass them down to the next generation just as her Sicilian grandparents did for her growing up in the UK. Although Emilia’s experience takes her from cooking for the royal family in London, to a 3 Michelin star patisserie in Paris and a luxury 5 star hotel in Milan with a lot of fresh pasta making, Emilia has chosen to return back to her roots in Sicilian cuisine.

    Emilia cooks dishes she learnt growing up from her Nonni “Come una volta” (how they used to it) using only locally sourced ingredients from Sicily, including Sicilian natural wine. Emilia cooks traditional Sicilian recipes but always using her professional training, discipline & knowledge about Sicily behind her dishes too .
