Taormina Cooking Class with Panoramic View


The White Lotus Cooking Experience

Join Emilia in Taormina the home to the infamous TV series The White Lotus.

One of the most well known and stunning towns of Sicily, Taormina sits on a Sicilian hillside overlooking the Ionian Sea and the majestic Mount Etna.

The cooking class will take place in Taormina itself, just a short stroll away from the town centre where we will spend the morning or afternoon cooking, eating and drinking Etna wines together with a panoramic view of the Ionian Sea.

The dishes we make together will be a true representation of Sicily’s recipes. Recipes, which were passed down from one generation to the next, from our Nonni who shared and made for us these dishes so we could never forget the traditions of Sicily though food and its ingredients that have been lovingly grown from local producers.

“Your perspective of your city and Sicily made our experience here so special. It was so much fun to shop with you, make pasta together, and share a wonderful, delicious meal together! It was truly an experience that will remain 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 .
