Cooking Classes

 

If you interested in learning more about Sicilian cooking or if you are looking for that perfect holiday gift, consider cooking classes at Eolo.

We offer private Sicilian cooking lessons that incorporate cooking technique instruction with a hands-on approach and a taste of Sicilian culinary history.

Sicily is a cultural crossroads and that is reflected in its contemporary cuisine. Your lesson will be both memorable and educational. Classes are tailored in advance to your cooking skill level. Exact dishes are planned in advance to fit your desires and dietary needs.

Classes accommodate anywhere from two to twenty-five guests. Large group classes are ideal for parties.

Included in the price of each cooking class package is a hands-on learning experience with one of our-chef instructors. After your lesson, you are then invited to enjoy the meal you prepared in our dining room, with a complimentary glass of Sicilian wine, a beer or a soft drink.
