Even this season, our cookery courses are giving us the chance to meet very interesting people. It is always a pleasure to introduce our guests to the culinary wonders of Sicily and the many other great things the island has to offer.
With many of them, we keep in touch even years after they have visited our school and this is simply fantastic. This said, this post should not come as a surprise to you.

Every season we like to update our culinary tours in the attempt to include always the best food related experiences this area of Sicily has to offer. Now, if you have been to one of our cookery lessons or are familiar with this blog, you already know about my respect for Mastri di San Basilio's work and my appreciation for their extra virgin olive oils, both Riserva and Due Sicilie. Nothing really new about that!
