WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
This private day trip will give you the opportunity to be a chef for one day, discovering some of the most genuine food gem of our land and enjoying an authentic experience in the beauty countryside of Sicily south-east coast. Starting from Siracusa, a sightseeing drive will lead you along the countryside, the hills and the vineyards towards the Noto valley to reach our wonderful location: an ancient watermill, surrounded by streams, waterfalls, and small lakes with breathtaking colors.
Led by the expertise of our Chef, you will start putting your hands on the ingredients to create your own meal choosing among the Sicilian recipes of the different menus available (options available on request).
There is the opportunity (at additional cost to require at time of booking), a local farmer will offer you a real demonstration of how to work diligently with milk to produce fresh cheese, delicious Ricotta cheese, and other typical Sicilian cheeses, into the rustic patio of the watermill. You will enjoy the best cheese-making demonstration in Sicily.
From the first drop of milk to the delicious final products. A selection of Sicilian wines completes the menu, and then you will enjoy eating your own food with all your classmates in the relaxing peace of the terrace, with the wonderful view of the falls and the smooth sound of the gurgling streams in the background.
After lunch, our English-speaking driver will take you to the amazing Palazzolo Acreide, an ancient Greek town founded in 650 BC, with a perfectly preserved Greek theater and a downtown built in Barocco style, with two of the churches that recently became UNESCO heritage. You will enjoy a nice walk in the old town, with many options to taste refreshing drinks, ice cream and almond pastry from the old Sicilian culinary tradition.
Afterword we will be ready to drive you back to your hotel, where you will arrive in approximately 45 minutes.
