Know More about this tour

There is plenty for tourists to take in at the Ortigia market in Syracuse, Sicily: the distinctly southern Italian hum of the crowd; spices and vegetables so diverse they could color a rainbow and the calm blue sea in the distance. But just wandering around this site, where Archimedes is said to have once helped the Greeks fight the Romans, and buying a few peaches is not the sort of authentic culinary experience that many visitors seek. That is where chef Lele steps in. He leads gastronomy-focused travelers around to teach them how to shop and then prepare delicious Sicilian food.

The ingredients you buy, will be brought back to the kitchen to cook your meal. The menu varies according to seasonal products, here is an example: Sicilian eggplant meatballs, spaghetti with zucchini and mint, tuna with caramelized onions (an old Sicilian recipe), and spinach.

    I paid 176USD and was not worth it. Was not English speaking and no professional chef. Because Anna spoke no English both the market tour and the class were difficult. We made 1 portion of fresh pasta each and no other cooking or instruction. All food was prepared and made by Anna and her husband. No recipes at the end of the day. Although pleasant hosts this was simply not worth the money

    Lele was wonderful. We sent our two girls to his cooking class and they had such a great time. They learned a great deal about seafood in general and about Sicilian cooking. Lele was an incredible host.
