What makes this experience stand apart from others is the benefit of having a chef by your side. As someone who shops daily in the markets, I have the expertise and experience to properly explain the importance of seasonal and regional cuisine, traditional recipes, and the island's most treasured artisanal products. Our interactions with trusted purveyors are enjoyable because the people we work with and choose to support are kind, knowledgable, and reliable. Personal connections are very important here in Sicily. Respect for the people, culture, and land are our utmost priorities.
