    Anna was very responsive to us, conjured up a delicious dinner with us (tagliatelle with pak choi and caponata) and also gave us great tips for our stay in Catania. We learned a lot about the country and its people that evening in a very personal atmosphere. Absolutely to recommend!!!

    The meeting point is NOT where it’s supposed to be held at but it wasn’t a big issue, we had to walk another 5 minutes to find the place. The lady was super nice and hospitable, the area was very clean and she prepped prior to us getting there. We made fresh pasta, a salad and she provided bread and wine. Dinner was absolutely delicious and wonderful.

    My husband and I enjoyed our time with Anna! She was a great host and amazing cook. Her passion for food is evident in her explanations in different types of food, wheat, flour... Apparently food runs in her family's blood! We made a delicious caponata, trapanese pesto and fresh pasta. She made us work for our lunch which is exactly what we look for in a cooking class. Definitely recommend her!
