Catania's Traditional Table™

Cooking On Mount Etna With Mamma Salva~One Day Class

Join Mamma Salva in her home kitchen just outside Catania where she cooks every day for her family, relatives and friends. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of a family where recipes have been passed down from great grandmother, continuing with her grandmother and now with Mamma Salva. It’s a family affair in the kitchen as Mamma and her daughters lead you in hands-on cooking, and you will be dicing, chopping, sautéing the Sicilian way!

Each cooking class consists of a traditional Sicilian four-course meal: appetizer, first course (usually pasta or risotto), main course (fish, meat or vegetarian) and dessert. A printed menu is given at each cooking class so you can follow along and take notes. Work alongside Mamma Salva, learn her tricks and techniques and prepare a delicious traditional lunch to enjoy together. Menus are based on fresh seasonal ingredients and can accommodate food allergies and diet needs.

In this historic neighborhood on Mount Etna, Mamma Salva’s home has traditional wood ceilings, antique furniture and a garden where lunch is served (weather permitting). Local Sicilian wines included with lunch.

Cooking class are available anytime from morning to afternoon.
