Taste Sicily

sicily-italy-gastro-tour

A Sicily tour taking in the highlights of the island's varied cuisine and historical sites is led by cultural specialist Marcello Baglioni and archaeologist Dr. Michael Metcalfe. There are cooking classes, opportunities to visit local producers of cheeses, olives, honey and wines, and numerous tastings including a demonstration and tasting of traditional Modicano chocolate. Other highlights include exploring historic Syracuse, the beautiful town of Noto, renowned for its Baroque architecture and a walk on Mt. Etna with an expert volcanologist.

Eastern Sicily is home to a vibrant culinary tradition that mixes delicious local produce with cooking styles drawn from its many foreign rulers, from the Byzantines to the Arabs and from the Normans to the Spanish.The rolling hills and fertile plains produce seemingly unlimited quantities of fresh fruit, nuts and vegetables, while abundant flocks and herds produce delicious cheeses and meats. These riches are surrounded by rich fishing grounds, filling the market stalls with an enormous range of marine delicacies. To complete the picture, Sicily now produces some of the most highly regarded new wines in Europe, the perfect accompaniment to its long-renowned ices, fruit drinks and digestifs. This veritable cornucopia of delights provides all the ingredients for a magnificent voyage of cultural and gastronomic discovery.
