WHY JOIN OUR SICILY LOVERS’ VIRTUAL EVENT?

You will join an interactive live cooking class based on the most delicious Sicilian dishes. A local cook who has a great knowledge of Sicilian cuisine will be glad to share some of the secrets of our excellent culinary tradition.

This is an opportunity to connect with amazing people like you who share a deep love for Sicily. Cooking and sharing a meal together are a great way to establish new relationships and create a convivial atmosphere.

You will experience an outstanding and enjoyable virtual event while remaining within the comfort and safety of your home.

You will be contributing to the preservation of authentic Sicilian cuisine and you will become a proud ambassador of the Sicilian culinary tradition.

You will enjoy a memorable Sicilian meal. At the end of the cooking class we will all eat together and discuss all the things we love about Sicily! This is not only a simple cooking class, but it is a special way to stay connected!

If you have a Sicilian origin and maybe you grew up watching your grandmother cooking, this will be an opportunity to reminisce and rediscover the flavors and special moments of your childhood.

WHAT TO EXPECT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our cooking events are ideal for everyone:

– Experienced and novice cooks
– Both men and women
– Any age group.

Whether you are passionate about cooking or not, you will love the experience of cooking alongside renowned Sicilian cook Maria and then dining with fellow Sicily Lovers.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

DRESS CODE

It will be a funny interactive live event. You are at home and so comfort is the guide line to follow.

 

Even if your webcam is active, don’t worry: the screen will mainly show the local cook at work and you decide if you want to share your house’s images or the results of your work with the rest of the group.

 

If you have a Sicilian item or accessory, bring it to the table with you!

WHO WILL YOUR TEACHER BE?

Giuseppe_Chef_bis

Giuseppe is a friendly and proud native Sicilian Chef.

He’s a passionate cook who offers traditional Sicilian cooking classes and culinary events.

Giuseppe has been cooking since he was a child and is now a renowned Chef.

He is the official ambassador of the Madonie Park institution (a net of the most beautiful villages in the Madonie area) and its food excellencies.

Every year Giuseppe, along with Valeria, his lovely girlfriend, travel to the USA to promote Sicilian cuisine.

Giuseppe will share his mother’s traditional recipes and will show you the finest methods for preparing traditional Sicilian food.


Giuseppe and Valeria will be with us live from their kitchen and guide you step by step in the preparation of two world famous Sicilian dishes!



WHAT WE WILL PREPARE TOGETHER?

Christmas is coming and so we’ll prepare two dishes that must be on our tables on Christmas day.

We will prepare “Brociolone”, a meat dish (also know as “Falsomagro”), and “Buccellati” (“Cucciddati” in Sicilian language), some typical pastries.

They are two of many masterpieces that Sicilian cuisine has to offer you and are to die for!

This virtual event will also be an opportunity to celebrate and exchange greetings for the upcoming Christmas season in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

 

We all are very excited and we can’t wait to meet you!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Each access (entry ticket) costs EUR 34 (current dollar rate: 39 USD) for each connected device and includes anyone in your household.

 

There is no limit on how many people can join the event using one device: the more, the merrier!

 

Each device can have only one access, but you can participate with your loved ones, your family, and your friends.

 

Invite them over to your house so we can share this opportunity all together!

 

Just to be clear, you must buy one ticket per household therefore, if you are all in the same house you just need to buy one ticket, otherwise you will need to buy one ticket per house.

 

If you live in different places, this will be your chance to meet virtually.

WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO BOOK YOUR ACCESS TO THE EVENT?

You can easily book your participation by making a payment via PayPal if you have an account or using a credit/debit card through PayPal (the most trustworthy of all online payment systems).

 

Spots are limited to a maximum of 25 participating devices for each event therefore, we suggest you reserve your access as soon as possible.

 

In any case, the deadline to join will be set to three days before the event takes place.

 

This is because we will have to send you the list of ingredients to buy, the instructions on how to join, and the video tutorial on the recipes that we will prepare all together.

GET ready for the feast!

OUR REVIEWS

What a wonderful experience, we enjoyed every minute!

Meeting everyone and being all together virtually was the next best thing to being there in person.

I want to thank you for the wonderful day we spent together with you.

My friend Janet also enjoyed the day so much that she has decided to apply for recognition of her Italian citizenship through her Calabrese grandfather.

So you can congratulate yourselves on creating an excellent experience that has inspired one more person of southern Italian descent to connect with her heritage!
As an entrepreneur myself, I really congratulate you on the creative ways you are keeping your clients and potential clients connected with Sicilia via the cooking classes and the virtual ancestry tour.

Complimenti!

    Desde Chile mi hijo y mi nieto mayor pasamos una semana inolvidable en Sicilia. Una experiencia inolvidable donde la excelente atención de Giancarmine y su team superó mis expectativas.

    Uno de los mejores tours y servicios que he tenido entre los múltiples viajes y sitios recorridos a lo largo de mis 70 años.
    Las dos guías que nos acompañaron tenían excelente español y conocimientos de historia.

    La puntualidad en los servicios y cortés atención a nuestras peticiones realmente destacables.
    La relación precio/servicios y la elección del hotel donde alojamos fue muy adecuada.
    Le ecomendamos sin reservas.

    As part of an international team, it was quite brainless to select Sicily for our corporate event.

     

    The island is a melting polt of cultures and so it is our team with its members coming from all over the world.

     

    We were pointed to Best Things to Do in Sicily for our event and couldn’t be happier with the result.

    Giancarmine and his team delivered a flawless experience. His knowledge, patient and attention to details has made our trip one for the books.

     

    I strongly suggest Best Things to Do in Sicily if you plan to immerse yourself in the beauty of this unique land.

    I just came back from Beautiful Sicily.

    I went there looking for my family. Well we’re not quite there yet, but thanks to Gianca and Rosella I met people that could very well be my cousins.
    The tour they put together for me was so Amazing. Everything was so organized,the on time pick up, the friendly English speaking drivers, the restaurants, the sites and views were just breathtaking.
    Folks, don’t try to do a tour yourself, and certainly don’t try to drive in Sicily. Sit back, relax, and leave the tour to the people that do it the best. “ Best Things To Do in Sicily “
    I’m hoping to go back next year.
    Oh! Don’t forget to do an amazing Sicilian cooking lesson with Maria. OMG dishes to die for.

    My husband Jeff and I are from NY and recently took our first trip to Sicily.

    Thanks to Gianca and Rosella for helping us to make the most out of our visit.

    We contacted them through Facebook and immediately began a wonderful relationship.

    They suggested meaningful and authentic experiences in Sicily and then organized everything.

    Our most memorable experience was an afternoon with Maria, our new “adopted” grandmother at her home in Sicily.

    She taught us how to cook and prepare a delicious authentic Sicilian meal.
    It is important for you all who read this to know that Gianca and Rosella were the BEST tour organizers! Everything we did was perfect!

    Drivers, tour guides, pick up times and communication was precise!

    Even more special was the personal touch they added to our trip.

    Our first day in Sicily we were met and welcomed by Gianca and Rosella in the lobby of our hotel.

    They joined us on our tour of Taormina and then took us for drinks after! We feel like they are family because of the way they treated us!

    Gianca and Rosella have beautiful warm personalities who truly made our trip very special.

    Thank you Gianca and Rosella! We will see you again one day for sure!

    My husband and I and our 2 dear friends recently spent 6 days in Sicily.

    Although Sicilian, this was my first visit.

    I started emailing Gianca in late 2018 and he was a wealth of information providing us with suggestions and options.

    With the help of Rosella and Gianca we went to Pachino, my parents hometown and visited my Godmother whom I hadn’t seen since I was 5.

    If you’re visiting Sicily and you should, you must book a tour with Gianca and Rosella and if you’re lucky enough to have them join you like we were, I promise it will be a day filled with gorgeous sites and even better company!

    Much love from your Canadian friends!!

    Sicily 2020 as a trip of a life time! Rosella and Gianca of “Round Trip Consulting” and “Best Things to Do in Sicily” did an amazing job.

    We had a wonderful time and can not thank them enough. Not only did we see and experience beautiful Sicily, but we connected with family and our Sicilian heritage.

    We can not wait to visit again!

    William Favara – Atlanta, GA, USA

    5/5

    Working with Best Things to Do in Sicily was a pleasure and frankly their input and service made our experience in Sicily extraordinary.

    They provide custom bespoke touring services for Sicily (which if you have not yet seen Sicily you have not seen Italy). Giancarmine (Gianca) was just fantastic. It is rare in life whether in business or pleasure to meet someone of his caliber.

    He was very responsive and detailed to the multitude of email questions prior to our trip.

    He listens intently and the result was an unforgettable highly personal experience. We were a large group and he assisted us with two weeks of planning activities both in the western part of Sicily and the eastern part.

    He completely exceeded expectations with finding family of mine in Sicily that I did not know allowing me to connect with relatives and meet with them.

    He ran with this by so much as a casual passing comment I made in communication to him.

    This is something that is priceless and I will never forget. To this day I am in contact with my Sicilian cousins whom he introduced me to and consequently I now have a priceless piece to family history and stories previously unknown.

    He also provided assistance with getting me to a pharmacy for an unexpected minor medical problem during our tour. I have traveled elsewhere in Europe working with the big name tour companies (most of which have been great) but working with Best Things to Do in Sicily, well they are in a whole another league.

    In summary if you are going to Sicily look no further than Best Things to Do in Sicily.

    They can clearly handle both personal vacations and corporate retreats to this wonderful part of Italy. Thank you Gianca !!

    Rosella and Gianca provided us a first class tour of Sicily that we will never forget. They, personally, were with us every step of the way. They are the most hospitable and caring hosts ever. You will not be disappointed!

    This was such a special moment in my life. I met my cousins for the very first time. Thank you Rosella and Gianca for finding my cousins and for arranging this meeting.

    It was a dream come true! I am forever grateful to you! I love you both and miss you.
