Fun Evening Making Aranchini
A very enjoyable evening, myself & 2 grown up daughters spent an evening with Giovanni learning how to make Aranchini. We were given coffee, hors devours & wine. It was fun & of course we got to eat what we made. Also took home the rest of the Aranchini balls.

Arancino cooking class
We had a wonderful time learning to make the Sicilian classic street food. The ingredients were fantastic and the chef was informative and fun. Definitely go to this two hour event and eat your creations. We are bringing these techniques back to our friends in California.

Thank you for the wonderful experience of preparing the best Arancine of the world. We will bring it home to family and friends. As for the experience itself: the guide (kitchen chef) was super friendly and passionate. Even cooking beginners can make very nice Arancine. Also the other staff made us feel at home. Would recommend this tour and would book here again, A+

Arancino Class - learning the secrets of a Sicilian Classic
An excellent way to spend a few hours learning how to make a Sicilian staple, after having devoured them throughout our trip.

In friendly and easy surroundings, Giovanni guided us through each step in a truly hands on experience. His infectious passion meant that we weren't just making food but getting a full on lesson in Italian cooking, and life, along the way.

As the restaurant is centrally located in Taormina it makes it a perfect ending to a day spent walking through the town. And as you'll end up with enough arancino to feed a Roman Army you won't have to worry about dinner later on, or for the next few days :)

We had such an enjoyable evening learning how to cook arancini with Giovanni! Both he and his team were very welcoming and fun to work with.
A wonderful experience where we not only learnt how to make and cook arancini, but also about the history.
We left very full and happy after a wonderful evening! We would definitely recommend this course to any lover of Italian food and hospitality! :)

I had the best time making Arancino with Giovanni. I enjoyed learning all the tricks from him. He is a first class teacher with a great sense of humour.
I can't wait to go to his Cannoli class, when I am next in Taormina.

Arancino masterclass
Lovely couple of hours with Giovanni learning how to cook Arancino. Everything was explained very well and the class was very enjoyable. Giovanni is a very gentle, likeable man. Everyone was given the opportunity to join in and we ate the Arancino at the end with plenty of wine.

Fabulous time with Giovanni. He was very helpful and we had so much fun making way too many arancini for the two of us. We had dinner at Porta Messina again the next day and it was wonderful. Dont miss this opportunity to discover the real Italian way. Thank you Giovanni.
