Market Tour & Handmade Pasta Class

Join our Sicilian pasta class and discover what makes handmade, Sicilian pasta different. We do not use eggs!

You will learn how to make 2 types of handmade, Sicilian pasta: Cavatelli and Busiate, along with 2 different sauces.

Here is how your day will unfold.

We will meet you in the morning and take you on a shopping tour of the vibrant and colorful Capo Market. Take in all the sights, sounds and amazing smells of the market while being introduced to many foods you have never seen before. You will be helped to select the fresh seasonal ingredients in anticipation of creating an amazing meal.

After our shopping trip we go to our cooking studio which is housed inside a very historic Palazzo Asmundo dating back to the 18th century. You are welcomed to the kitchen with a refreshing glass of Sicilian wine while you unpack your market purchases and discuss the delicious menu that lay ahead of you.

A typical lunch menu will be prepared in a truly authentic Sicilian style consisting of:

  • Two primo (pasta’s)
  • A secondo (fish or meat)
  • A side dish such as ‘’eggplant caponata’’ or other seasonal vegetables
  • Dolce (dessert)


During the preparation you will taste local wines and cheeses, olives and the extra virgin olive oil made in Nucidda, our country house in Reitano, 1 hour and 15 min. from Palermo.

At Nucidda we also provide cooking classes, wine tastings, parties and any food oriented events you can inquire about.

After about 2.5 hours of hands on cooking, we will now all sit together and enjoy the meal we have prepared together, always with a glass of homemade Limoncello at the end of our meal!

All our guests will receive a Certificate of Accomplishment signed by the Chef.

All our recipes can be found in our cookbook: ‘’Seriously Sicilian – Authentic Recipes for Hungry Families’’, available in our location or on the internet at this link: https://it.blurb.com/b/10604836-seriously-sicilian so you do not need to take notes!, Just chill out and drink Vino!
