This experience was booked for us as part of our Sicilian experience. It may be rather far from any city but the trip out to the villa is worth the drive. This beautiful location in an old farmhouse is wonderfully typical of all we saw....More
We arranged to do the half day cooking class with arrival the evening before the class starts. We were already very impressed when we arrived at Case Vecchie. It is located in between vineyards and complete nature. They have an amazing pool where we relaxed...More

Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved having you at Case Vecchie and hope you will be back soon!
I came up here to have a look to bring a group of tourists for next year. This is a truly amazing place to visit and experience, totally stands on its own, has its own sense of character and quite welcoming. The staff are welcoming...More

Our group of about 50 enjoyed a half day at the cooking school. Our organizer requested the visit, and I didn't get the feeling that it was at all typical to have groups of that size, but they handled it well. The staff was very...More
We recently spent 5 days at the cooking school and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It far exceeded all of our expectations. We cooked with Fabrizia and Mario and produced some really wonderful meals. They are both very "hands on" instructors who are equally...More
my wife and I spent 2 wonderful days at the cooking school with Fabrizia, her assistant Mario and the rest of the staff. Our time included a fascinating visit to a sheep farm to watch the making of fresh ricotta and the best winery tour...More
Towards the end of our week-long Sicilian culinary tour, we spent our final three nights at Casa Vecchie, run by Anna's daughter Fabrizia and a handful of international interns...where traditions of a culinary icon continue. Throughout our stay, we feasted on fine Sicilian cooking; even...More
We spent 3 nights at the Anna Tasca Cooking School at Case Vecchie about 100kms from Palermo in a beautiful part of the Sicilian countryside. The fabulous Fabrizia continues and extends the traditions of her famous mother Anna. We had a wonderful, enchanting time with...More
The cooking school and dinner at the winery was the highlight of our trip to Sicily! Costanza, Fabrizia's niece, and her staff couldn't have been more welcoming! I learned a lot & thoroughly enjoyed the class. The food & wine was amazing and the setting...More
