Cotumè provides fine and engaging food&wine cultural experiences in Sicily: hands-on cooking classes, cooking show and food tours. The activities take place in some exclusive venues selected because of their particular “value” for food and wine: Unesco heritage sites, awarded wineries on Mount Etna, house-museums, noble palaces, country villas; also including the most authentic and popular expressions of the Island, as the historical food markets.

We had such a wonderful experience with our “in villa” cooking class, including a full dinner, hands on preparations and then eating all the amazing food for all 9 of us including some very picky teenagers who loved everything. Thank you so much for this!
