About
We will begin our experience early in the morning by meeting at "Porta Carini" entrance door to one of the most famous markets in the city, the Cape. We will enter the market alleys, full of merchandise, and here we will buy everything needed to make the menu you choose together. Among the stalls full of goods, between colors and voices you will have the impression of being in one of the souks of any Muslim city. Visiting a market in Palermo is a multicultural experience, they fully express the multifaceted and cosmopolitan culture of the Palermo area. After our purchases, we will head towards my house, which is just a few minutes from Piazza Politeama. Here our experience will continue with the preparation of the dishes. Under my supervision, my kitchen will become the setting for your culinary creations.

We had a great time with Marco. He is passionate about food and a skilled chef. It was amazing to shop with him and watch him prepare, and then have him teach us now to make pasta, sauce and vegetables from scratch, , and then eat it! And, we learned some techniques about chopping, sautéing, and preparing pasta that we will use in the future.

This was the highlight of our trip in Palermo! Marco did an amazing job. The tour started in Capo Market, where we learned some history about the three markets in Palermo and picked out our fresh ingredients for lunch. Our 5 year old participated in learning how to cook lunch, while our 3 year old mostly watched. Marco was phenomenal with both kids and even made a separate pasta dish for them! That lunch was our best meal in Palermo! Marco also have recommendations for places to eat and visit around Palermo and was available to help with any questions you had, whether it was about the food, city, or his background in learning to cook in Rome.

Our cooking class was such an amazing experience! Marco made us feel welcomed, he treated us like family. He took his time to explain and showed us lots of cooking tricks. His flat is beautiful, well presented and full of history. The class itself was incredible, great food!! lots of funny moments together. Marco as a teacher is generous, captivating, passionate and extremely kind. He gave us a truly amazing Sicilian experience! I highly recommend Casa Di Cilla ❤️!

Marco does cooking classes with four 'students'. Attended with friend. The other two were a friendly couple.

Our experience with Marco was fantastic! Very authentic, welcoming, and memorable. We cannot recommend his class enough!

Marco is awesome and we loved the cooking class. We had a lot of fun shopping and cooking with Marco, learning about the local cuisine and improving our cooking skills at the same time. Marco’s home was a great location for the class, and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Palermo!

Marco is a very welcoming person and skilled chef. We went to the market together and we could decide between many of Markos suggestions. Marco explained very well to us how classic Sicilian food is prepared. It was lots of fun and a great experience.

A perfect day activity with a excellent atmosphere and a great host! The market was amazing, but the food we cooked together with Marco was even better. We had a fun time cooking together and we'd definitely do it again. :)

Marco is a vibrant man, who lets you feel at ease really soon. You visit the market and choose a menu together with him. At his house he shows that he is a good chef and a good teacher. You will know some tips and tricks of the Italian cuisine afterwards. Side note, the wine flows generously!
We had a great time!
