I visited Syracuse in March of 2016. I was hoping to schedule a cooking class with Fiora because of all the wonderful reviews previously written. Three to four weeks before my trip I reached out and we communicated through email about schedules/times/what we were interested in cooking and cost. She was very prompt and informative then after several (9) email... More

What a great experience. After meeting Fiore at the markets and sourcing local, fresh ingredients we went back to her beautiful house where we were wined and dined... and there was some cooking involved. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend cooking with Fiore! It was the highlight of our trip.

We had a wonderful day with Fiora. She guided us through the markets and let us help her select our menu. Later, back at her beautiful apartment, we cooked and laughed and ate and ate. It was educational to see how she prepared different menu items. The food was delicious and abundant. We didn't need to eat dinner that night.... More

From a visit to the market (Fiora knows everyone!), to hands on cooking experience, to demos, to a vast and varied lunch, every part was perfect. This is a must if you are in Syracuse.

Meeting and Cooking with Fiora was an experience we anticipated with great enthusiasm. From the shopping trip through the Syracuse Market, where she introduced us to her favorite venders, to spending time in her kitchen and home, everything was handled with ease, professionalism and warmth. She creates a rich experience that immerses you in the world of the Sicilian slow... More

WOW! Our authentic food experience with Fiora was absolutely amazing! First, I emailed her to explore the class for our family of 5, which included our children ages, 17, 20 and 23.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality of Fiora in her home. As other reviewers have stated, we started our morning in a wonderful open market picking out fresh items for our menu. We enjoyed the hands on experience of creating a wonderful luncheon. Prosecco and wine were provided to accompany our meal. It was a very lovely... More

Today was amazing with Fiora! We started off at the market where she told us a lot about local ingredients as well as where here favorite shops were and which products were in season. It was also nice that it seemed like everyone knew her (we got special fish because of it!) Later, she invited us to her beautiful home... More
