We did not stay at this residence. We only attended the cooking lesson and lunch experience.
I bought my foodie loving wife the cooking lesson and lunch experience at Gangivecchio as part of her birthday present while touring Sicily. She was enthralled by the experience. Our host, Giovanna Tornabene is a delightful and dignified lady who speaks English very well and certainly knows how to cook. On arrival we were taken on a tour of part of the un-renovated 14th centrury Benedictine abbey. Then to the kitchen where Giovanna showed us how to make the perfect carbonara, a baked pasta dish and a sweet chicken dish served with couscous. The meal was served with wine and all the dishes were stand-outs. My wife now wants to return when we tour Italy in the next couple of years. The cost of 50 euro each may seem like an expensive lunch but we don't regret a penny of it.
It is not easy to get to but, for us, that only added to the charm of this experience.
