A fabulous and fun day!
Jan 2020
We loved our day with Loredana in Catania. We started in the market with a great tour and spent time to buy all of our supplies. Loredana took our input and we added a few things to the menu that we all wanted to try, like an assortment of mixed greens and artichokes. The cooking school is a beautiful and stylish space and once we were there, it was so fun to learn the different recipes, drink delicious wine, snack on meat and cheese, and have great conversations! We all got to help out a lot and I felt really confident to make the recipes once we got home! This is a great option if you want to take a cooking class and I could not recommend Loredana more! She is very kind and was super easy to be in touch with.

Totally Amazing
Dec 2019 • Family
This cooking class was the highlight of our stay in the Catania area. Loredana was incredibly an amazing Chef and the cooking class including the market tour was wonderful. The class was hands on and included a history of the dishes. We were able to pick the dishes before we got to Italy and Loredana ensured that the the dishes were 100% nut free, as we advised of allergy. Loredana also emailed us the recipes so that we could make everything again in our own. I would definitely do it again when I return to Sicily.

Unbelievably Amazing!!
Jul 2019
While our husbands decide to golf, my friend and I signed up for cooking class with Myda Cooking School. Believe me, they were so bummed they didn't come with us! Prior to coming to Sicily, Chef Loredana sent us a list of dishes so that we could choose what we would like to learn to make. It seriously took us hours to decide - everything looked sooo good! When we met the Chef, she took us though the local markets where we bought all of our ingredients fresh from local vendors. We then walked to her cooking school which was extremely nice, clean and professional. Loredana was so friendly and a fantastic teacher. Her brother was there helping and her mom popped in too which was so nice and made the experience so personal. Not only did we just make the meal but she picked up local cheeses for us to try. This was seriously one of the best meals we had on our trip. She gave us all of the recipes and to me the true test of a good cooking school is if you can actually make the dishes again at home. I have made the tomato sauce, pesto sauce, homemade pasta and the chicken rolled with cheese and prosciutto and none were difficult and all were fantastic. My family would agree!! I am dying to go back to Sicily just to learn how to cook some more dishes! Thank you Loredana!!

Exceptional cooking lesson
Jul 2019 • Couples
My partner and I were looking for a traditional Sicilian cooking lesson in Catania. We booked a private lesson with Loredana with a focus on pasta dishes. We agreed the three dishes and booked the lesson via email, a very simple process. The school itself is well equipped, spotlessly clean and air conditioned. Refreshments and light snacks were provided. Loredana is a fantastic teacher, giving clear guidance and ensuring the lesson was hands on, maximising what we could take away from it. I felt confident afterwards, that I could tackle the pasta dishes and picked up plenty of tips that would otherwise be missed from a cookbook! Loredana was very engaging personally and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially eating the end product! I would recommend her class to anyone thinking of cooking lessons in Sicily.

Highlight of our trip!
Jul 2019 • Family
Our family of four (two adult children) spent a wonderful day with Loredana learning to cook 3 Sicilian dishes. Communication to set up the day was done by email and was very clear and easy. We were able to choose our menu from a list of options, with some help from Loredana to make sure we had a well-balanced lunch. We started our day with a tour of the market where Loredana provided us with great information about the market itself and about buying the produce and fish that we needed to make our lunch. From there it was a short walk to her beautiful cooking school. It was very much a hands on class where we participated in all aspects of preparation. Loredana provided clear instruction and background information about the various dishes. The cooking class was definitely a high point of our trip. We were a mix of experienced and non-experienced cooks and we all came away with excellent techniques that we will certainly put to good use.

So fantastic, memorable and delicious!
Jan 2019 • Couples
We ended up with so much more than we even expected. It was my idea of a perfect day. It started with a short walk to the market and some insight to some of the history of Catania, meeting vendors and learning about the foods offered, learning about local restaurants, picking up ingredients for our day cooking. Then we got to go prepare the traditional foods, and even better, eat them! We did some marvelous things on our trip, but this day is the reason I want to go back to Catania. Sadly I was ill and we had to cancel our second day, they were so understanding. I look forward to getting to return!

Excellent and real Sicilian cooking experiance
Oct 2018 • Couples
My wife and my self wanted to learn and experience the way of Sicilian traditional cooking. We are not Italian speakers so we were looking for English talking school. After talking with Chef Loredana we decide to take 4 cooking day class and also to book the room in Myda school to stay during our visit.
It was wonderful decision, from the moment that we have arrived Domenico was waiting for us and show us the school and the neighborhood, then Loredana arrived and we new from the first meeting that it is going to be amazing. The morning after we start at local coffee shop for breakfast and then we went to the market and it was fascinated and very teaching. We cooked what we buy and then day by day we learn new recipes and exposed to the traditional Sicilian leaving and cooking.
The school is amazing and above all the work with Loredana is way above every expectation, from the first day we felt like part of the family, we had our privacy in the room and in two steps we could join the student of many courses, Italian classes and international, we met many people and develop excellent connection with student, we learn and experience how to cook and eat. Many of Loredana's family members are working at school and we want to say thank to all for the wonderful time.
All we can say is WOW, amazing experience and time, highly recommended.

Exceeded Expectations
Oct 2018 • Couples
What a wonderful day. We were able to secure two slots in the Sicilian Sweets class. Loradana, the owner/chef was a perfect hostess and instructor. We were immediately comfortable. No intimidation or condescending attitude. Although not a completely hands on course we were able to get the feel of consistencies and see timing on mixing ingredients. We were there to learn the techniques, which we absolutely were able to do.

A great addition to your Catania experience if you enjoy cooking. Her equipment is up to date and the instruction area was clean, bright, and modern.

Loradana is a delight. Thank you for a great experience.

A wonderful day of learning
Sep 2018 • Couples
Loredana Crisafi produced for us a highly enjoyable day of learning the intricacies of making pasta, prepping a veal dish and a dessert. Ms Crisafi was knowledgeable and had a great way of getting across the lessons to be learned. I'd recommend this school to anyone who'd like to begin learning how to cook "Italian".
