“The BEST cooking class!!”
Review of Modicarte

Modicarte
Reviewed 8 July 2017

I booked a cooking class for my husband, best friend, and I on our trip to Sicily and couldn't have imagined what a great choice I made. Maurizio and his mother met us early in the morning and immediately we began cooking. We made bread, pasta, salad, a meat course and dessert and every single thing was delicious. I've taken cooking classes before and had a good time but this was another level - so intimate and fun. All fresh ingredients, simple enough to make at home with lots of flavor and dimension. The space overlooks all of Modica and Maurizio walked us through his garden to see tomatoes, peppers, olive trees, and more. Afterwards we ate (and ATE!) on the terrace with a bottle of local wine and a treat of homemade limoncello.

Come hungry and ready to learn! Maurizio is the best kind of teacher - one who makes everything so fun and engaging. Thank you Maurizio for a wonderful class!

My husband and I came to Sicily for our honeymoon. We figured we would begin our trip with a cooking class so we could cook better for the rest of the vacation. Mauritzio very easily came up with a set of dishes we could easily prepare as vegan. It was very easy to set up a date/time via email. He and his mother, Maria, were very friendly and made us feel at home. We learned some delicious ways to prepare the freshest ingredients. I highly recommend taking a cooking class here. The location was so beautiful that if we didn't already have a place to stay in Ragusa Ibla we'd stay there too.

What a wonderful experience. We love to cook and appreciate good quality, fresh food. Mauritzio and his mother specially prepared a class for us as we are vegetarians that do not eat eggs. Using seasonal produce we prepared fresh pasta, focaccia (tommasini), cassatine and other traditional Sicilian dishes.

Mauritzio speaks very good English and makes it very easy for you to learn the cooking techniques that he employs. The class differs from the standard cooking classes that are usually on offer where you simply follow the instructor and recipes - in this class you actually learn to prepare an entire meal.

The only downside was we were unable to eat everything we cooked because of the lack of room in our stomachs - so make sure you go with an empty stomach!

Grazie Maurizio, bellissimo!

A group of nine ladies and we all adored the evening cookery class. Mauritzio and Mama Maria guided us through the preparation of a traditional meal. We were delighted to sample the home grown olives, herbs and bergamot liqueur. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. The food delicious and the views stunning.
