What to expect
I came as a stranger and left as a friend. Even though I was the only one and no other people booked for that day, Fulvio was very talkative and kind enough to ask me to join him and his friends afterwards:) I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel Sicily and eat homemade yet very well put together.
Being a solo traveler in Palermo, and looking for a true local experience -- I couldn't have asked for anything more with Fulvio! He made me feel like a friend and a local...besides the fact that I got to eat a ton of delicious food! I highly recommend Fulvio, and all of his tours/experiences. He really made my trip to Palermo amazing!
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience this was. Fulvio was excellent with communication and an excellent host. The meal was truly amazing. I consider myself a fairly good cook and well traveled. But this was our first time in Sicily. I learned to make dishes that I have never experienced, but we’re so wonderful they will definitely be part of my normal cooking. In addition, his musical knowledge is quite extensive. We wanted to learn more Italian music and he was happy to oblige being a musician himself. I would absolutely recommend this experience. We have spent the last 2 months touring Europe and this was by far one of our favorite things we have done. Mille grazie Funvio! We did the cooking class.
It was a great walk through the city. We walked not only to food stands but Fulvio also showed us some important places of the center, which I enjoyed a lot. At the end I had a food coma, but it was worth it.
