Guests can look forward to mouth-watering food and learning tricks of the trade, not to mention luxurious accommodation. The company soloSicily provide high quality villas to customers with locations to suit all tastes.

This particular holiday experience is ideal for younger members of the family to get involved and also for adults who wish to learn new skills. Guests will find out how to prepare a typical pasta dish, such as cavatelli pasta with traditional fresh tomato sauce, or with Trapanese pesto (tomato, garlic and almonds). The best part of course will be partaking in the finished dish!

One of soloSicily's chefs is Stefania Petrotta, a talented local chef with a passion for organic, local ingredients and the history of traditional Sicilian dishes. The lessons take 3 to 4 hours, including a pasta lunch accompanied by Sicilian wine at a cost of £53 per person. soloSicily offers pasta-making lessons at more than 20 of its villas and below highlights just one of the properties:
