My name is Gianpiero and I am 36 years old. I am the owner of two holiday homes here in Palermo. I studied to become a chef de cuisine and worked in a couple of restaurants. In one I practiced training together with a brigade specialized in typical Sicilian cuisine. In the other I managed a local kitchen, offering burgers, hamburgers and other dishes created by myself. The experience I want to propose concerns the possibility of learning to prepare something 100% Sicilian so as to bring home a precious souvenir of our land.

This was our first cooking class experience and we loved it! We requested to have a pizza class and he went out of his way with all the ingredients! We lost count of all the pizzas we made and left home with a pizza which was as delicious the next day. This is a great date idea!!Gianpiero explained the recipe well and we can’t wait to make it at home. He has a great and friendly vibe and we got to know more about Sicily through him. We are thankful for all the recommendations and especially the great pictures that he took.

We had a great experience cooking with Gianpiero. We made a traditional Sicilian fresh pasta and pesto dish and also cannoli (which was a lovely surprise!) The food was delicious and really fun to prepare. It was cool to use a pasta maker for the first time! Gianpiero was a great host, welcoming us into his home and sharing his knowledge and stories of cooking and living in Sicily. He also gave us lots of local recommendations for places to go and most importantly what to eat! I am vegetarian and Gianpiero was very accommodating to our requests. It was a unique experience and would really recommend.

Incredible experience and one we’ll never forget! Gianpiero made us feel so welcome from the second we arrived and was so knowledgeable and passionate about Sicilian cuisine. Also my girlfriend is vegetarian and Gianpiero was very accommodating in terms of the choice of food we made. A one of the kind experience that we would highly recommend to anyone and everyone.

Formidable ! Le cours de cuisine de Gianpiero s’est déroulé avec succès. Nous avons eu la chance de préparer une pizza en recevant tous les informations, et détails très personnels. Il nous a très vite mis à l’aise avec sa joie de vivre et son humour multilingue. L’hôte a été très accueillant et également très vigilant lors de la session en apportant dès l’entrée du gel pour les mains. C’était une expérience formidable et inoubliable. Nous sommes très heureux avoir avoir pu vivre ce moment. Un grand merci Gianpiero ! Nous recommandons vivement le cours de cuisine ! Grazzie
