    My wife and I just got done with the class this evening and we loved it!! Our host was so kind and invited us into her flat, led us in preparing a wonderful meal with items from the local market, and engaged us with great conversation. We learned about Sicily and cooking all at once! The only trouble we had was the address GYG has is incorrect. A last-minute email from GYG fortunately came through and we walked (only 300m) to the correct address. Thanks so much for hosting us!

    Anna was very responsive to us, conjured up a delicious dinner with us (tagliatelle with pak choi and caponata) and also gave us great tips for our stay in Catania. We learned a lot about the country and its people that evening in a very personal atmosphere. Absolutely to recommend!!!

    The meeting point is NOT where it’s supposed to be held at but it wasn’t a big issue, we had to walk another 5 minutes to find the place. The lady was super nice and hospitable, the area was very clean and she prepped prior to us getting there. We made fresh pasta, a salad and she provided bread and wine. Dinner was absolutely delicious and wonderful.
