Courgette/Zuccini recipe excellent. Pasta tutorial good. Nice location Friendly. A very pleasant way to spend a rainy and windy October day. Good tips on sauce making. Sadly we can't get the ripe tomatoes so easily further north !

Wonderful cooking experience with Antonio. We made delicious food from fantastic ingredients. Ate so much! Antonio was a great teacher and great fun. Would highly recommend a visit to Villa Palamara for this thoroughly enjoyable cooking experience. Easy cab ride from Cefalù.
