Siciliy....agrotourism vs. cooking schools?

lizneustein | May 26, 2013 01:44 PM

Hi Chowhound friends,

My boyfriend (Avidan on the forums) and I wil be spending 4 days in Sicily in 2 weeks. I have always wanted to go to Fabrizia Lanza's cooking school and thought that is where we would end up, but the more research I do, the more confused I get. We are landing in Palermo mid week and plan to rent a car. I was thinking we would head to the Ionian Coast and not really spend much time in Palermo. I hear the markets not that great there. Recently I cam across lots of agrotourism listings, such as Moncai Delle Terre Nere, Mandranova and Talia.

Would love some clarity on the best ways to sample the food, learn some new techniques and to soak in Sicily.

Thanks All
Liz
