The Cultural Anthropology of Sicily through Food
Duration: 7 days
Location: Case Vecchie
Student Discount Price: 2000 € per person
The Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School in the heart of Sicily boasts a permaculture garden, stunning setting, and hands-on cooking lessons from Chef Fabrizia Lanza who will expose you not only to the vibrant culinary traditions of this fascinating island, but the mosaics, salt pans, and ancient Greek archaeological sites that pepper the voluptuous landscape. A bike ride around the family estate, a visit to a local cheesemaker, and the stories of Sicilian food historian Mary Taylor-Simeti, all await you.
In the course of your seven–day stay in Sicily, students will be exposed to a unique and remote slice of Sicilian life (in addition to two days in vibrant and colorful Palermo, the touristic and economic capital of Sicily.) Located just outside the village of Vallelunga, the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School is just 90 minutes southeast of Palermo. This amazing place has much to offer for any visitor, but as students you will be exposed, in depth, to a crossroad of culture that will illuminate the basic human practices of storytelling, nourishment, and nature.
