Adventures in Sicily 2021

Join Divina Cucina’s Judy Witts Francini and Seasons of my Heart’s Susana Trilling, two American chefs and cooking teachers –living parallel lives abroad in Italy and Mexico, both members of the IACP, friends for almost 25 years!

The island of Sicily is made up of many diverse cultures and people. It was one of the main ports where ships arrived with all the new ingredients from the New World. Starting in Palermo, we travel around the island, taking cooking classes, visiting salt flats, making chocolate in a stoneground molino, shaping marzipan and visiting local markets, where Judy has her friends to welcome us. We will meet local Slow Food producers, fishermen and chefs to get a stimulating view of what Sicily has to offer. Judy has been guiding people to Sicily for over 10 years and will be sharing her expertise and insight with us!

Come join us in this long awaited collaboration between Judy and Susana!

We start our Tour in Palermo, having Catania as our last stop.
