Food Travel by Chef Ric Orlando

First Stop. Taormina!
We will be staying at the Hotel Villa Schuler as our home base for the first 4 days. On our last trip the family run hotel overlooking the bay of Naxos was simply perfect; great views, cozy rooms and amazing hospitality. 6 PM: Meet and Greet at Hotel Villa Schuler overlooking the sea and Mount Etna 8 PM: Group Welcome dinner at a local restaurant (TBD)
Day 2, Sunday, May 3rd: Taormina
Breakfast at Hotel Schuler. Walking tour of Taormina, including the Greek Amphitheater. Enjoy the rest of the day in Taormina at your leisure. Explore the shops, gondola to the sea, hike the hills or just relax and sip some local wine in the wonderful hotel courtyard.
Day 3, Monday, May 4th: Catania Market and Cooking Class
My chef friend Loradana who will give us a tour of the Cantania Market, one of the best and craziest daily markets in Sicily. We will gather ingredients for the cooking class Loradana will offer us. We will learn to make fresh cavatelli and many other local dishes, all based on what is in the market. The dishes we create will be our most amazing lunch!
