Book a Cook
Indulging in the local food and wine is a highlight of any holiday in Sicily and
staying in a villa presents the perfect opportunity for some leisurely browsing
amongst market stalls, experimenting with local ingredients and ‘al fresco’ poolside
meals. Relaxed, informal barbecues are a great finale to a summer’s day on the beach
but if you want to experience some of the superstars of Sicilian cuisine, such as
fresh swordfish, flavourful caponata and ricotta-filled cannoli, in the comfort
of your own villa, we can make all the arrangements for you. We have two Book a
Cook options: the Gourmet Chef Service is ideal for those looking
for a special occasion meal, prepared by a professional chef; while the more informal
Home-style Cook Service is provided by your villa owner.

Gourmet Chef Service
Whether you are on your honeymoon and looking for an intimate dinner à deux or sharing
one of our larger villas and planning a celebratory dinner with friends and family,
getting someone to shop, cook, serve and clear up for you is the ultimate treat.
You will be able to discuss any dietary preferences with a professional chef but
can then relax while they recommend a suitable menu and accompanying wines. After
that, all you need to do is sit back and sip your aperitivo while the action gets
going in the kitchen!

Home-Style Cook Service
For those looking for a more informal option, we have an arrangement with many of
our villa owners and their staff to provide traditional, home-style cooking, for
either lunch or dinner, either as a one-off, or several times during your stay.
This works really well for families or for large groups who want to sample the best
of Sicilian gastronomy with minimum effort!
Showcasing the freshest of seasonal ingredients, the menus feature a wide range
of simple but delicious dishes including local specialities such as Sicilian panelle,
homemade busiati pasta and traditional Sicilian cassata.
