A week in Sicily with Chef Stefano Manfredi

Acclaimed chef Stefano Manfredi will host a week long culinary experience at luxury Sicilian villa Rocca Delle Tre Contrade.

Australian-Italian chef Stefano Manfredi, often referred to as the ‘godfather’ of modern Italian cuisine, has partnered with luxury Sicilian villa Rocca delle Tre Contrade to offer a week-long culinary experience for home chefs and Italian food lovers.

Sitting on the fertile slopes of Mount Etna and surrounded by the fish-rich waters of the Ionian Sea, Rocca delle Tre Contrade provides a beautiful backdrop for a culinary exploration of Sicily. Over the course of the week, days will be spent visiting local fresh food markets, taking guided tours of the nearby baroque cities and learning and practicing culinary techniques under the expert guidance of Chef Manfredi.

In between meals guests can take a stroll through the villa’s lemon groves and vegetable gardens, play a game of tennis or cool off in the pool. In the evenings, a gourmet dinner will be prepared by the villa’s in-house cooks and accompanied by local wines. After a long day of culinary immersion, guests will retire to their deluxe rooms complete with private en-suite bathroom.

The culinary week will run from 14th-21st October 2017. Prices for the seven-day experience start from €4, 600 (about A$6,923) per person, twin share. For those whose partners prefer relaxation to degustation, the villa also offers reduced rates for accompanying partners sharing the room and not participating in the culinary experience.

Weather to go

For a relatively small country, the weather differs significantly between northern and southern Italy. The north of Italy is flanked by the Alps and the Apennines, generating a harsh climate with brutally cold winters and hot, humid, summers.  The middle part of the country has a mild climate with little change seen between winters and summers, while the south of Italy and the islands winters are hardly noticeable.  Due to these differences the best time to visit depends on what region you are visiting, but the high seasons are May through early July and September & October.
