Celebrity chef, food writer and TV presenter Dominique Rizzo has launched a new range of Pure Food and Wine Cooking Tours, touring Sicily and the Aeolian Islands.
Dominique Rizzo holds a long-standing love affair with food moulded by her Sicilian heritage from an early age and today she is a food expert driven by her passion for creating quality food experiences through her own range of cooking tours.
The Pure Food and Wine Cooking Tours are a range of bespoke culinary tours offering a real local experience deep in history and local traditions in food, art and local families.
Groups are capped at sixteen guests and are designed to give each traveller a personal and relaxing food and wine experience which showcases the best cuisine and culture of each region.
Focused on offering more than a simple food based cooking tour, the Pure Food and Wine Cooking Tours are all inclusive with accommodation, local English-speaking guided tours, cultural visits, hands on cooking classes, market tastings, gourmet traditional lunches and dinner banquets included in the price.
“It’s important that guests are aware that previous cooking and travel experience is not necessary; these tours cater for all, from novice traveller and those passionate about food and travel to those looking for an expert and intimate guide to the region,” Ms Rizzo said.
Using local guides, hotels and restaurants is also important to Ms Rizzo.
“I believe that it is the people that make the country and the experiences that make your trip soul satisfyingly unforgettable and by using local businesses at every opportunity we are ensuring that the Pure Food and Wine Cooking Tours deliver a truly authentic experience,” Ms Rizzo said.
