Sickles' Gourmet Tour to Sicily
“To really understand Italy you need to immerse yourself … to stop for a while in one place, to take the time to meet people, taste the food and understand the culture. Being in Italy is about slowing down and appreciating where you are” Bob Sickles.

Bob Sickles is passionate about bringing good food to Sickles Market and goes wherever the search for the good stuff takes him. Whether in New York, New Jersey or across the ocean, Bob supports local businesses dedicated to fine food. As a result, Sickles Market now carries artisanal foods Bob hand selected in Sicily, foods that you won’t find anywhere else.

This October, Bob is going back to visit his favorite food artisans in Sicily and invites you to join him. Travel with Bob, Sicilian Chef Gioacchino Passalacqua and a small group of food lovers on an insider’s journey to the culinary heart of Italy. Shop on cobbled streets and at local markets; cook a Sicilian meal, visit the local food producers and take part in tastings of the finest cheeses, wines, chocolates and olive oils.

Experience with us a Sicily that is so wonderfully diverse and eclectic and have time to relax and explore on your own. 

“If like me, you love Italian food, have travelled before to Italy and are looking for a different, more intimate insider’s travel experience, this trip is perfect for you”—Bob Sickles
