“Cooking recipes are an extremely democratic universal good, a treasure that belongs to everyone and that as the seven notes can be combined in thousands and thousands of ways and become personal, sometimes unique”
A journey, a worthy experience goes by this: something unique that will not forget and teach you the secrets of how to prepare the real Sicilian dishes for your family and friends when you come home.
Our Sicilian cooking lessons are held at our host and besides the receipes we will also have moments of sharing, passion for our special and unique culture that goes far from the table of all the Sicilians.
Sicily is famous for a long list of delicious foods such as eggplant “parmigiana”, Caponata, Pasta with Sardines, Arancini (special rice balls fried with meat sauce, peas, cheese), Swordfish rolls, cous-cous … the list here is so long … and I’m starting to get hungry 🙂
The lessons can vary according to the fresh seasonal products available and include home made pasta, various pasta sauces, fish and meat dishes, vegetarian dishes and desserts; Ricotta cheese Cannoli, Cassata Siciliana (Sicilian fancy cake), Almond paste, Chilled Lemon pudding, Granita (it’s like a special sorbet)
The lessons take place every day and offer an authentic cooking experience of about 3 hours, you start with tour at the marketplace where you will choose fresh and local products, immersed in Sicilian extraordinary daily like and prepared meals will then be consumed for lunch.
A meal without wine is like a day without sun.
Wine is for sure one of the typical products of excellence in Sicily, in recent years the quality has grown considerably and has allowed Sicilian wine to be affirmed all over the world.
Sicily is identified with a variety of wines and vineyards: the most famous is Nero d’Avola but a lot of other variety are not to be understimate such as Syrah, Nerello Mascalese, Cerasuolo di Vittorio, Moscato etc…
Of corse wine tastings are offered by many wine shops, but being able to go directly from those who produce allows us to discover the territory and it is certainly an exceptional experience (unless you are non-alcoholic drinker) and doing it without the worries of having to drive afterwards.
This type of tour can be custom made for small groups or individuals, for half or full excursion and possibility combining them with other tour. So Contact us if you would like to receive additional information.
