Italian and Sicilian cookery courses

 

What we propose to you is not just to taste but also to learn to prepare yourselves the best Italian specialities especially from the Sicilian tradition!

 

Upon request, we organise Italian and Sicilian cooking classes with professional chefs. In each cookery class you will participate in the preparation of a full dinner, from antipasti (starters) to dolci (desserts), with a detailed explanation of every recipe. Each cooking lesson takes a whole afternoon and it ends with a full dinner (wine-tasting included) that participants will share around the table with the chef.

 

Here are a few Italian and Sicilian recipes, very simple and tasty: to begin with, a sweet-and-sour caponata salad with aubergines and olives; then, pasta with pesto sauce, either the classic Genoa pesto or the stronger Trapani pesto;  followed by Palermo style herrings rolled with pine nuts, raisins and bay leaves; and finally a juicy and refreshing lemon or almond granita.

Buon appetito !

 

At the beginning of each session we will inform you about eligible dates for cookery lessons and conditions for registration.  For price information please visit our page about Dates & Prices.
