What you'll do

Before starting with the lesson, me and my partner Francesco will welcome you as we use to do here: with a good coffee and a homemade cake. After a short visit to our home, to be sure that you can feel it as yours, we will start with the class: you will learn not a simple "know how", but something deeper, a way to discover this area, its history and stories that always accompany the reason of a tradition. The typical shapes of this area are two (Sicily is big and with a long history so every territory has its specific recepies!I will show you some...) and we will prepare "maccarruna" and "tagghiarini" only with our hands from the kneading to the shape, using the traditional way. We'll can use either the garden or the kitchen, and we will have a break waiting for the lunch, with our bread and some other goodies from our kitchen. When you will be satisfied enough of your pasta, we will look for ingredients in the vegetable garden, in order to prepare the sauces. We'll cook and have our lunch all together, drinking some good local wine. We will say goodbay only after a sweet moment with a homemade sicilian dessert.

More tips

The cooking class will take place at my home "Casa del Vento" where it's also possible to spend the night (according to the availability). The home is close to the A19 highway exit (only 15 minutes!) and the road from there it's so beautufil, going across the olive's groves all around.
