The activity will start in the afternoon, we will go around Menfi to buy all the ingredients from local farmer and producers, in very typical Sicilian places. Then we will go to the countryside to pick up the vegetables produced by ourselves (less than 0 km!!) There, after a quick break with a glass of local wine, we will start the cooking class! I will teach you how to manipulate the ingredients and obtain the best flavor out of them. You will learn some secrets of cooking and you will be able to replicate my plates once you're back in your hometown! Finally we will all have dinner with my family and maybe some friends, all together in a big table, eating the delicious food that you cooked with me.
The food will change acoording to the seasonality of products
You will be able to use all the tools in my professional kitchen
I have been cooking since when I was very young learning the secrets of Sicilian kitchen from my grandmother, growing up I decided to make a job out of my passion. After many years working in several restaurants and making cooking class I decided to retire and keep cooking just for my family, friends and guests.
We will spend the first part of the afternoon around farmers and markets to find the ingredients, you will learn how to choose the good one and discard the bad one. The main location in the second part of the experience is my family home in the countryside, there you will harvest fruits and vegetables, follow the cooking class, relax in pool and have dinner with my family.
