AMAZING COOKING CLASS WITH THE DUCHESS
The cooking class starts at 8:30 am and is held in a fabulous 18th century Palazzo by the sea.
You will head to the colourful Capo market to buy the freshest seasonal ingredients needed for the menu – fruit, fish or meat, vegetables, and the famous Sicilian bread. After the visit to the market, you’ll return home, stopping first at the terrace garden to select fresh herbs and citrus that you will use to prepare your dishes. Upstairs in the kitchen of the palazzo, after a quick but restorative coffee break you will start the cooking class.
The class is hands-on and no particular culinary skill level is required.
Then in the grand dining room, you will enjoy the meal you have prepared together, accompanied by Sicilian wines. The class ends at around 3:00/3:30 pm with a tour of the Palazzo after lunch.
you will learn how to cook a Sicilian menu, from appetizers, often examples of Sicilian street food, to the first dish – pasta with one of the many delicious pestos and sauces Sicilian cuisine is rich in. The second dish is usually fish according to the catch of the day, with the exception of Mondays when no fish is sold at the markets. It is accompanied by a vegetable side plate, seasonal and truly Sicilian, of course. The dessert is fruity and fresh, again according to the season – from citrus jelly to almond milk or watermelon pudding, always decorated with fruits and flowers from the terrace garden.
