Hosted in English

What you'll do

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.

Any nerves about the experience disappeared within minutes of meeting the family. We were welcomed into their world of real Sicilian food and how to cook it. We went to a Cheese factory and with our purchases headed back to their house to pick our food in the gardens and orchards. The preparation and cooking was fun combined drinking lovely wines culminating in a family gathering eating all the food we had prepared and cooked earlier in the evening. A fantastic evening, one we would both recommend.

Our family participated in the cooking class with Giusi. Her family also helped her and we felt totally integrated in their family cooking with a high level of excellent food. We prepared at least 5 different dishes. It was such a unique experience and along of creating such special memories we brought home authentic recipes which one is never going to find in a cooking book. It rounded up our trip to Sicily in a perfect way. Thank you!
