Here is what you will live

Firriato’s Cooking Classes represent a real moment of cultural study of the Sicilian anthropological tradition, through 4 different cooking classes.

From the cùscus to the pesto alla Trapanese, included the Sicilian pastry with cassata and cannoli, the dishes are interpreted in a modern key by the skillful hands of the Chef who will reveal the origins and history of each recipe to the participants. Particular attention will be devoted to the description of the raw materials used such as ricotta, durum wheat semolina, local sh and products from the garden strictly at zero km. We will then proceed to the realization of the dish that will be tasted together with Firriato’s wines. A unique and unmissable opportunity, face to face with the history and tradition of Sicilian cuisine, to learn, from the voice of a great Chef, the distinctive elements of the cuisine of this stretch of coast. 

Discover Sicily through its couscous

From the age-old recipe, a legacy of the Arab domination, to its Sicilian reinterpretation. This cooking class covers all the secrets for making one of western Sicily’s most symbolic dishes couscous perfectly. All the steps from the rolling of the couscous to the preparation of the fish broth from the catch of the day and the cooking in the special terracotta pot are covered. The Cooking Class includes a lunch of the dish created during the lesson and lasts 3 hours (beverage not included).

His majesty, the fish

The Mediterranean is an uncontaminated location that fish and shellfish of a unique fla- vour, recognised the world over, call home from the Mazara red prawns to the Marettimo lobsters, from red tuna to the pelagic amberjack. This class celebrates the Sicilian fisher- man’s haul and the best dishes which highlight its organoleptic characteristics. The lesson lasts 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes a tasting of the dishes prepared paired with Firriato meditation wines (beverage not included).

The culinary tradition through Slow Food Ark of Taste Products

Sicily boasts forty Slow Food Ark of Taste registered products. They are rare products which have been saved from extinction by groups of farmers, breeders, and fisherman to protect the great biodiversity of the island. Some of these excellent small yield products are the raw ingredients used to make the dishes which you will sample at the end of the cooking class. The lesson lasts three hours (beverage not included)

Sicilian patisserie from tradition to innovation

The ancient Sicilian patisserie tradition as passed down through history, and the modern interpretation of the tradition’s key players: Cassata and Cannoli. The Cooking Class also includes a tasting of Firriato meditation wines. Total duration 2 hours 30 minutes (beverage not included).
