You will take part in a traditional Sicilian cooking class in Palermo. In its extended version, the class will take 6h: participants will first go shopping for fruits and vegetables together with the Chef in one of Palermo’s historical markets: Ballarò, Il Capo or the Vuccirìa. Once you will have procured all the fresh products you need, a welcome snack, personally prepared by the Chefs, will be offered before the hard cooking work begins. The class will finish once you will have cooked and then savored every last bite of the traditional dishes prepared together. Here a few examples of the meals you may prepare: - Panelle and Crocchè or “Cazzilli”: one of the most popular Sicilian snacks, they are thin sheets of chickpea flour fried in a deep oil bath. They are normally served together with “Crocchè”, (also known as “Cazzilli”, which in Italian makes reference to their vague phallic shape) which are made from boiled potatoes. - Sicilian Caponata is central to the Sicilian gastronomical tradition. Although today it is normally a vegetable-based recipe, it seems that the basic ingredient of the original version of the dish was actually a fish known as “Capone”, from which “Caponata” took its name. - Sarde Allinguate: many traditional Sicilian dishes reflect the heritage of the many different people that ruled over the island throughout its history. The “Sarda” fish (pilchard) is cut open and boned in such a way as to resemble a flatfish. Since the latter was referred to as “lenguado” by Spanish aristocrats, Sarda fishes prepared by this technique became known as “sarde allinguate”.
