Palermo Traditional Sicilian Cooking Class
Your traditional Sicilian cooking class begins with a shopping experience - under the guidance of your two sister chefs - in one of Palermo’s historical markets, such as Ballarò, Il Capo or the Vuccirìa. Once you have all the fresh ingredients, your chefs will offer you a personally prepared welcome snack before the cooking work begins. The class will begin at 12:00 noon and will finish once you have cooked and then savored every last bite of the traditional dishes prepared together - “panelle e crocchè” and “cazzilli” (fried chick pea cakes and potato fritters), “parmigiana di melanzane” or “sarde allinguate” (fried vinegar sardines) (all foods depending on season).
