We prepare as a group the complete meal which consists of steaming couscous the correct way, making a vegetable stew, lamb tagine, b’stilla from chicken and preserved lemons, several appetizers and some little phyllo pies with homemade harissa. Most of the recipes are from my childhood days and based on what I was able to learn from my Moroccan mother.

The cuisine of Sicily takes its flavors from the sea, land and mountains. Its unique mixture of tastes is also the product of an overlapping of the different cultures that, over thousands of years, have made Sicily a crossroads between the culinary traditions of the Western and Arab worlds. And behind it all is local produce of exceptional quality – foods that give life to a cuisine that can be simple or complex, rustic or refined. This course will take a close look at the main ingredients used in the Sicilian kitchen while preparing, as a group, some classic dishes based on seasonal products such as: Arancini, Panelle, Caponata, Parmigiana di melanzane, Couscous alla trapanese, Pasta alla Norma, Ricotta e miele di timo, Granita and more… We will also include within this feast some wonderful samplings of fine Sicilian wines!
