Sicilian Feast, Authentic Italian Food

Sicilian Feast, Authentic Italian Food

Duration: 1 Day

Although the food of Sicily is undoubtedly Italian based, its famous cuisine is greatly influenced by other cultures that have invaded and settled on the island over the centuries. As a consequence Sicilian dishes have Arab, Spanish and Greek influences making them exotic and unique to this region of Italy.  

Join Ursula for an inspired day in the kitchen and learn to create her favourite Sicilian dishes and the Sicilian joy of living! 

  • Caponata
  • Arancini di Risu e Ricotta
  • Basic Egg Pasta
  • Pasta con le Sarde
  • Pesto alla Trapanese 
  • Sfincione
  • Cassateddi
 The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park.  

The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.
