Just a taste of our visits to Ortigia in Siracusa during the current spring-summer loveSicily cookery holidays.
Enjoy the photos:
Even this season, our cookery courses are giving us the chance to meet very interesting people. It is always a pleasure to introduce our guests to the culinary wonders of Sicily and the many other great things the island has to offer.
With many of them, we keep in touch even years after they have visited our school and this is simply fantastic. This said, this post should not come as a surprise to you.
Modica's culinary heritage has always impressed me, the city offers such a variety of products and recipes which are classic of Sicilian and South-Eastern Sicilian cuisine and special ones which belong just to Modica's food history and tradition like: cioccolato, 'mpanatigghi and liccumie. Chocolate, in particular, has contributed to making Modica famous all over the world.
Love and passion for food have always been part of my family culture and I am happy that my daughter has fully embraced this passion and discovered already the fun that food can offer.
To me, eating Nonna Elvira's food was always fun and a good lesson at the same time, but I also used to spend lots of time "playing" in the kitchen with her and my mom, and loved every minute of it.
