Cooking with a Unicredit Bank Team

Lots of fun last Monday with a team of Ragusani from Unicredit Bank in the kitchen. It was no team-building exercise as this was already a well-jelled team, a group of people who work so well together to win a prize as Sicily's best Unicredit team. The prize? A a plaque, of course, and a cooking lesson with loveSicily ;)!
So besides the managers coming from Milan and Genoa, we were a loud bunch of Sicilians in the kitchen. It was real fun!

We started with a "Festa Siciliana": calacausi (peanuts), calia (roasted chickpeas), simenta (pumpkin seeds), etc served with red wine, chinotto and spuma. This kind of nibbles are typical of Sicilian festas, with people sitting at the corner of the street selling all these in paper cones. You usually by a mixture of what you prefer and start eating it as you stroll along the main "corso".
Then we moved in the kitchen to prepare a Modica's chocolate based menu served with a Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG.
