Every summer we like to throw a pasta party for our guests – teach them the art of preparing a simple but tasty pasta dish and then enjoy their hard work on the terrace with views overlooking the sea and Mt Etna in the near distance.
Come and join us this summer and enjoy a fantastic (FREE!) meal on us!
Just a few days ago we had a cooking class and pasta party.
We all helped to cook and had a great time doing things together.
We ate together, socialized, got to know each other better and later went for a great gelato near Gianni House.
If you would like to be part of an Italian cooking class experience, if you want to learn Italian dishes or the Italian language please let us know and come and join us here.
The weather is fantastic this time of the year and prices are lower than during the summer months. We love to socialize and speak Italian with you.
Olive oil is a fat obtained from the olive fruit Olea europaea, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. In Sicily, oil is still traditionally produced by grinding whole olives and extracting the oil by mechanical means. As you know, it is commonly used in cooking, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and soaps and as a fuel for lamps.
There are quite a few Sicilian specialties; but one of my favorites is anything flavored with Pistachio!
Pistachios can be traced back to Sicily in the 9th century when Arab conquerors ruled the island and brought the trees from the Middle East.
If you’ll be in Sicily for Easter this weekend, read our recent Easter article first. It may give you a whole new perspective on how to enjoy this fantastic holiday in Sicily. (Shown here is a paschal lamb made of marzipan – a typical Sicilian pastry sold around this time of year.)Posted byVincenzo Salernoat9:23 AM
