Offers details

The characteristic fish market of Catania, "la Pescheria", will be the starting point of a tour dedicated entirely to the culinary traditions of Catania. Following a local guide you will take a stroll through the folkloric and colourful stalls, loaded with super-fresh local ingredients. You will be swept away by the throng of activity of la Pescheria!
After purchasing some key ingredients for the cooking class at the market, you will head to the restaurant where the cooking class will be held.
You will prepare a full Catanese menu which will include (depending on the season and the availability of fresh produce): pasta alla norma or pasta with squid ink and ricotta, Catanese caponata, meatballs wrapped in lemon leaves, arancini rice balls, fish and meat roulades, horse-meat meatballs, sweet and sour zucchini, and naturally a dessert, such as the "minnuzze di Sant'Agata" (cassatella made with ricotta), cannoli or panzerotti.
After the cooking class comes the joyous moment to enjoy the well-deserved lunch, during which you will taste all the dishes you have prepared. The lunch will be accompanied by fine wines of Etna and a storytelling session about the myths and legends of Catania, its sea, its mountains, its food..

This is a private tour, for which we require a minimum of 10 participants.
