Best part of our Sicilian vacation! Thank you Chef Mimmo for making our experience outstanding!
We met at the arch if you are concerned about finding the location Google map Don Diego gelato it’s right next to the arch.
Chef met my husband and I and took us to the market to buy the freshest of ingredients. The market is through an alley way most people would miss but it was a treat, we felt like locals and learned about the produce specific to Sicily in November.
Then a Mercedes van picked us up and whisked us to Chefs gorgeous restaurant on the water. There we met one other couple and began out cooking experience. Everything was super clean and the staff washed and placed items in dishes so we could prepare everything.
We made pesto pasta with tomatoes and almonds and pasta Norma. Both dishes are specific to Sicily and both were phenomenal. We actually made the pasta from scratch kneading dough while enjoying an amazing seaside view, it was like being in a movie! We learned how to create 7 types of pasta, one was easier than the next and Chef showed us the items needed to prepare this pasta are available on Amazon!
Next, we made swordfish stuffed and rolled on a bed of the freshest tomatoes and a veggie to complement the fish that included tomato sauce, veggies, eggplant raisins and capers. Both were delish!
While waiting for the sauce to cook chef prepared an outstanding charcuterie tray for us with yummy bread and yes lots of white wine! We got to enjoy the other two participants and the amazing seaside view!
