  • Private experience
  • From 8 hours
  • Dec 1' - Mar 31'

Description

Lentil pasta is one of the traditional dishes mostly eaten in the past by humble people. But how most of the time happens, the poorest food always becomes the most delicious and this is what you will experience with this lentil pasta cooking class.

Surrounded by the quietness of Sicilian cultivation of citrus trees, we will prepare with the heat of the wood a typical dish with the legumes of “Terre di Santo Stefano” farm that we will slowly boil in a traditional terracotta pan called “pignata”.

Pending the cooking, we will discover together with the local farmer Nino, the highlights of the small village of Santo Stefano di Briga to then end the walking tour for lunchtime where we will taste the pulses with the pasta, fresh citrus and a good glass of wine.
