This is your chance to learn how to make regional dishes that reflect the diverse landscape of Sicily and then sit down to savour your work paired with a selection of Sicilian grape varieties from Gibson Wines in the Barossa.
On arrival you’ll enjoy a glass of vermentino with antipasti of pork and fennel arancini, grilled zucchini with lemon caper ricotta and sardine toast.
The hands-on fun kicks off as you learn how to prepare a seasonal seafood salad with braised potato, orange, pine nuts and mint, served with a traditional Sicilian prawn cous cous, paired with riesling and fiano.
You’ll stuff eggplant rolls with pecorino, ricotta, currents, pine nuts and top them with an elegant fresh tomato sauce, to enjoy matched with a glass of nero d’Avola.
Next comes a rich slow-braised beef ragù with casarecce pasta – the perfect partner to a bold Barossa shiraz – and a side of kale dressed with lemon. To round out the feast, one of Sicily’s gifts to the world: traditional cannoli, enjoyed with a surprise dessert wine.
You’ll take home recipes and wine notes so you can take the experience with you and recreate this memorable Sicilian feast at home.
