Dinner Tonight: Sicilian 

image.jpeg

The Dinner Tonight series is for beginning-to-intermediate level cooks who want to learn recipes that they can recreate at home. Students will prepare both simple weeknight recipes, and also dishes that can be made ahead of time for busy weeks. Each class will focus on basic knife skills and other techniques that will make cooking easier and more pleasurable. 

Sicilian cooking is the original 'fusion' cuisine, reflecting the cultures that have existed on the island for two millennia. While it shares much with Italian cuisine, it also shows influences from Greek, Spanish, Arab, North African, and even French cooking. Simple ingredients are combined to make delicious dishes. 

Arancini di Riso – Crispy Rice Balls 

Caponata - Eggplants in Agrodolce 

Zuppa di Pesce Siracusana – Siracusan Fish Soup 

Pasta cu Vracculu Arriminatu - Pasta with Cauliflower and Saffron
