Street food workshop with Cotti in Fragranza
Available on Fridays
A cooking lesson with “Cotti in Fragranza”, a social cooperative that reintegrates in need people in a center for migrants and people with disabilities. We will cook Sicilian street food delicacies and taste wine in an experience of community awakening.
An encounter, more than a simple cooking lesson, where the storytelling of Cotti in Fragranza is mixed with the ingredients, warmed up with the energy of the people who work here and finally savored all together in a joyful atmosphere. Cotti in Fragranza is a social cooperative that creates Sicilian flavors with innovation and social commitment, through its handmade and tasteful products it creates pay-back and social inclusion for those in need. The social action of Cotti in Fragranza developed from the Malaspina juvenile prison to the Casa San Francesco kitchen, a center for migrants and disabled people in the heart of Ballarò district. The cooking workshop lasts one hour, from 6 pm to 7 pm; the chef Francesco Gambino, together with the guys of the House, will pass from history of the recipes to the making of some Sicilian masterpieces of street food such as Panelle and Crocchè, Arancine and other musts of the Sicilian rotisserie. They will tell us how this social project helped to change and recover their dignity. We will end up with an aperitif of delights and a tasting of Tenute Orestiadi wines, produced by a cooperative of winemakers and the Orestiadi Foundation, who enhances some areas of Sicily through cultural events. It will also be possible to visit the structure, the terrace and the garden of Casa San Francesco.
