The Sicilian cassata

Its sweet sensuality, from east to west of the island, has made it the real female icon of Sicilian pastry over time. “Ricotta” sister of the equally famous cannolo, the Sicilian cassata is a work of art to be enjoyed, whose preparation, like any object of pure beauty, requires love, dedication and great imagination: it is the final decoration, in fact , which makes each cassata different from the others, an interweaving of candied fruit that, with its colors, almost looks like an amazing ceramic or a mosaic with sinuous Arab references. The experience of the cooking class will teach you to choose the best raw materials, and ingredients such as sheep’s ricotta, sponge cake, real pasta and candied fruit will no longer have any secrets for you. You will learn to mix them together with awareness and creativity, personalizing your creation to your taste so much that you can say, at the end of the day, “This is my Sicilian cassata!” A journey full of suggestions, between the history of Sicily and its confectionery traditions, which have their origins in the Arab ability to work sugar and reach today through all the contaminations of the phenomenal pastry chefs who passed from Sicily in past centuries: a romantic and unique experience for the senses, among scents, flavors and colors that echo everywhere and reverberate in the world. The Cooking Class culminates in the tasting of Firriato’s meditation wines which, in combination, will perfectly enhance this sweet masterpiece of the Sicilian tradition.
