SCIACCA: AN IMMERSIVE SENSORY JOURNEY FROM LAND TO SEA
Three engaging stages that offer unique experiences.
From the secrets of transforming wheat into couscous in the Antico Mulino, to the preparation of fish couscous at the Grotte del Caricatore following centuries-old culinary traditions.
The journey, with the active participation of visitors, is enriched by a walk in the historic center of Sciacca.
Becoming part of the couscous preparation process, discovering ancient artisanal crafts and enjoying an authentic lunch, prepared with your own hands, adds a unique emotional depth to this journey.
Sicilian cuisine is very varied precisely because it has been influenced by many civilizations that have inhabited this wonderful land over the centuries.
Couscous is a great example of this. Its origins are very ancient, it came to us during the Arab domination, but the traditional Moroccan recipe made with meat and vegetables is replaced by the one with the freshest fish just caught in the Mediterranean Sea.
In western Sicily, this dish continues to amaze and delight the palate.
Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the thousand-year-old traditions of Sciacca and take home indelible memories of an emotional and authentic journey.
