Chef Donna Patrizia, Cooking Class in Sicily who is she?
Chef Donna Patricia is such a person. Born in Palermo from a Sicilian mother and Tunisian father, she loves to preserve the traditional taste and historical importance of Sicilian dishes. Throughout her cooking career she has catered for many large events and smaller, private dinners held in historical Palazzos always adhering to the strict standards of quality and freshness of well-made, Sicilian cuisine.
Her mission is not just teaching, but also preparing and empowering together, involving people, helping them to understand the history behind the dish and why certain ingredients are used in the place of others.
Chef Donna always meets her guests in the morning when the markets are at their peak vibrancy. Together you navigate the narrow alleys and many food stalls as you haggle with the street vendors to purchase only the freshest of ingredients required to begin your lesson.
The cooking studio is located inside an ancient Sicilian building, where you will enjoy a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Guests of Siciliandays and Chef Donna become partners with you in preparing a delicious Sicilian lunch by taking a journey into the past.
