Festive Sicilian cooking class

Come and join Carla in her Sicilian cooking class to prepare a true Sicilian favourite. Each recipe is based around what Come and join Carla on her online cooking class to prepare some authentic festive dishes from Sicily! Carla will be preparing two dishes with you and as Christmas is a time for families she has selected two of her family favourites. First of all we have Pasta con i broccoli arriminati, a pasta comforting dish with broccoli, pine nuts, anchovy and breadcrumbs. Following this is the star of the show, Arista di maiale con prugne e pure di mele, a roast pork loin with prunes and an apple puree. Enjoy both of these with your favourite Sicilian wine and toast to the coming festivities.
