Join us in the heart of agricultural Sicily to investigate a beyond the recipe approach to food. Experience life in rural Sicily and discover what it means to participate in a local food system. When it comes to learning, engage all of your senses to better understand the food world from local to global.
Lectures, tastings, and hands-on lessons both in the kitchen and on the land will engage your brain, your hands, and your taste buds as we move from soil to stove to spoon. You will learn how to open your eyes to the complexity of our food systems, grapple with concepts of biodiversity and agricultural labor, and consider the stereotypes that underlie our beliefs about traditional cuisines.
You do not need to be a professional chef, farmer, or food scholar. This program is open to all levels. You do need to be motivated by curiosity, passion, and a sense of responsibility to the world. Designed for anyone who wants to reconnect the simple act of eating to the marvel that lies behind it.
