All the recipes and products in this Taste Experience are straight from the Ragusa area. We begin with a starter of caciocavallo cheese, which has always been a staple of popular Sicilian recipes. Next, Maria Carmela serves raviolina (little pasta parcels) in extra virgin olive oil. After this, we have the sfoglio, which is a stuffed puff pastry circle with a filling of ricotta, sausage pieces, and finely minced veal and pork.
The Taste Experience continues with a regional classic, the caponata, whose special ingredients include vegetables, almonds, sugar and vinegar.
We complete this Culinary Experience with a taste of Grandma Marianna's cake with a velvety cream made with toasted almonds that, as revealed by Maria Carmela, has always been used to celebrate the birthdays of family members.
