Meet the fruit and vegetable vendors to find out what’s in season, and the fishmonger to choose the fresh catch of the day.

You will learn to make some of his family recipes and Sicilian specialties, such as ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers, a rainbow of sautéed peppers, eggplant and zucchini caponata, stuffed artichokes, and fresh egg pasta. For your main, you will prepare a fish, meat or vegetarian dish, such as involtini (rolled stuffed beef), fish cooked Taormina-style, or polpette (meatballs).
