Re-experience the tradition

La Timpa Experience, a culinary journey to the discovery of Sicilian enogastronomic culture with our cooking class. From the ancient wheat grains straight to the dish. Surrounded by an unusual scenario you will learn how to prepare simple and traditional dishes, but perfectly made.

We organize, on request, three different cooking class programme, with the use of our ancient grain flours produced by La Timpa Mill.

  1. Fresh Pasta: with this program you will learn how to make fresh pasta, regular like cavati and stuffed pasta, like ravioli and tortelli. Our pasta is particularly porous, with ancient flavors and a quite interesting consistency, all of that enriched with our fresh sauces made with tomatoes, basil, spices, local produced cheeses and vegetable;
  2. Focaccia cooking class: you’re preparing with us three different kind of “scacce”, typical of Ragusa province, Campagnola with Ragusano PDO cheese and tomatoes sauce, eggplant scaccia and tomasino, with ricotta cheese and sausage.
