Tastes of Sicily with Enza: sweet treats for Christmas & summer


Enza is a native Sicilian who loves sharing her culture with others. Come along to this fun and social evening, share a glass of vino, taste some delicious food and learn new recipes using traditional coooking techniques.

In this class, Enza will demonstrate how to make Torrone Siciliano (toffee almonds) a lovely gift to take to friends; cassata (ice cream cake) - a refreshing way to finish a meal; and cassadeteddi (ricotta turnovers).

In addition to teaching at Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre, Enza runs cooking classes and food tours to Sicily. You will be given a copy of the recipes so you can impress everyone at home. Learn some lovely sweet desserts and treats in time for summer barbeques and festive celebrations.
