Pasta with shrimps and Pistachio from Bronte As good islanders, Sicilians often dress pasta with all sorts of crustaceans. The prawns, in particular, are among the favorites and in fact, we find them in many recipes of Sicilian cuisine. In the Mamma Corleones version they are enriched by the pistachio of Bronte, a product of excellence of our island.
Breadcrumbed mackerel or cod Sicilians love Mackerel fish most of all... It's a part of the blue fish category, and is a most common fish. Mackerel can be roasted, baked, fried, preserved in oil or grilled. Mamma Corleone offers us a soft and tender breaded mackerel, to be enjoyed warm.
Cannoli For the end of your incredible experience of this class, Mamma Corleone is very proud to teach you how to cook the real Cannoli. Cannoli is a real institution in Sicilia: This is a perfect balance between the crispy dough, and the softeness of the Ricotta Cream.
