5th World Week of Italian Cuisine (Scotland) | Cooking in Sicily, a Cooking competition

Our Scotland Office will close the World Week of Italian Cuisine with Cooking in Sicily, a Cooking competition with Chef Bonetta dell’Oglio and Sommelier Mariella Caputo – in partnership with Ambasciatori del Gusto (the Italian Association of Ambassadors of Taste – whose members focus on enhancing Italian food and wine heritage). The online event will involve 30 people winning the chance to cook a specially designed dish in their own kitchens through a cookery demonstration beamed live from Sicily with leading chef Bonetta dell’Oglio.

The lucky home cooks will also have the chance to ask questions to Palermo-born Chef dell’Oglio who has won widespread praise for her innovative cooking which celebrates her Sicilian heritage and her passion for showcasing organic agriculture and the benefits of healthy eating. There will also be a wine pairing presentation from Mariella Caputo from Ambasciatori del Gusto.

The participants will be judged on their dishe with the winner scooping a luxury Italian food hamper from sponsors Pastificio dei Campi and Berlucchi Wines. Details of how to enter the competition will be made available on our Scotland Office’s social media channels and the ones of the Italian Institute of Culture in Edinburgh.

The event will also be screened live over the internet to allow other Italian cooking enthusiasts to watch and make the menu.

Partners: Italian Institute of Culture (Edinburgh) and Consulate General of Italy for Scotland and Northern Ireland
