lectures, workshop, cooking, wine tasting and food pairing
The team of the Associazione Art. Cult. “A Rocca” and Eprojectconsult International department, in cooperation with schools in Germany and Finland, hosted a group in the frame of the Erasmus+ programme. We hosted 6 selected participants, 4 from Germany and 2 from Finland. They participated in a training course in the field of Food and Wine.
The training course was a combination of lectures, workshop, cooking, wine tasting and food pairing exercises had been used to develop an understanding of how to pair wines with food at an advanced level.
The participants learned to prepare typical Sicilian dishes, and to combine these dishes with different wines. They also learned how to set up the famous Italian “aperitivo” and how to bake typical Italian bread. Thanks to the local restaurants they also got to enjoy many different Italian and Sicilian dishes every day. The participants also had the chance to visit some beautiful places in Sicily, including Taormina, Palermo, Cefalù and Milazzo. We hope that their experience of living abroad was unforgettable and enriching in many different ways
At the end of the project, participants received “A Rocca” placement certificate”. Most importantly the participants gained professional experience in their sector, and will surely make use of this experience back in Germany and Finland. Consequently, the participants seemed to be satisfied with this project, and from their evaluations it is clear that they feel it was an interesting and useful experience. We are satisfied with the seemingly flawless success of the project and hope that we can continue our cooperation with both Finland and Germany!
