Making Sicilian bread with Nonna Nina

Maletto, ItalyCall For Price Full Day

In many small towns in Southern Italy, it is customary to make bread once or twice a week. Nonna (Grandma) Nina does exactly that: she makes Sicilian bread in a stone, wood-burning oven. Because firing the oven and letting the stone reach the adequate temperature takes time, one never makes just bread. Sometimes neighbors will join to make cookies or other delicious treats that are ideal for baking in a stone oven. During the process, you will enjoy snacks and lunch with typical local products at the house of Nonna Nina in the countryside near Maletto, where no matter what your destination is you can enjoy breathtaking views of Mt. Etna. It’s an ideal way to take a break from the usual tourist routine and be surrounded by the culture of the place, and perhaps even pick up a few Sicilian dialect words — the locals love it when you try, and they have lots of patience to teach you!
