Event description
Join SUITCASE Magazine in a Sicilian feast to celebrate the launch of The Taste Issue with chef Emilia Strazzanti.

About this Event

The winter 2019 issue of SUITCASE is an epicurean grand tour of wild shorelines, low-key city neighbourhoods and sun-soaked islands the world over, including the fertile soils of Sicily. We joined Sicilian Chef Emilia Strazzanti for the first “Strazzanti in Sicily” culinary retreat at villa Angheli, near Menfi, designed with luxury villa rental company The Thinking Traveller to immerse guests in the Sicilian way of life with a week of cookery classes, wine tastings, curated tours and meals in hidden hotspots.

Guests of our Sicilian supper club will experience a snippet of Sicily in Spitalfields, with three courses and canapés cooked by Emilia and drawn from the pages of our story. Benk + Bo will be transformed into a communal table evoking Sicily by moonlight and channelling the Sicilian spirit of sharing. Wine pairings will be provided by Sicilian winery Planeta and all guests will receive a goodie bag courtesy of The Thinking Traveller alongside a copy of The Taste Issue of SUITCASE (worth £9).
