The Cous Cous Fest

di Marco

Among the perfumes, colors and flavors from all over the world, the Cous Cous Fest is one of the most interesting gastronomic events of the summer of San Vito Lo Capo, the Cous Cous Fest.

What is it?

In a fantastic multi-ethnic atmosphere you can taste the many local and international variations of the Cous Cous at the Case del Cous Cous, taste the interpretations of great chefs at cooking shows, as well as the dishes of the chefs of the ten nations competing in the Couscous championships.

The Cous Cous is now inextricably linked to San Vito Lo Capo, it is no longer a simple recipe but a wonderful binder between different cultures and religions, between the desire to party and the desire for a better world!

It is a very common dish in North Africa,
It can be made with meat and vegetables, but here we prepare it with fish.

The couscous requires a really long preparation, it is cooked with love and a lot of patience!

In a terracotta dish the semolina is combined with water (here we say "incocciare") to form larger granules of semolina, and then add oil, salt, garlic, finely chopped onion, parsley and some spices, like pepper and cinnamon, but also almonds to give this wonderful food a rich and particular taste.

Thus begins the slow steaming process at very low heat which gives the semolina an unmistakable aroma.

When the Cous Cous Fest is?

International chefs, cooking challenges, great guests and a more cultural and in-depth program. The international festival of cultural integration iis scheduled from 15th to 24th September in San Vito Lo Capo.

Here at the end of September you can still take a dip in the most beautiful sea in Sicily, taking fantastic boat trips to Riserva dello Zingaro!

The Cooking Shows

The Garden of the Sanctuary will also host the Cooking Shows of great chefs and moments of in-depth study and entertainment with artists, guests and friends of the Fest.
