The sicilian hand-made bread making-process
A daily riding for taking part in the hand-made bread making-process, by a family-run farm that is promoting and using ancient wheat.
The whole process that transforms the flour into bread will be done with the support of ancient tools (briula, maidda, etc.) and the bread will be baked in a traditional wood-burning oven.
All the typical products will be tasted during a picnic under the trees around the farm.
You will take part in the entire making-process, using some ancient tools as “maidda” and “briula”, from the flour to bread.
After the making- process, we will have a pic-nic in the shade of some trees around, and you will taste what you have made paired with other local food.
After we head toward a local water-mill and visit a farming heritage museum inside. The owner will show us how genuine flour was produced by using a millstone. Then the near Ispica canyon is worth a visit: take a walk through archeological ruins.
