The hospitality at Feudi del Pisciotto is complete with the Restaurant Il Palmento di Feudi and the Cooking School developed in collaboration with Le Cirque restaurant of New York.
The restaurant is found in the suggestive area carved out between ancient beams and columns overlooking the scenic barrel room below by way of a transparent crystal floor. Il Palmento di Feudi proposes a gourmet experience of Sicilian ingredients, which are plentiful thanks to the favorable location of the estate in which sea and land bring out the best of the island’s produce.
As of March 2018, the kitchen is entrusted to the dynamic 35 year old chef Christian De Simone of nearby Ragusa, whose former experiences have led him from Trentino, to Tuscany, to Puglia (where he cooked under the legendary Gianfranco Vissani at the Antica Masseria dell’Alta Murgia), until returning to his origins and touching home turf in Sicily at the Grand Hotel Ortigia in 2014. A strong regional appreciation met with contemporary technique and refinement defines Christian’s cooking style which is enforced by a strong, articulated understanding of the island.
Typical regional recipes, with a predisposition for fish both noble and underprivileged and a profound reliance on vegetables and dairy products that are abundant in Sicily in both variety and quality, interpreted with health-minded contemporary techniques comprise the gourmet vocabulary of Il Palmento dei Feudi, which aims to become a gourmet destination of the area, both for the local public as well as a national and international audience, the latter to which is dedicated the Cooking School Le Cirque at Feudi del Pisciotto, developed in collaboration with the iconic restaurant of the Maccioni family. A school that organizes residential courses, spanning from 2-3 days or up to 2 weeks in length, aimed at the discovery of the secrets of Sicilian Gastronomy, strategically positioned on the island to discover nature, culture and the scents of the Trinacria, crossroad of a myriad of civilizations from the Greeks to the Arabs to the Turks to the Normans, whom each left their culinary heritage in a unique stratification unlike any other in the history of the world.
The restaurant Il Palmento di Feudi will remain closed until March, when it will be the moment to inaugurate a new season full of surprises.
