Cooking at Baglio Fontanasalsa

Cooking amoungst the olive groves

The Olive groves at the baglio

Today we had our first cooking class with Senora Rossata at a beautiful olive grove called Baglio Fontanaslsa. The term “Baglio” refers to the courtyard of a country farm.  Baglio Fontanasisa offers a spectacular view of the farm’s olive grove, the sea, the Egadi Islands, and Mount Eurice. With total respect for the environment, life at the  “Baglio” follows the rhythum of nature. Exceptional Olive Oil is produced, there is an abundance of herbs and honey, and culinary specialties of the region prepared. Being in the kitchen with Chef Rosetta reminded me of preparing meals on Sunday with my Nona Gallo!
