Ancient Restaurant Discovered At Himera, Where We’ll Be Cooking

In yesterday’s La Repubblica Palermo newspaper, an article explained that at the site of the ancient Greek city of Himera, they have discovered the 6th Century B.C.E. remains of a caffetteria-style restaurant. Ovens, stoves, pots, pans, and plates have been excavated. I visited Himera and met the director of the site back in June with chef Giuseppe Sciurca, who will be hosting our third cooking class during September’s Stirring Sicily tour from Sept. 19 to 26 that I’m co-hosting with chef Antonino Elia . We’ll have our lesson at the foot of the archaeological site’s Temple of Victory, pictured. It’s pretty cool that they’ve just announced this ancient food-related discovery, right where we’ll be cooking in Sicily!
