What You’ll Do
Kathleen Avino is a person of many talents, and in this three-hour experience, she shares a number of them—as well as a hearty meal for good measure. In her 19th century limestone, you’ll learn a bit about Sicilian history and culture before preparing a meal with your fellow participants, just as Kathleen has been doing with her family since she was old enough to reach the counter.
You’ll help prepare three traditional Sicilian dishes—an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert—and will take home the recipes for each.
A sample menu may begin with panelle or caponata, continue on to a main course of pasta con sarde or pasta pie with eggs, and conclude with rich cannoli.
Uncover the Future
Kathleen, a psychic and medium with more than 20 years experience, will answer a question of each guests’ choosing, using spirit guides to respond as honestly and accurately as possible.
Sicilian Cook and Psychic
Yes, Kathleen Avino is a psychic, but that’s not what makes it easy for her to predict the quality of her cuisine. She began cooking at her grandparents’ elbows as a small child, and has spent the years since preparing authentic Sicilian meals with family and friends. It’s one of many gifts the former professor, construction manager, and world traveler possesses, including serving as psychic and medium for more than two decades.
