ABOUT GIUSEPPE SCIURCA of Sciurca Sicilian Chef.

Hailing from the village of Petralia Sottana in the province of Palermo, Sicily, chef Giuseppe Sciurca cultivated his passion for cooking from his mother Angela starting at a young age. Under her tutelage he mastered typical Sicilian dishes ranging from those sourced from her home in the Madonie Mountains to the coastal towns of the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea. After working in the restaurant industry for many years and running his own acclaimed restaurant, Sciurca founded Cosmo Nature-Tourismo, Cultura e Ambiente to promote Sicilian culture through food, wine, hands-on cooking experiences, fruit and vegetable cultivation in his garden, and countryside excursions. Along with his partner and collaborator Valeria Signorino, Sciurca creates remarkable experiences for tourists to Sicily and Sicilians alike. Among many of his notable projects is revisiting the tradition of the Pupi di zucchero, expertly crafted sugar figures ritually eaten by children for generations for the Day of the Dead.
