Join us for a Sicilian supper at Londons Norma restaurant

Aubergine Parmigiana, Norma restaurant

Sicily is one of those destinations that has a peculiar effect on visitors. They write lavish words about its poetically crumbling towns and sing-song street markets, time-travel through its baroque towns, and hold its food up as being quite possibly the best in the world, rooted in the landscape and passed-down-through-generations traditions. DH Lawrence and Goethe came to the island and were transfixed. So was British chef Ben Tish. ‘My first visit to Sicily was to the east side,’ says Tish. ‘Catania and Taormina, where it’s hard not to be blown away by the vegetables. Everything is bigger, better and more vibrant than anywhere else – the tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, aubergines all bursting with flavour. One of my top discoveries in Taormina is Tischi Toschi, where my favourite dish is probably the wild-fennel and gram-flour fritter with fennel mayonnaise.’

Back in London, Tish opened Norma in Fitzrovia last year, the first independent restaurant project from the owners of The Stafford hotel, set across three lively floors and with a menu that reads as a love letter to Sicilian recipes. For this event, readers will be able to feast on freshly made focaccia and truffle gnocchi, wild-garlic fritti and aubergine parmigiana or chicken and toasted spelt wrapped in the charcoal scent of the barbecue – all matched to delicious wines. Our partner is Oceania Cruises, which has a reputation for some of the finest dining on the seven seas, kitting out its fleet with inquisitive chefs who pride themselves on creating inventive plates using artisanal ingredients and inspired by countries around the globe. Guests will be able to plot their own voyage during a short Q&A session with Oceania’s managing director Bernard Carter and corporate executive chef Franck Garanger, with advice on choosing the right cruise – including, perhaps, the ideal route for reaching Sicily’s olive and lemon trees.
