Inventing traditions with Chef Giuffrè in Trapani


Peppe Giuffrè is one of Italy’s go-to chefs for anyone organising an unforgettable event. When Google organised a Gala Dinner at Selinunte in Sicily, they called on Chef Giuffrè and his team to cater for their guests, who included everyone who’s anyone, from Bill Gates to David Beckham.

Guests of The Thinking Traveller staying in the west of Sicily may discover the delicious secrets of Chef Giuffre's inventive take on traditional Sicilian recipes at a workshop in Trapani.
