XIII COUS COUS FEST IN SAN VITO LO CAPO

 

Cous cous fest

The 13th Cous Cous festival of San Vito Lo Capo will be held from 21st to 26th September. It’s presented as a celebration of integration, a festival of peoples, traditions, cultures, sounds and emotions. Eight countries (Ivory Coast, France, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Palestine, Senegal and Tunisia) gather around a dish of couscous to inspire exchange, enhance the differences and celebrate the harmony of a ‘colourful world’ – a rainbow of cultures.

Cous Cous is an ingredient of Sicilian Cuisine that has been used, at least, since mid XVI century in Italian southern regions. During the Festival that will take place in the beautiful marine city of San Vito Lo Capo (Sicilian province of Trapani) nine chefs from the mentioned countries with a multitude of cous cous dishes will compete in the already traditional international competition. They will be evaluated by two panels of judges: the expert judges, food and wine journalists, and the People’s Panel, a hundred festival visitors who will vote for their favourite dish.
