It has been told the program of the seventeenth edition of the Cous Cous Fest in the beautiful San Vito Lo Capo, which has received this important recognition of the 5 sails from Legambiente and the Italian Touring Club for the beauty and cleanliness of the sea and the beaches and the efficiency of the services offered - 5th place, but equally prestigious in the national ranking of guidablu.

It could not be otherwise given the exponential growth in terms of tourist numbers and satisfaction that the event made ​​its debut record to date.

This is why it is good to start talking about it even now, even if the highly anticipated event will be held from the 23rd to the 28th of September. Not surprisingly, Sicily and San Vito, were recently counted by the famous newspaper Repubblica as among the best destinations as regards the summer program of events.

An appointment that has continued for sixteen years, with the delicious typical dish of couscous from Trapani always at its centre, inherited from ancient traditions and much more distant places, geographically speaking. A symbol of good cooking but also of integration, making it a veritable cultural ans social event , thus going beyond the simple culinary aspect. Not only tastings and culinary delights in the Gourmet Village will come to life, but also performances and the participation of national and international artists, in addition to the presence of local craft products with the Expo Village.

The programme of events was published on the 10th of August and there will be the presence of the internationally acclaimed chef Claudio Sadler - awarded 2 Michelin stars - or his stellar colleague Giancarlo Morelli, but also chefs of other nationalities, as anticipated at the beginning, such as the Palestinians Hani Kasabri and Oden Abul Hawa.

Last year chefs from Palestine took part - as we wrote, and also confirmed for this new edition are chefs from Israel, Tunisia, Senegal, Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast, and even the United States, for the first time in the history of event. Again this year, all the recipes will be judged by a special jury composed of professional chefs and well-known, renowned journalists and, inevitably, by tasters and "food lovers".

Last year, tourists and visitors were able to attend two concert events free of charge. Not any old singers, but Max Gazzč, a veteran of the Sanremo Festival - with a fun solo album coming out made together with colleagues and friends Nicolō Fabi and Daniele Silvestri - and the extraordinary singer-songwriter Francesco De Gregori, who having produced songs such as "Rimmel," "La donna Cannone" and "Generale" does not need any special introduction.
Also of note, the appreciable performance - also free - of Sud Sound System, a characteristic band pioneered by the so-called "Italian ragamuffin", an interesting variant of reggae.

2014 Cous Cous Fest Programme

The event in 2014 will see many new attractions and many confirmed attractions scattered along the streets of the charming village of San Vito lo Capo.
First of all, every day, from 12 to 24, you can visit, on the beach, the reconstruction of a Berber oasis in the event called Al Waha.
Several cous cous houses will be able to be seen at the gastronomic village, from the house of cous cous in San Vito lo Capo to the Mediterranean one, ending in one dedicated to the cous cous in the world.

For the most patient and curious, a cous-cous school has been set up where  experienced teachers will pass on the ancient art of preparing this exotic dish.
An Expo village will complete the picture with a stand where you can buy ethnic handicrafts, spices, clothing and much more.

This year, the administration decided to combine two events under the same banner: the Cous Cous Fest and Tempuricapuna event, dedicated to the bluefish that, in past years, had its own event period.
Thus, there will be a space for tasting fried fish in Marinella Piazza San Vito lo Capo, a few metres from the famous beach, every day, from 12 to 24.
