The prince of shellfish is going to be the protagonist of the next three days in Mazara del Vallo, Western Sicily. I am obviously talking about the RED PRAWN, which is one of the most sought-after quality of prawns in the Mediterranean sea and is typical of the area of Mazara, in the province of Trapani.

Organized by a cultural association "Innovazione e Cultura", the event will start tomorrow the 23rd of July and will end Sunday the 26th at the Hotel Mahara. There will be workshops, conversations about food and cooking shows where three chefs from the last edition of Masterchef Italy (Filippo Cassano, Arianna Contenti and Giuseppe Garozzo Zannini Quirini) will cook this amazing sea product in different ways, explaining all the steps of their recipes.

I am sure this occasion will be an excellent starting point for letting visitors try this superb seafood of our territory and discover the area of Trapani and Mazara more and more, area which has a lot to offer to tourists in terms of delicious food but also breathtaking spots and history. 
And to give even more importance to this event on saturday 25th the Mazara Council has decided to have a "white night", which means that museums, shops and commercial activities in general should remain open even at night to allow visitors to see, taste, appreciate the best of our local products.

Suggestion: while you are there, why not passing by some amazing locations like San Vito Lo Capo, Marsala, the Saline in Trapani or Erice? What better opportunity than this to spend some exciting days in Western Sicily? The red prawn and not only the red prawn is waiting for you.
