Shared Experience
Your experience

    An immersion into my family kitchen; being the daughter of an art, I will let you savor home cooking with Mediterranean fragrances and flavors.

    My menu:

    eggplant rolls: this appetizer consists of slices of eggplant fried with typical cheese, rolled up, and covered with fresh tomato sauce.

    maccheroni with "arriminati" broccoli: this fresh pasta is dressed with a sauce made of broccoli, saffron, raisins, and pine nuts. It was featured as the recipe of the month in the Italian cooking magazine "Cucina Naturale" in November.

    cannoli: a delicacy waiting to be discovered.

    I hope this culinary journey into my family kitchen leaves you with a desire to explore the authentic flavors of the Mediterranean tradition. Welcome to my table!

    My daughter and I had a wonderful time learning to cook Italian pasta, being in the home of another Sicilian, and enjoying the fruits of our labor. I highly recommend this booking. Rosa and her husband and Friend were wonderful.

    We had a beautiful time cooking our meal with Rosa. We really enjoyed trying our creations after and talking to fellow participants. Thank you very much

    Such a fantastic experience!! A fun and informative cooking class, followed by a lovely group meal with Rosa Maria and her family. Absolutely one of our favorite experiences in Palermo

    Rosa María and her family are WONDERFUL. They were very smiling, welcoming and adorable to me and my fiancé. She is an amazing chef and she cooked us traditional Sicilian dishes that we had never heard of (which were incredible delicious) The whole experience was so special and unforgettable. I really appreciate everything they did for us. With love, Eloïs and Johnny

    The best pasta I had in Sicily was the pasta I made with Rosa Maria in her home in Palermo. We made a northern Italian pasta with fried zucchini and mint and a Sicilian pasta with aubergine and tomato sauce and both were simple yet superb. We also made a dolci called Genovese, which is a shortbread cookie with cream filling. Rosa Maria was expert and patient in guiding myself and teen daughter through the process of preparing the dough, rolling the dough and using the machine. Best cooking experience yet and lovely to then share the meal with her husband and live in nanny. Rosa Maria is passionate about her native food and a highly accomplished cook. You must try it!

    Rosa Maria
    Cesarina from 2018Location: Palermo    Languages: Italian, English, French
    In Sicily, particularly in Palermo, there is one singular regional cuisine: pasta, olive oil, vegetables and oily fish varieties, are the four cardinal staples. The dishes prepared by Rosa Maria reflect this tradition, revised with imagination and the desire to experiment, in keeping with the ancient recipes.

    Our Cesarina offers dishes inextricably linked to products and raw materials of the island; Rosa Maria welcomes us in Palermo but invites us to discover the aromas and flavors of Favignana, of Ustica and of San Vito Lo Capo.
