Private Experience
Your experience
  • Colored bread topped with olive oil, oregano and local cherry tomatoes, olives
  • Stuffed fresh pasta with ricotta

We'll organize an interactive cooking class where you will have the opportunity to personally prepare the proposed dishes. We will start with a simple yet delicious appetizer: warm bread with oil, olives, and cherry tomatoes. Then, we'll knead the bread together, letting our imagination run wild with mixing colors. We'll continue with preparing ravioli filled with ricotta, and to conclude on a sweet note, we'll delight ourselves with homemade tiramisu.

Every dish will be prepared by you, allowing for a unique, fun, and, above all, tasty experience.

Mariella was so kind and welcoming. Her home is beautiful. She picked us up near the port and drove us to her home where she had all of the ingredients we needed. She showed us how to make a couple different appetizers and two types of pastas from scratch. The food was delicious and we learned so much! She did not speak English but we used lots of google translate and had great conversations. We would recommend this to anyone! It was a great way to learn more about Italian culture and cuisine.

Our cooking experience was outstanding! We cannot wait to use our new skills of making pasta. Mariella has a wonderful home and enjoyed meeting her family. Definitely memories we will treasure forever! We had a party of 4 and that includes a 14 year old.

Cooking with Mariella was one of the highlights of our trip. She picked us up near our cruise ship and drove us (safely and thoughtfully) to her home. We used Google translate and she was very helpful with both that and telling us about her beautiful city. We arrived at her lovely home and she quickly made us feel welcome and got us ready for a fun morning. We cooked several different kinds of pasta and bread and then dined on them for a wonderful lunch. We met her mother and sister who were great and som welcoming. I cannot recommend this experience enough. If you are visiting Messina, Sicily in a Cruise, this is an outstanding way to use your time there. Well worth the effort and cost and a great experience you will remember! Thank you Mariella!

My cuisine is linked to tradition with a touch of poetic license for some foods, which are too strong for me. Born and raised in Messina, I actually learned the Messina tradition when I grew up, because my parents were originally from Gioiosa Marea and Piraino, provinces of Messina but with several differences in methodology. I try to combine these diversities in a taste that is, I would say, pleasant. I like to know and above all I would like these traditions not to disappear.
