Your experience
  • Grandmother salad
  • Tagliatelle with almod pesto and basil
  • Tiramisù

I love to enrich traditional dishes with a modern twist, respecting, indeed, enhancing the scents and flavors of our land.

I will explain how to prepare three typical dishes. Grandma's salad, a typical dish of Catanese folk tradition, becomes a gourmet dish when quality ingredients are used, such as datterini, oregano "scopazza," soft salted ricotta, and e.v.o. nocellara dell'Etna oil. Almond pesto pasta, a traditional recipe from Catania, is enhanced by new scents and flavors, such as lemon zest, etc. Tiramisu, a dessert now traditional in all parts of Italy, becomes "Sicilian" with the addition of "marsala" wine. Before all this you can enjoy various samples of Sicilian tradition.

Our evening with Maurizio and his charming sister exceeded our expectations.From the appetizers through dessert, all of the dishes were incredible. We enjoyed learning to make pasta, tiramisu and pork cutlets under the supervision of this entertaining brother and sister team. To top off the evening, Mauricio treated us by sharing his musical talent, playing our favorite Billy Joel hits on the piano. Our evening hosted by Maurizio will definitely be remembered as a highlight of our time in Catania.

I highly recommend doing this, it was so much fun. When we arrived at Chef Maurizio’s house there was a table full of antipasto and refreshments waiting for us. Did not take long for Chef Maurizio and his lovely sister to put us to work making the pasta. That’s when the fun started, there were eggshells in the dough and they started bickering, like siblings do, on who was at fault, this was so funny. I over soaked the lady finger for the tiramisu on purpose so I could get in on the bickering :) It really felt like I was at home cooking with my family. They had us laughing, slicing, dicing and drinking throughout the day. Everybody participated in the cooking and laughing. So be prepared to work and eat. But the memories will remain forever!

My main expertise lies in pasta dishes, but I don't underestimate the importance of velvety soups and meat and fish entrees. My culinary creations draw inspiration from traditional Sicilian and Calabrian recipes, reinterpreted with a modern twist. I prefer using local ingredients, so-called "zero kilometer" products, to create a unique harmony that enhances the authentic colors, fragrances, and flavors of our region. I invite you to try a pasta dish seasoned with my almond and basil pesto, or an intriguing pistachio and sun-dried tomato pesto. I also offer delightful options made with red tuna and mint; pork or beef fillet enriched with vintage vinegar and white onion cream; potato meatloaf embellished with red tuna and capers. And to sweetly conclude, I propose traditional desserts made with ricotta or pistachio cream, among many other delicacies.
