Your experience
  • Cavatelli with Seasonal Toppings
  • Sicilian agnolotti
  • Tiramisù

I love to prepare traditional Sicilian dishes and look forward to welcoming you to my charming 1913 villa in Messina, with a breathtaking view of the Strait. You will be welcomed with a unique gastronomic experience. We will begin with a welcome drink, offering varieties of samples, including fried anchovies, cheeses and more. Afterwards, we will immerse ourselves in the preparation of homemade pasta, opting for cavatelli and agnolotti with seasonally selected toppings, which may include ricotta or the classic sugo alla norma. Finally, we will conclude with the Italian dessert par excellence, tiramisu."

I cannot recommend this experience enough!! My husband and I were on our honeymoon, and wanted to experience a true Italian cooking class. This is that experience. We were welcomed into her home, learned about the culture, and even got to try some yummy Sicilian snacks before we dove in. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. This was the best part of our trip to Italy!!! Highly recommend!

This was one of the biggest highlights of our vacation to Italy and Greece!!! Daniela (and her mother in law Tina) were informative , fun and such gracious hosts!! It was interesting and fun to learn how to make different types of pasta and as a bonus cannolis ❤️. We felt welcome and very at ease in her beautiful home. Highly recommend to all. Thank you so much Daniela!

I may have already posted but I would rather post twice than not at all. My wife and I went with our three children (12,15,16). We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed learning to make pasta and spending time with Maria Daniela along with her family and friends. We are already planning to make pasta when we return home to the USA.

What an amazing experience! I went with my wife and three of our children (ages 12, 15, 16). She welcomed us into her home along with her friends. We had so much fun learning to make amazing dishes. Eating them was even better! Getting to know Daniela , her friends and family made it a truly unforgettable experience. I can’t recommend her enough!

Maria Daniela
Cesarina from 2019Location: Messina    Languages: Italian, English, Spanish
In Messina, there are many things to see: churches, palaces, fortifications, fountains, and monuments. But, to really get to know this city it is also a must to taste its typical dishes. So, you must therefore know the flavors and aromas typical of this part of Sicily and, the best place is at the home of our Cesarina. Maria Daniela loves the sea, and from the garden of her 1913 villa you can look out and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Strait of Messina. Together with her, you can learn how to make "maccheroncini al ferro" - the traditional fresh pasta that is seasons with the sauce -, and the Messina-style veal cutlets, which she learned to fill and roll since she was a child to help her mother and sisters in the kitchen.
