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!

What an experience! We were a party of six and wanted a private cooking experience, Rosa Maria did not disappoint. We were welcomed warmly into her and Massimo’s home and from the start the whole event was flawless. Rosa Maria is clearly an outstanding cook and she perfectly guided us through the menu and we were all included in the process which was fun and entertaining. One of our group is not known for cooking and yet with her guidance he loved the process and was thoroughly engaged. It was the highlight of the vacation and the lunch was delicious. We are left with fabulous memories and recipes to try at home. It’s a must!

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.
