The cooking experience was wonderful! I really really liked it and definitely would recommend it! Rosa Maria is a really lovely person and makes sure, everybody understands what she is doing and that everbody will know how the paricular steps are working. I lover her kitchen und her whole appartment! It was great and if I have the chance, maybe I can come back and cook another menu with her.

RosaMaria is very organized and made the cooking class fun. I learned new ways to prepare pizza dough, onions, a cake roll. She made it seem effortless and conveys her joy of cooking with each dish. She explained sources of foods, the history and had anecdotes to make it memorable. I practiced Italian and she practiced English. We had a win-win class followed by a lovely lunch with her family. I highly recommend cooking classes with RosaMaria

A wonderful woman, a great experience, and above all, marvelous dishes. We cooked very quickly because we understood each other perfectly - sometimes even without words, just like in a well-functioning restaurant. We also received recipes so we could replicate the dishes at home. The meals we prepared together were ceremoniously eaten at the hospitable threshold of Rosa Maria - her apartment is wonderful. We are very happy that we could meet and we in 100% will recommend everyone an encounter with authentic Italian cuisine and a wonderful Italian lady. We are eager for another lesson when we are in Palermo.

Great experience!!! Cesarine is a very accomplished chef and a great teacher. Dinner was fantastic & the dessert was amazing. We had a lovely time getting to know Cesarine and her husband. They are the perfect hosts. Their apartment is lovely, great location. I highly recommend this experience

This cooking class was amazing! Rosa was very informative, helpful, and fun! She spoke English which was very helpful. We also met her husband and her coworker. He loved talking to them all! The food was very delicious and the tiramisu was to die for. I can not wait to bring the recipes back home. I would recommend Rosa to anyone and would definitely book with her again!!

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.
