Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Busiate (pasta) with pesto in the manner of Trapani
  • Homemade ravioli with seasonal filling
  • Gnocchi pasta with fresh tomato and basil sauce

Among the hills overlooking Palermo, near the town of Monreale, famous for its mosaics, is our house that welcomes you to its garden. During the class we will visit my small garden with its chickens, geese and trees. If the time is right we can also gather ingredients, for our recipes, during the walk.

We will make three types of fresh pasta together. Ravioli ripieni, busiate and gnocchetti. We will taste the pastas prepared together with seasonal seasonings, around the table in the garden. There will be good organic Sicilian wine to accompany the lunch/dinner.

Rosa was very welcoming from the first second! Very open and warm, and it was clear she is used to host. The food was great and showed some different tastes, in plenty portion sizes! We also got som great advice on the city!

A wonderful event! Rosa has been a lovely host. She gave me a lot of insights into cooking pasta and tiramisu. I recommend strongly to book a cooking class with Rosa. It turned out she is not only a good chef and host but also a great singer! Looking forward to the next cooking class!

Rosa welcomes her guests to her apartment in the heart of Ballarò. "I love to cook and experiment, but in the end I love to cook and eat Sicilian, using Sicilian products at Km 0. What I cook was taught to me by my mother, by aunts and grandmothers acquired over time. I am a singer and actress, so I love to sing while I cook and entertain my guests with songs and stories of our Sicily bedda. At my table, simple and well-finished, seasonal dishes, with attention for vegetarians and gluten intolerant. "
