Your experience
  • Colorful ravioli (plating with seasonal vegetable hues)
  • Tagliatelle fresh with tomato, eggplant and parmigiano
  • Tiramisu or cannoli or white and black

Our adventure will begin with a toast and continue with an engaging experience: we will prepare colorful ravioli together, mixing vegetables such as spinach, beets or saffron into the flour to give a fun twist to the dish. Next, we will prepare delicious noodles topped with cherry tomatoes, eggplant and Parmesan cheese, enriched with a freshly made sauce. Finally, I will share with you the secrets of making a tiramisu, which you will prepare with your own hands.

Cooking with Mariella was one of the highlights of our trip. She picked us up near our cruise ship and drove us (safely and thoughtfully) to her home. We used Google translate and she was very helpful with both that and telling us about her beautiful city. We arrived at her lovely home and she quickly made us feel welcome and got us ready for a fun morning. We cooked several different kinds of pasta and bread and then dined on them for a wonderful lunch. We met her mother and sister who were great and som welcoming. I cannot recommend this experience enough. If you are visiting Messina, Sicily in a Cruise, this is an outstanding way to use your time there. Well worth the effort and cost and a great experience you will remember! Thank you Mariella!

This was an amazing experience. Mariella was so kind and patient and the location was beautiful. We made delicious pasta and tiramisu. Would definitely recommend and would definitely do it again!

My family and I had the most wonderful dinner with Mariella! The food was outstanding, original and perfectly prepared and served. Mariella explained everything as she cooked. We had an amazing evening in her beautiful home with a feast fit for royalty. Not only did we love the meal but also the warm and engaging conversation with Mariella and her husband Gianni. This was a most special and unique experience. We will definitely do it again on our next visit to Messina!

My cuisine is linked to tradition with a touch of poetic license for some foods, which are too strong for me. Born and raised in Messina, I actually learned the Messina tradition when I grew up, because my parents were originally from Gioiosa Marea and Piraino, provinces of Messina but with several differences in methodology. I try to combine these diversities in a taste that is, I would say, pleasant. I like to know and above all I would like these traditions not to disappear.
