Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Ravioli pasta with seasonal stuffing
  • Cavatelli with Seasonal Toppings
  • Busiate fresh pasta with seasonal sauce/pesto

In my kitchen you will learn how to prepare two different fresh pasta doughs to make 3 traditional pasta shapes such as busiate, cavatelli, tagliatelle or ravioli. I will reveal all my secrets for making a perfect dough, a flavoursome filling and cooking the pasta al dente! We will use traditional tools such as rolling pins, ravioli cutters and most importantly our hands, the authentic tool to 'feel' the dough!

Fresh pasta will be seasoned with a traditional sauce following seasonality. In addition to preparing the recipes you will get to learn secrets and anecdotes about the history of the dishes. At the end of the preparation you will be able to taste the dishes made with a glass of an excellent local wine.

Highly recommended! Cesarine welcomed my daughter, granddaughter, and me into her lovely home for an evening we’ll always remember. The antipasti prepared for us to enjoy, the pastas and tiramisu we prepared together were perfect. Cesarine shared her knowledge of and passion for Sicilian cuisine and her respect for traditional methods.

Honestly, what an amazing experience. They definitely do not exaggerate with claiming a traditional Sicilian experience. The food was delicious, the location was beautiful and the hosts are very hospitable. Obviously they have a lot of knowledge on traditional cooking but they have a lot more stories to tell about Sicily and Italy. We can definitely recommend. This is a perfect night to taste traditional food, do a little cooking but mostly enjoy the wonderful care of the hosts. If you want to do more cooking yourself, maybe check out one of their other classes.

Our class with Alice was amazing! It was so easy to get to her apartment and her home was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Even before we arrived, she reached out and checked on our preferences to ensure the meal would be considerably prepared. She coached us through making different types of pasta while enriching our knowledge about Italian culture, cuisine, and her family’s cooking heritage. She provided thoughtful hospitality and consistent support during the lesson, as well as treated us to her homemade aperitivos, which were delicious! Finally, the entire meal was cooked to perfection. She made a delightful filling and sauce for each dish, for which she kindly sent me the recipes. We also made a decadent tiramisu that was better than any we’ve eaten at a restaurant. Along the way, we had interesting and easygoing conversations with plenty of laughs. Her partner Francesco was very helpful and a joy to be around as well. Overall, it was a beautiful evening of fun, cooking, and conversation that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a taste of real Italian cuisine and hospitality. We’d love to do it again!

We had the best time cooking with Alice and her husband! She was very knowledgeable but made the experience fun and personal. We felt very welcome in the their home and enjoyed getting to share a meal with them. I highly recommend doing any class with Alice! It was one of our favorite experiences of our trip!

"I was passionate about cooking and food since I was a child, accomplices grandmother who loved to cook and the whole family who loves to eat well. I therefore decided to pursue a university career in the field of gastronomy. I have faced a multidisciplinary and holistic path that has treated the world of food at 360 o'clock. I love cooking for my family and for others, starting from the choice of recipes and the selection of ingredients. I like to experiment and I'm particularly passionate about pastry and leavened foods. I do research on ancient cookbooks and asking around, especially older ladies, their family recipes. Sicily, like all Italy, has an invaluable gastronomic heritage, whose recipes and preparations vary from house to house, not only between cities and provinces. This gives the palate the opportunity to enjoy the same traditional dishes with different ingredients, techniques and stories."
