Your experience
  • Eggplant parmigiana or caponata (sweet-and-sour Sicilian dish made of fried aubergines, capers, olives and celery)
  • Busiate (a type of long macaroni)
  • Lemon gelo or melon gelo

My cuisine is inspired by the typical recipes of Sicily and in particular the Catania tradition. The dishes I offer my guests are prepared with seasonal and local ingredients purchased in the historic markets of the city of Catania. Among the appetizers I choose local cured meats and cheeses. I love making fresh pasta in traditional Sicilian formats: cavatelli, busiate, dressed with fresh tomato and basil sauce or seasonal vegetables. My workhorse is parmigiana or caponata alla catanese. As dessert I like to offer my guests lemon or melon frost.

Un pomeriggio passato in spensieratezza e allegria. Marilù ed Enzo sono due padroni di casa eccellenti, mio marito, mia figlia ed io ci siamo sentiti come a casa. Abbiamo finalmente imparato a fare le busiate, che da oggi non mancheranno più sulla mia tavola. Il tiramisù fatto insieme a Marilù è il più buono mai mangiato!

Bellissima esperienza! Grazie a Marilù ho imparato a fare la pasta fatta in casa! Abbiamo poi cenato ed era tutto buonissimo e genuino! Da rifare magari anche in un’altra città!

Cesarina from 2022Location: Catania    Languages: Italian and English
I am Marilù, your Cesarina in Catania. I look forward to cooking together and letting you taste a variety of traditional dishes that I prepare with love. We will get our hands dirty and make fresh pasta together using fresh and genuine ingredients purchased directly at the open-air market in Catania. Guests will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in all stages of dish preparation. My specialties include egg ravioli and tagliatelle, busiate and cavatelli (Sicilian fresh pasta), scacce, scacciate, and focaccias. My standout dishes are eggplant Parmesan and Sicilian-style caponata. To end on a sweet note, we cannot miss tiramisu, a dessert loved by all, as well as traditional Sicilian sweets: lemon or melon ice and sesame nougat.
