Your experience
  • Cacio all'argentiera with oregano bread croutons
  • Pasta with Sicilian broccoli (chi vrocculi incaciati)
  • Sicilian cannoli

I will welcome you to my home in the historic center of Palermo in the multiethnic and colorful Ballarò district.

Together we will take a culinary journey through some traditional dishes dear to me and you will see how I make the famous "cannolo siciliano." You will drink organic Sicilian wine from Cantine Sant'Antonio, water, coffee and homemade liqueurs (subject to availability). Every ingredient on the table will be seasonal and km 0. The flour used for the cannoli is organic Sicilian ancient flour and the ricotta and from Sicilian sheep in protected pastures. I will be happy to accommodate dietary needs and allergies.

Wonderful, fantastic experience. Rosa is a truly warm, loving and interesting person with a great singing voice. Also a good cook! Thank you for the prickly pear liquor

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 was a wonderful host. Very warm and friendly, and a great singer to accompany the cooking. It was lovely to meet a local and another traveller (it was 2 of us doing the class). The atmosphere was really relaxed and I had a lot of fun. A really great option for solo travellers. Also appreciated that I was allocated a host so close to my accommodation.

I had such a great evening. I am not a very good cook but rosa was very kind and patient. I learned a lot about sicilian pasta and history. The whole evening was perfect. Rosa is an extremely nice host, very welcoming. Rosa is not just a very good cook but also a talented artist and singer. She sang for me all the time :)

Rosa - September 2023

Amazing! Vegetables from her garden, wonderful cocktails, stories about Sicily, and special family recipes. I've never made pasta before but I'll do it again. Thank you Rosa and Cesarine!

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. "
