Your menu
  • Small
  • Tagliolini o green tagliatelle
  • Spinach pumpkin potatoes gnocchi

In my special culinary course, I offer you the chance to learn how to make three types of fresh homemade pasta, you can choose from potato, pumpkin or spinach gnocchi, topped with a creamy parmesan or gorgonzola sauce.

Second pasta we will make white red green noodles or tagliatelle topped with mushrooms or truffle or simply Alfredo. Finally as a third fresh pasta I propose an almond paste dessert that we will make from scratch starting with almond flour and color it green and make small cassatines, a particular Sicilian dessert with ricotta cream.

RosaMaria is very organized and made the cooking class fun. I learned new ways to prepare pizza dough, onions, a cake roll. She made it seem effortless and conveys her joy of cooking with each dish. She explained sources of foods, the history and had anecdotes to make it memorable. I practiced Italian and she practiced English. We had a win-win class followed by a lovely lunch with her family. I highly recommend cooking classes with RosaMaria

A wonderful woman, a great experience, and above all, marvelous dishes. We cooked very quickly because we understood each other perfectly - sometimes even without words, just like in a well-functioning restaurant. We also received recipes so we could replicate the dishes at home. The meals we prepared together were ceremoniously eaten at the hospitable threshold of Rosa Maria - her apartment is wonderful. We are very happy that we could meet and we in 100% will recommend everyone an encounter with authentic Italian cuisine and a wonderful Italian lady. We are eager for another lesson when we are in Palermo.

This cooking class was amazing! Rosa was very informative, helpful, and fun! She spoke English which was very helpful. We also met her husband and her coworker. He loved talking to them all! The food was very delicious and the tiramisu was to die for. I can not wait to bring the recipes back home. I would recommend Rosa to anyone and would definitely book with her again!!

What an Amazing night! Rosa was so much fun and i learned amazing cooking techniques. I would highly recommend this opportunity. Rosa’s comedy is worth the price of admission alone… nevermind the expert cooking advice. What a great night! Thank you Rosa!

Rosa Maria
Cesarina from 2018Location: Palermo    Languages: Italian, English, French
In Sicily, particularly in Palermo, there is one singular regional cuisine: pasta, olive oil, vegetables and oily fish varieties, are the four cardinal staples. The dishes prepared by Rosa Maria reflect this tradition, revised with imagination and the desire to experiment, in keeping with the ancient recipes.

Our Cesarina offers dishes inextricably linked to products and raw materials of the island; Rosa Maria welcomes us in Palermo but invites us to discover the aromas and flavors of Favignana, of Ustica and of San Vito Lo Capo.
