Cecilia C.

Roma (RM) - Lazio

Cecilia, our Roman Cesarina, introduces herself: “The dishes I serve are of the Roman province, and particularly of Palestrina, which I learned to cook with the women of my family. I offer a Taste Experience that combines simpler vegetable-based dishes with more sophisticated dishes typical of holiday meals. I cultivate the ingredients I use with passion in my garden.

Although my family were not farmers, when I was a little girl I used to accompany my grandmother into the fields to collect chicory or borage to make fritters. In the Spring ,we would look for asparagus, and the end of the summer was the time of fennel. There was also the blackberry harvest for jams and the hunt for snails, and so on with the seasons. My passion began in this way, by getting to know my local products and then helping to cook them”.
