"Tiny within the immensity of the wheat plain, overlooking the beautiful lake with crystalline water and the flourishing land dotted with cultivated fields and rich pastures". With this poetic portrayal, Giuseppe Tomasi of Lampedusa, in his book "Il Gattopardo", described Argivocale, the village in which we will meet Cesarina Rosa.
Located in the County of Monreale, Argivocale is the center of Sicily's breadbasket. Here, in a charming cottage, Rosa offers an authentic culinary Experience based on simple and traditional peasant dishes, to enjoy while immersed within a landscape of green prairies and crops that extend to the foot of Mount Jato, creating a kaleidoscope of colors. Our Cesarina will lead us to the rediscovery of typical Sicilian dishes created with excellent ingredients that originate exclusively from her agricultural-livestock family-owned farm.
The secret of the Cesarina
The ingredients for my dishes originate from the agricultural-livestock farm that I manage with my family.
