Giovanna welcomes us in Modica, a town not far from Ragusa. It's a charming town rich with history and immersed in the typical atmosphere of inland Sicily.
Our Cesarina guides on a journey through the flavors of this land, the flavors she fell in love with as a child. "My curiosity for folk traditions arose in the countryside as a child, when I was learning the recipes of the past. I watched my grandmother and other women in fascination as, with very simple ingredients, they succeeded at creating delicious dishes. I decided to feed my passion, thus beginning a journey through the ancient flavors of the tradition." They are the same flavors she brings to the table today, in a triumph of dishes as beautiful as they are delicious.
The secret of the Cesarina
Marjoram is my aromatic herb of choice - it infuses a note of delicacy into every dish.
