Paola is originally from Sicily, but has lived in Trieste for years, a city that she now deeply loves. "It's my new home: modern yet ancient, maritime but linked karst plateau, with castles, palaces and the spectacular residence of Miramare." The capital of Friuli, with its rich history of influences, has truly won her over.
Influences which are also found in the local cuisine, fruit of melding between the Mediterranean and Central European cuisine. An example is the first courses and soups, but also the main courses based on meat and fish dishes. A fusion of different flavors that provides unique result and inviting results.
The secret of the Cesarina
My passion for cooking is rooted in my childhood. I remember with joy the excitement, the aromas, and sensations that preceded each party at my house.
