This is a journey through traditional Sicilian flavours: Rosa Maria begins her Taste Experience with a lentil soup that is traditionally prepared by families on the island of Ustica. She continues with a first course of spaghetti with tuna roe, which is another island-inspired dish, this time from Favignana. 

We continue with another typical dish; couscous with wild fennel and scabbardfish, an oily fish that is famously prepared in San Vito lo Capo, on the north-west tip of Sicilym near Palermo. 

For the second course, we come inland for some culinary inspiration with a delicious eggplant caponata. And last but not least, for dessert Rosa Maria serves tempting almond parfait with hot chocolate and Reginella cookies, accompanied by sweetly fragrant Malvasia dessert wine.

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. 

The secret of the Cesarina
One of my secrets in the kitchen is my fresh, homemade tomato sauce.
