Sara’s taste experience begins with a typical Sicilian dish, the delicious ‘caponata’, a starter that showcases the best of traditional mediterranean ingredients: aubergines, tomatoes, celery, onions, olives and capers are served in a ‘sweet and sour’ sauce. 

For the first course, we have Sicilian maccheroni pasta in a pork ragù sauce. The second course makes use of the area’s fresh and fragrant citrus fruits, meatballs served with lemon leaves. This is accompanied by roast vegetables. 

You can’t say you’ve visited Sicily until you’ve tried a cannolo, and Sara knows this well… To finish, she prepares Sicilian cannoli, one of the island’s most iconic desserts, filled with sweet and creamy ricotta. Delicious!

Sara welcomes us into her home in Taormina, a jewel in Sicily’s crown famous for its stunning countryside and fascinating history and archaeology, not to mention its cuisine! This region represents the meeting of cultures, resulting in a mixture of traditions that can be tasted in its traditional dishes. Discovering Taormina and Sicily is a joy both for the heart and the palate! 

Sara’s dedication to Sicilian cuisine is the result of a lifetime of enjoying her local cuisine, leaving her with many recipes passed down through the generations of her family. “You can discover so much about Sicily’s history through its traditional food”, she explains, “there have been so many influences on the island over the years; Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman, Swabian, Aragon… And each one left its own unique imprint on the architecture, culture and even on the dialects we use today.”

The secret of the Cesarina
"Sicily's very essence is hidden in its vast variety of traditional dishes, a melting-pot of many cultures."
