Every experience is reviewed for authentic culinary traditions.
I'm a sicilian cook! My experience is strictly family. A culinary tradition handed down from father to daughter and from mother to son, with my grandmother. Cooking for me is passion, tradition, culture. I have always organized dinners with friends, acquiring organizational experience over time and transforming my ability into activity over time. I prepare traditional Sicilian dishes: caponatina, arancini, Nebrodi pork sauce, matalotta fish and much more. My engineering studies make me a precise and organized person, very attentive to details and cleanliness
