What you'll do

Cooking is my passion!
The love that I have for Cooking was handed down by my parents, renowned restaurateurs in Siracusa, and by both of my grandmothers, one of them being apulian and the other one, sicilian.
I have always organized meals for my relatives and friends, creating a warm and informal atmosphere, as the one you can find at home.
I make dishes that are typical in the Sicilian' Cooking such as the caponata, the arancini and the impanate. I also make recipes that come from Puglia, as for example the cuculi and the focaccine ripiene e fritte; always respecting the tradition and the authenticity of each meal.
I love simple but strong flavors and my knowledge of local herbs makes our dishes unique, satisfying even the needs of those who are vegetarians or intolerant.

Great experience for us, we are happy that we choosed Violas class out of all cooking classes. It was only me and my fiance cooking with Valentina and Angela at their lovely house. We had very personal, traditional, funny and really enjoyable time:) They made all shopping, including fresh fish from local market. We made traditional hand made pasta, fish, bruschetta and canolli. We enjoyed our lunch together with bottle of local wine&dessert with coffee at their terrace listening stories and knowing more about each other. It was GREAT VALUE for money and definitely more special experience than cooking with any professional chef in the restaurants kitchen. Ladies are giving all hearts into it, they do it out of passion and love, more than to earn money.
