I am an agriculture entrepreneur and my company is focused on cereal cultivations. In 2017, I decided to start using the ancient grain to produce a different kind of pasta. I also have a restaurant in my farm and I am a real expert of Sicilian food. My grandmother taught me the secrets of Sicilian pastry through the recipes of the tradition of failing handed down from generation to generation. I love cooking and I love sharing it with Others :)

Learning to do this dishes was so interesting! We couldn’t go to the farm due to bad weather but Paola kindly opened the doors of her house in Palermo. Food was delicious and I am looking forward trying it again on my own. Kind and entertaining class.

It was a wonderful day with Paola. I do it with my husband and my 6 years old daughter. Paola is sooooo loving, warm, sensitive and nice. We felt very comfortable. We walked through the market in Palermo, bought ingredients and were able to prepare pasta in Paola’s beautiful city home. The worlds best pasta we‘ve eaten, unique and soooooooooo delicious. We will definitely be back and we are looking forward to the next cooking class with Paola.

If you’re debating whether to do Paola’s cooking class, do it! Me and my girlfriend really loved our day trip to Paola’s farm where we made three different types of pasta and cannoli. We were greeted by a lovely breakfast buffet before getting stuck in. Paola was incredibly attentive and made sure everybody managed to keep up. We were treated to a delicious lunch that included our handmade pasta before being taken back to the train station with bags full of leftover cannoli. Since being back in the U.K. we have managed to successfully recreate the ravioli dish we made at the farm, which is testament to Paola’s wonderful teaching. We would thoroughly recommend!

If you are looking for a fun educational cultural experience through learning how to cook some traditional Sicilian food, this is the ultimate! Paola and her mother provide an amazing culinary journey in the course of a relaxing day in the country. We made (and ate!) three kinds of pasta with flour from ancient grains their family has grown on their farm for generations. Paola and her mother made the accompanying sauces and side dishes. Paola’s company was delightful and we enjoyed the experience immensely. She went above and beyond gracious hospitality meeting us at the train station, even when we missed our transfer, and even helped deliver cannoli we made to my cousin in Palermo. Her mother also made a delicious colazione and loaded us up with leftovers from our lunch. Don’t miss this opportunity if you can do it!

The best experience I’ve had on Airbnb! Paola, her mum and her dog Pino gave us the best day - from picking us up at the train station, to welcoming us with breakfast, to teaching us the story behind the pasta we were making. We ate a huge amount of incredible food, explored the farm and got to relax in the sunshine whilst digesting. When it was time to leave Paola even gave us leftovers to take home on the train. I can’t recommend the experience enough!
