At the last minute while on cruise docking the next day in Messina, I began searching the internet for some type of “food” experience and ran across Le Cesarine. I was able to make and confirm reservations for “Typical dining experience with cooking demo in Messina” online. When we docked and got off the ship, we were able to walk to the location in 20 minutes and enjoyed the local scenery on the way. It was apparent we where out of the “tourist zone” and into a urban neighborhood, which was a nice change from the crowded tourist area.

When we arrived, we were met by Maria Costanza Gugino who took us into her beautiful home and welcomed us as if we were old friends. After a nice tour of her home, she took us to the kitchen where we met her father who was helping with the lunch preparations. She quickly served us a glass of wine to accompany the snacks before appetizers. Next came a tray of salami and local cheeses to munch on while we watched her cooking demonstration which would become our forthcoming meal.

Maria prepared a sandwich type dish she called “poor people food”, which was a round load of wonderful homemade bread cut in half with part of the center torn out and replace with fried eggplant, fresh tomato, cheese, marinated eggplant spread, and more. FANTASTIC!!! This along with strips of fried eggplant were our second round of appetizers. All the while we’re enjoying the “show” as she prepared the tomato sauce and eggplant to go with our homemade pasta which had been prepared earlier that morning. She then moved on to the secondi, two beautiful beef rollatinis, one stuffed cheese and the other with tomato. This was all accompanied a beautiful fennel salad. And of course, more wine. “ECCELLENTE!!!”

Finally, we finished with a delicious dessert of pudding with fresh chocolate both inside and sprinkled on top.

We had enough wonderful food to last for days and it was all “PERFETTO”!!! But more importantly, was the experience. Within a few minutes Maria and her father made us feel like family. We were in her kitchen sharing the experience and then in her family dining room as if we were truly her family. “Papa” didn’t speak English, but the communication was there in actions and facial expressions. Maria’s cooking was only excelled by her passion for food, friends and making us feel like long lost family.

If you are ever in Messina, you must find Maria and book an experience with her. You’ll make a friend for life and enjoy one of the finest homecooked meals of your life. My words can do this justice you must review the photographs.
