What you'll do

The "Busiate alla Trapanese" is a traditional recipe very popular among the Sicilian families. We will meet in my comfortable kitchen and we will prepare the dough with flour. After I will give you some tricks to create Busiate without using any expensive machines, so will be easy for you to prepare you own made pasta when you come back at home. I will show you how to create Busiate and more, so you will impress you family and friends enjoying the relaxing time we will spend together! After making pasta and vegetarian sauce, we will cook and finally eat together, as in the best Italian tradition!

I am Stefania and I am looking forward to introduce you to make Trapani traditional pasta: the Busiate. My Sicilian family makes pasta for generations: my grandmother and my mother learnt me the secrets of this original and healthy plate, one of the most typical of the Sicilian tradition. I have an organic farm situated in the countryside around Trapani, and I will provide all the most genuine ingredients to create this special pasta that you can not find in anywhere else in Italy!

Stefania made us feel very welcome and we felt comfortable from the beginning. While we were making the pasta (which was super good to learn) she told us a lot about Sicily and her life on the island. It was also awesome that she used local products and a special ecological flour to make the pasta. At the end we had Cannolo (a typical sicilian desert/sweet dish) and coffee. All in all it felt like we had a local experience and we really enjoyed our time at Stefanias place. Mille gracie!

We loved the pasta making experience with Maria. She was very welcoming and my two young daughters loved her. They especially enjoyed rolling the pasta shapes, and now we know how to do it it is something I'm sure we will do together as a family at home

La bonne humeur de Stephania est communicative, nous avons passé un excellent moment en sa compagnie. Elle a su nous faire partager sa passion pour sa région et sa culture. Je vous recommande vivement cette expérience

We had our best dinner on Sicily with Maria Stefania! With basic ingredients, some techniques she taught us and lots of fun we made our first very own Busiate! Easy to park near her house (no parking costs) in Trapani, she sets you to work on the dough, learns you to make the local busiate pasta, the sauce and some nice extra touches! If you like cooking and doing something different during your vacation, make pasta with Maria Stefania.

Marie Stefania est une honte très sympathique elle connaît bien son sujet vous met tout de suite à l aisé et les pâtes sont succulentes. Une belle expérience à renouveler si nous venons à Trapani.

We loved the personal touch of Maria in her private kitchen. She travelled around the world and is very interested in her guests. The cooking was fun and delicious!
