Location of the experience 

We will meet the local residents of Ragalna, a mountain village just 20 minutes away from Etna volcano – South Side. We will be with Sicilian housewives who will show us and teach us how to work Pasta dough and use the “knitting needle”, prepare sauces and cut vegetables, making the famous “Pasta alla Norma” or the “Pasta with Pistachios pesto of Etna!”. Once we’ve finished cooking, we’ll all sit together at the table for lunch or dinner (guests’ choice) to celebrate the experience.

The location is inside an ancient private millstone “u’ Palmentu” from the late 19th century, the place where our ancestors once harvested the grapes to make the good Etna red wine! During the experience, guests will have fun with the locals learning the “miniminagghie“, or tongue twisters in Sicilian dialect!
