We will guide you through the market explaining the names and the production secrets of the most typical sicilian products. We’ll meet the producers givig you the chance to ask questions and curiosities directly to them . During the walk in the market, with the support of the chef, we will buy some fresh product.

Learn more about Raffaele Maria

Raffaele Maria

I've always been passionate about food. In Sicily, where I live, there is a strong culinary tradition and has pervaded my life since childhood. That's why I decided to turn my passion into promoting quality excellences. Dishes baroque or discreet, elegant or very poor, but all of them semantic... a dish in Sicily is never simply something good to eat. It is an enchanted microcosm, an ancient story, a legend that wants to be told. During the creation of my project I came into contact with local farmers and artisans, strengthening my knowledge of local food products.
