What you'll do

We want to invite you to have a typical homemade sicilian meal in our beautiful countryside, surrounded by olive trees and unspoiled nature! We’ll eat outdoor under a big olive tree, otherwise indoor in our stone house if weather won’t allow. You will discover the real taste of genuine food, because we don’t use industrial ingredients! Before cooking we will take a walk in our land to gather some of the ingredients we will use, such as fresh vegetables from our organic garden (tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, zucchini and the huge “Giarratana” onions in summertime) and wild herbs that we'll teach you to recognise. We will tell you the story of our old stone house and how we restored it slowly by ourselves. We will be happy to answer all your questions about our lifestyle and our land! After that you can help us cooking: we really love to cook "scacce" (our tipical street food), homemade pasta and pizza with organic flour from an ancient stone mill. Our favourite condiments are sauce from our tomatoes and of course our extra virgin olive oil from "Tonda Iblea" olive trees. During lunch you can taste organic "Nero d'Avola" red wine (or fresh "Insolia" white wine in summertime) from a prestigious local winery near home. I declare that this activity meets the guidelines for food handling based on the Five Key Points for Safer Food Program of the Pan American Healt Organization.

Your hosts

We are Simona & Davide, a couple of philosophers, and Ulisse, our child. We live in a sunny untouched place in Sicily near Ragusa, in a tipical old sicilian country house that we restored by ourselves. We have embraced a simple and slow way of life, far away from city traffic and without TV. We share the passion for good food since university, when we had fun cooking for friends and colleagues. We are convinced that true taste is not found in pre-packaged foods or in the ingredients that can be bought at supermarkets. We sincerely believe that the flavors that Sicily can offer are the best in the world! For us is very important to use the best genuine ingredients: for this reason in our land we are practicing organic farming, so we can grow most of the vegetables we eat (above all our "siccagni" tomatoes and our extra-virgin olive oil!).

Where you'll be

Casa Filosofica (meaning “Philosophical House”) is the place where we live, connecting nature, culture and good food. Our house is surrounded by a lot of olive trees, many fruit trees (like orange and lemon trees, indian figs, figs, pomegranates, pear, plum, almond and carob trees) and also some very old oaks, pines and cypresses. There is a small cave in our land, and a creek flows through our valley if in wintertime it rains enough.

More tips

If the weather will be too bad (sometime it happens also in Sicily!) probably we won’t be able to take a walk, but we’ll still have lunch with our products and we will spend more time in the kitchen.
