My mother and I had a fantastic time with Trina. Visiting Catania market was a great experience, and we had free time to explore on our own too. The next day Trina welcomed us in to her beautiful apartment and showed us how to cook some truly delicious food using very local ingredients. It was a great experience and Trina is such a wonderful person, it felt like spending time with a friend, not someone we met the day before! :)

Trina goes above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at ease. Deviding the trip to the market in Catania on Saturday and the cooking class on Sunday is well thought out, otherwise the day would have been too long. In Catania we visited the market after which we had time off to do some sightseeing. For those wo don’t like eggplant (Aubergine) like me, the tarte Trina makes of it was really good ! On top of that, we enjoyed our lunch with a glass of wine on the terras overlooking the Corso Umberto (main street). I would suggest to buy some Bronte Pistacho’s at the market for the trip home since they can only be bought in Sicily. Thank you Trina for your time spent with us! Rudi & Nadine

Trina hat sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert. Sowohl in der Kommunikation vor dem Event als auch währenddessen. Meine Freundin verträgt weder Gluten noch Milchprodukte und das hat sie bei der Planung des Menüs berücksichtigt. Wir haben tolle, regionale Rezepte zubereitet, die wir definitiv zuhause nachkochen werden. Auf ihrer fantastischen Dachterrasse konnten wir die Früchte unserer Arbeit genießen und dabei einen besonderen Blick auf Taormina werfen. Trina war sehr herzlich und hat auch ein paar persönliche Einblick in ihr Leben gewährt. Es war ihr wirklich wichtig, dass wir uns bei ihr zuhause fühlen, was von der ersten Minute an der Fall war. Da sie gut Englisch spricht, konnten wir uns nicht nur verständigen, sondern richtige Gespräche führen. Wir würden jederzeit gerne wieder mit ihr zusammen kochen. Es war ein großartiges Erlebnis in Sizilien!
