My name is Chiara, I'm a sicilian food lover and photographer.
I chose Mattia (the chef) as companion of my life adventures and after many years travelling and working around the world we decided it was time to reconnect with our roots and our motherland, Sicily.
Together we started a project called PLANTE, which promotes typical Sicilian cuisine in a plant-based way but with a modern and professional touch, selecting only organic and super-local products from small farmers and following the seasonable side of our land.
Our events take place where we live, a beautiful old-fashioned Sicilian house in the city centre with a lovely terrace and a stunning view over Catania's Cathedral. We believe it is a unexpected hidden gem and we would love to share it with you and make you feel at home, while you discover with us our culture and cuisine!
Sharing is caring!
