Celebrating a special occasion?
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!

We can't thank Chiara and Mattia enough for this unforgettable experience! It was such a special evening. The food, wine and atmosphere were absolutely beautiful. It is clear how much thought and attention they put into the entire evening, and it created such a memorable experience for us. They provided lovely company, and we enjoyed the relaxed conversation with them throughout the night. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily and we would highly recommend eating with Chiara and Mattia! Thank you both so much!
The cooking with Chiara and Mattia felt like a day with old friends who are sharing their passion for organic food. The two are lovely hosts who made us feel at home at their great place in the center of the city, Mattia is an amazing chef, we learned a lot - and the food tasted delicious. We had a great time, one of our best experiences in Sicily.
