Ciao, my name is Giusi, born and raised in Palermo. After 10 years abroad, I came back to my town, following the luke of arancine!
Since I was a child, my favorite dish and comfort food is pasta with green peas. Growing up, I have improved the recipe and sometimes I propose it during formal dinners at my place
I love strolling around and getting lost in the narrow alleys, discovering new corners of my city. See you in Palermo!
