Siciliamo represents a culinary project that connects Sicily to Berlin, founded by an Italian-German duo. This initiative not only brings the flavors of the island to Germany, but also shares its rich culture and traditions.
The project was born from a shared passion for travel and cooking. During a stay in Thailand, the founders discovered that food is a powerful means to connect with a culture.

Sicilian cuisine in Berlin
Bringing Sicily to Berlin was a deliberate choice to share the richness of Sicilian cuisine with a cosmopolitan city. This approach not only enriches the Berlin culinary scene but also offers a taste of Sicilian authenticity to residents and visitors to the city. With increasing interest in Sicilian cuisine, Siciliamo sees this trend as an opportunity to promote tourism and investment in Sicily and to inspire other culinary activities to explore and incorporate elements of Sicilian tradition.
Workshops and tradition
Through its workshops, Siciliamo is committed to preserving Sicilian culinary traditions. These sessions offer not only cooking lessons but also a way to keep history and traditional techniques alive.
Siciliamo aims to expand its presence in Berlin, with the goal of opening a space that can accommodate cooking lessons, a store of Sicilian products, and a bistro, creating a real cultural and culinary meeting point. It is more than just a culinary experience; it is a journey into Sicilian culture. Through its courses and activities, the project invites Berliners and visitors to explore the rich heritage of this Italian region, celebrating its flavors and stories.
