Hola I’m Marylin.

Welcome to my Casa, a place where you’ll have a laugh while you fill your belly with amazingly wholesome home food. 

 Hi, I’m Marylin, a passionate culinary explorer embarked on a journey that would become Rossano’s Casa. With a heart full of flavours and a spirit as warm as a home-cooked meal, Rossano’s Casa was born out of a deep love for food, a profound connection to multicultural heritage, and a world of culinary traditions.

The story of Rossano’s Casa finds its roots in a family deeply committed to the art of cooking. From my mother’s Venezuelan origins, with aromas of paprika and cumin, to my father’s Syrian heritage, renowned for robust spices and zesty yogurt, my upbringing was a feast of exotic and delightful flavours.

In Rossano’s Casa, you’ll discover a taste of it all – simple, flavour-packed, fun, and proven foodie-tested recipes. Join my table to feast at my supper club in my Western Sydney studio or have me curate a food and tablescape experience for you and your dearest at your home. 

The fusion of cultures and flavours in her life inspired me to become a recipe developer and cookbook author. My creations embodied the duality of my own tastes: bold and robust on one hand, simple and natural on the other. I understand the challenges of a busy life and celebrate every time I cook a winner that her whole family adore.

In Rossano’s Casa, you’ll discover a taste of it all – simple, flavour-packed, fun, and proven foodie-tested recipes. The essence of the brand, Rossano’s Casa, is deeply rooted in a set of core values: cultural appreciation, connection, and the sheer joy of sharing a meal with loved ones. Rossano’s Casa is the embodiment of hospitality, bringing people together over the enchanting magic of food. So, whether you’re seeking an authentic family recipe, a unique dining experience, or a culinary adventure, Rossano’s Casa is here to welcome you to the table, one delicious story at a time.

Buon Appetito!

My Story

You might be wondering where all my multicultural recipe ideas and obsession with food and cooking comes from. For that, I thank my family.

See, my Mum is an amazing cook who grew up in Venezuela. In fact, in her family, everyone is a good cook… so much so that her family ran their own catering company.

Mum’s Venezualen family flavours include paprika, cumin and fresh herbs.

Meanwhile, my Dad is from the other side of the world: Aleppo, Syria, known as food central in the region. Aleppo’s flavours are closer to Turkish cuisine, using robust spices and a balance of salty and sour (yum!). And my Dad’s mum was also an amazing cook.

Dad’s Syrian family flavours include cumin, Aleppo chilli, mint and zesty yoghurt.

So it’s no surprise I grew up eating the most delicious, exotic (well, to other people) food and flavours and ended up being a recipe developer and cookbook author.

And then I met my husband whose family hail from Puglia in Southern Italy where they’re known for their seafood.

My husband Joe’s Southern Italian family flavours are all about letting the seafood and fresh ingredients shine with simplicity.

You might be wondering what kind of recipe developer these ingredients produce… A fusion of flavours and cultures which translates to new, exciting flavours in my recipes.

See, part of me loves robust, full-on flavours and part of me loves simple. What that means in my recipes are either spiced and seasoned with lots of aromats or they showcase the natural flavours of the ingredients.

As a mum and business owner I’m also busy, so there are nights where we’ll have toasties (mine are just foodie toasties), and where I just CBF and want an easy recipe. And yep, I quietly celebrate any time I make a winner the whole family eats.

In my Casa you’ll get a taste of all of that – simple, flavourful, fun, proven foodie-tested recipes. Buon Appetito! / Bil-hanā’ wa ash-shifā’ / ¡Buen apetito!
