Traditional dishes of Sicily and the Italian countryside
"A meal so good you want to serenade it with sexy Dean Martin songs!”--theStranger 12/07

For Sicily, geography has
always been destiny. The rocky isle, a land mass the size of Vermont,
rises from the Mediterranean like a giant pebble kicked by the toe of
Italy. Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans viewed it as a strategic
military and cultural outpost.
Ringed by rich waters and
covered with dense forests, amazingly fertile hillsides and ancient
vineyards, Sicily is both a crucible of original recipes and a
melting pot of culinary traditions.
A meal in Sicily is more than simple
generosity, it's abbondanza:
a surfeit of good things to eat and drink. For everyday, a lavish
buffet. For gala occasions, a cornucopia of antipasti, multiple
courses of pasta, endless meat and vegetable platters, and an
infinity of desserts. “Mangia!” they
say. And, good guests, you should!
