Recipes From An Italian IslandBook - 2016
In Sicily , Italian aficionados Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi head to the island to immerse themselves in diverse food scene, and soak up the varied landscapes. Thanks to its rich history Sicilian food has Italian, Greek, Spanish, French and Arab influences, making the food full of exotic flavours and extremely delicious. Starting in the capital, Palermo, the couple come across some exciting street food that features tasty Arancini (rice balls stuffed with meat sauce and cheese) to Sfincione, a thick Sicilian pizza, topped with tomatoes, onions, anchovies and casciocavallo cheese. Heading to Noto, almonds feature in some of Italy's most memorable desserts including a classic Semifreddo to a refreshing Almond Granita (served with fresh brioche, for dunking). No Sicilian book would be complete without Pasta Alla Norma (pasta with tomatoes and eggplants) and the classic, ricotta-filled sweet delight Cannoli. Join Katie and Giancarlo as they wander along the Arab domes and arches, Byzantine mosaics, baroque stucco work and Norman palace walls. Sicily is a stunning cookbook and visual feast of one of Italy's most amazing destinations.
