Flavours of Sicily
Fresh and vibrant recipes from a unique Mediterranean island
Discover the unique fusion of flavours that Sicilian food has to offer and bring some Mediterranean sunshine into your own kitchen with Ursula Ferrigno's warm and enthusiastic company.
Starting with antipasti, choose from Arancini di Riso (risotto balls) or Gustoso Olive Bianche (olive relish). Then discover vibrant salads, light soups and pasta dishes, as well as delicious meat and fish recipes. Sicilians notoriously have a sweet tooth and are among the best dessert-makers in Italy. Indulge in Pistachio Gelato, Cannoli (pastry tubes filled with sweetened ricotta) and possibly Sicily's most famous export, Cassata.
Sicily's unique food is bright, earthy and suffused with the intensity of the Sicilian sun. Not surprisingly, many of the typical dishes are made with fish and seafood. Cream and butter hardly ever feature; juicy tomatoes or the island's own fragrant olive oil is used instead. Sheep's milk ricotta is another staple ingredient, as are olives, wild fennel and citrus fruits. Here you'll discover authentic recipes for the best food Sicily has to offer.
