DISCOVER The Unforgettable Flavours

The unforgettable flavours of Sicilian cuisine and the best places where you can still enjoy them. A cuisine, often simple but always genuine, blending the products of the land and a unique variety of fish.

SICILY'S CULINARY

Sicily’s culinary heritage is a treasure: an exotic mix of various traditions and the rich taste of anchovies, hot peppers, garlic and the soft taste of fruits and herbs. Centuries of domination by various cultures have also enriched the range of typical local dishes with new flavours.

FISH, OLIVE OIL AND PASTA

Although there are many dishes which are extremely simple, as “verdure in pastella”, there are more elaborate ones such as the “arancine” and stuffed “sarde a beccafico” o “calamari ripieni”.
