Flavours of Sicily: Fresh and Vibrant Recipes from a Unique Mediterranean Island

    By

    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. Sicily is an intriguing place. It is a beguiling place and its prominent position has led to repeated conquests over the centuries, which has left an extraordinary cultural legacy and a reputation as the melting pot of the Mediterranean. The island'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, starting with antipasti. Choose from Arancini di Riso risotto balls or Gustoso Olive Bianche olive relish. Vibrant salads such as Insalata di Tarocchi blood orange and red onion salad are perfect for the summer as are the light soups and pasta dishes including Minestra di Tenerumi courgette leaf and fresh tomato soup or Pasta Picchi Pacchi spaghetti with almond and tomato pesto. Delicious meat and fish recipes include Sarde a Beccaficco stuffed sardines, and Abbacchio alla Cacciatovia pan-fried Spring lamb with herb and anchovy sauce. 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.
