The Sicily Cookbook: Authentic Recipes from a Mediterranean Island (Hardcover)
Embark on the enchanting culinary journey and experience the culinary delights of the Sicilian diet.
Join Sicilian cook, writer, and photographer Cettina Vicenzino as she shares more than 70 authentic and mouth-watering recipes from this unique Mediterranean island. While only a few miles from Italy, Sicily's heritage is proudly distinct from that of the mainland, favoring dishes packed with spices, citrus fruits, cheeses, olives, tomatoes, eggplants, and seafood.
Featuring three strands of Sicilian cooking - Cucina Povera (peasant food), Cibo di Strada (street food), and Cucina dei Monsù (sophisticated food) - alongside profiles on local chefs and food producers, The Sicily Cookbook invites you to discover the island's culinary culture and let your summer cooking burst with Mediterranean sunshine.
