Product Description

Review

"Think of ["Sicily"] as more of a travelogue, albeit one peppered with 50 recipes. . .This is the sort of cookbook where the full-page photograph alone of those "sarde a beccafico" could turn a sardine hater into a lover." - "LA Weekly"

"It seems home cooks can never get enough Italian. . ."Sicily" is sure to offer solid, traditional recipes from all of the island's provinces." - "Publishers Weekly", Top 10 Cookbooks for Spring

"Sicilian cuisine seems simple, with a splash of Marsala on the veal, a caponata on toast, couscous with seafood and a decorative cassata. But, as the new handsome "Sicily" explains, the island offers distinctive regional cuisines based on local products. . .And once you sizzle the veal Marsala from Trapani, you'll commit the straight forward recipe to memory and serve it often." - "The New York Times"

"To capture the entire sense of a place between the covers of one cookbook is no small task. Yet, here is a photo of bobbing fishing boats that feels so close that I can practically smell the salt water. And a woman making fresh couscous that I want to scoop with my hands, and a basket of silvery fresh-caught anchovies for dinner, and spirals of yellow pasta, and. . .and. . .and. "Sicily" is one of those cookbooks that transports and inspires." - "TheKitchn.com"
"This beautiful cookbook and travelogue features over 50 traditional recipes along with stunning photos that transport readers to the island. . .Both adventurous and traditional cooks will be thrilled and inspired by this unique and varied collection of Italian dishes." - "Publishers Weekly"

Format: Hardcover
Beautiful illustrations and finish of the cover with well written introduction to Sicilian cuisine.

The book has a good selection of authentic recipes from the Trapani, Palermo, Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Messina, Enna, Catania, Ragusa and Siracusa provinces. All are easy to follow and use simple ingredients. Whats more, this book is packed with info on each province as well as the history, regional customs and methods of food stuffs usage and preparation. It is beautifully put together with stunning photography. Just to leaf through this book is such a pleasant experience.

It certainly is a must have/ lovely present, worth every penny.

Since I have put my hands on stunning Phaidon's "Sicily" book from The Silver Spoon Kitchen series I was very curious how this combo (ice cream and brioche) would taste... Now I know and I must admit I could probably eat it every single day.

But "Sicily" has much more to offer than ice cream in a bread roll. The book is bursting with mouthwatering food images, relaxing landscapes and over 50 sunny recipes and interesting food stories from various provinces of Sicily: Trapani, Palermo, Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Messina, Enna, Catania, Ragusa and Siracusa... I'm particularly interested in the recipes from Ragusa as together with my husband we are big fans of Commissario Montalbano (Inspector Montalbano).
