Beautiful photos and excellent recipes. I definitely will be visiting Sicily. One small criticism is that the recipes show oven temperatures in electric but do not include gas.

Being very fond of Sicilian food & cookery I was very pleased to discover this new publication and having ordered it eagerly looked forward to its arrival. When it arrived I was very pleased indeed, more so than originally anticipated. I adore this book and it will now be placed in 'my favorites' selection of Sicilian cookbooks. I have yet to actually try the recipes but I have a deep gut instinct that the recipes will deliver what the text and photos promise. It is a delightful book and I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is contemplating a first trip or holiday to Sicily. It most definitely contains all the classic dishes from this most beautiful island but the photos are superb and really represent just how beautiful this island is. From panoramic views to small photos showing the wonderful way in which pebbles are laid to create interesting paths (go to public gardens and you are guaranteed to see these, and of course, all those wonderful palms). I would very much recommend this book, particularly to those with a specific interest in Sicilia but also to those simply interested in fine food. Grazie a Lei Sig Darling-Gansser!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Beautiful Book! 14 Oct. 2012

Bought this as a gift for a dear friend who is Scilian. She flipped over it and we looked through it together. The photos are absolutely amazing and the recipes to die for! Thought it would be hardback, but its a hard cardboard, so it should withstand a lot of use. Now I think I want one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tour Of Sicily Through Food 24 Jan. 2012
By D. Formica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book could be used as a coffee table book. The photos of the Island taken as the author traveled South from Plarmo around the island to the North shore are beautiful. The photos along with the travel dialogue preceeding each geographical recipe section make the reader feel as though s/he are traveling with the author and the photographer. Some of the recipes are familiar to me and I look foreword to making some of the recipies with which I am not familiar especially those for fish and sweets. A wonderful hard cover book to own. I highly recomend it to people of Sicilian heritage, those intrested in Sicilian cusine, and those who want a coffee table book.
