Top 10 Food Experiences In Sicily

A US blogger has enshrined their Top 10 Food Experiences in Sicily. I have listed them here and added my own comments for further information.

  1. Fresh Ricotta. It is a well known secret that the Sicilian shepherds keep the best ricotta for themselves. Break into this inner circle and your taste buds will thank you.
  2. Cassata. And not like any cassata you haver tasted before. This is the real stuff.
  3. Gelato. Sicilians basically invented the stuff.
  4. Gelato in Brioche (sweet bread bun). Strange but incredibly addictive. After this you realise that this is the way gelato is supposed to be eaten.
  5. Watermelon Pudding. Only Sicily and North India share this exotic dessert in common. a relic from the ancient spice trade.
  6. Fragoline. Tiny, sweet, delicious strawberries.
  7. Arancine. Need I say more?
  8. Fruta di Mattorana. Actually made from real fruit...and are actually quite delicious.
  9. Seafood. In particular Tuna and Swordfish.
  10. Wine by the Carafe. Vini di Paesi or Vini Locale. Either will be good.
