authentic sicilian recipes

My parents were from Sicily, so authentic Sicilian recipes and food are in my DNA.

Traditional Sicilian recipes feature a lot of fish, ricotta cheese, and vegetables, and pasta, of course! From breakfast to dinner, Sicily is a precious inspiration for any cook.

Don’t be shy, wear your apron, your cooking jeans (yes, those already spotted), and grab the knife. It’s time to slice a few eggplants, boil some tomato passata, and cook tons of pasta.
Don’t panic: most are easy recipes, like the Trapanese pesto. And if you have good, fresh ingredients, most of the work is already done!

Call your friends for a Sicilian themed dinner; they’ll thank you forever.
