Mamma and Nonna are goddesses at the stove – they swear by old house recipes and high-quality ingredients but know that these lose their value without careful and dedicated preparation. Pasta, pesce e pasticceria – i.e. noodles, fish and sweets, is the best way to describe Sicilian cuisine. It is a traditional, but very simple cuisine and yet varied. Shaped by the most diverse influences of foreign cultures and civilizations over centuries it is however a poor people’s cuisine, who mainly live off what grows in nature and in one’s own garden.
