I am completely and utterly in love with Sicily! When I think of what to eat in Sicily, the list could get very long. The history of Sicily is complicated and totally unique. Sicily is Mediterranean through and through. This beautiful island was invaded for 25 centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Arabs, North Africans, Byzantines, Goths, Spaniards, Persians, Bourbons. All of these different people left their mark on Sicily’s archeology and most notably, in its cuisine.
These were the pizzas we tried one very hot afternoon when we also were enjoying the arancini. The pizza was very cheap and it was very good! If you have a small budget for lunch, street food is the way to go while in Sicily!!
Biscotti Sicilian cookies are out of this world. Some are very simple, like the ones photographed below, and some are more ornate and many of them are made with almost paste (2nd photo below). The cookies on the left are the famous S cookies that are made with fennel seeds. The ones on the right are simple cookies without any notable flavor that are perfect to dip in your cappuccino or caffe latte for breakfast. The almond cookies are light and amazing. Sicily grows the most incredible almonds. The cookies are chewy and so very soft made with almond paste.
I hope you enjoyed this little taste of Sicily and that it made you hungry! I will be back soon with some more photos and recipes! I’m still catching up on putting together the 1,000’s of photos from our trip!! Ciao and thanks for stopping by!!
