Sicily Eating And Drinking, Italy
Sicily's food is similar to its architecture, a meeting point between East and West: this "contamination" from different cultures has produced daring, successful mixes of tastes that make traditional Sicilian cuisine a fascinating, unique experience for the senses. Fish, the main ingredient used, is prepared in a thousand different ways, mixing it with the unusual, strong aromas of herbs and spices such as mint and wild fennel.
Sicilian cakes, from cassata through frutta martorana to Genovese from Erice, deserve a special mention, and so does the island’s wines, especially Nero d'Avola, a quality wine that is rapidly becoming famous overseas too.
