Sicily


A stunning cookbook containing more than 50 authentic recipes from the tables of Sicily, the most characterful region of Italy


Editions:

Price: USD$39.95

Featuring more than 50 simple and authentic recipes from the Silver Spoon kitchen, Sicily is a culinary journey through an island that is unique among the many regions of Italy. Sicily’s position away from the mainland, its blend of Arabic and Mediterranean influences and its sun-drenched climate have led to the evolution of one of the country’s most distinct and exciting cuisines.

Each chapter examines one of Sicily’s provinces, with fascinating narrative texts examining the key produce and ingredients that are found in each area, such as pasta with sardines from Palermo, and couscous from Trapani, interwoven with the recipes. Each recipe is accompanied by a stunning image of the finished dish, and the beautiful and diverse landscape of Sicily, its produce and its people are illustrated in specially commissioned photographs.

"To capture the entire sense of a place between the covers of one cookbook is no small task. Yet, here is a photo of bobbing fishing boats that feels so close that I can practically smell the salt water. And a woman making fresh couscous that I want to scoop with my hands, and a basket of silvery fresh-caught anchovies for dinner, and spirals of yellow pasta, and... and... and... Sicily is one of those cookbooks that transports and inspires."—TheKitchn.com

"Sicilian cuisine seems simple, with a splash of Marsala on the veal, a caponata on toast, couscous with seafood and a decorative cassata. But, as the new handsome Sicily explains, the island offers distinctive regional cuisines based on local products... And once you sizzle the veal Marsala from Trapani, you'll commit the straight forward recipe to memory and serve it often."—The New York Times
