I was in Sicily in May and spent days in Ragusa where my father’s family still live.
While I was there, my aunt invited the extended family to go to a masseria – a farm where they make local cheese.
We ate warm ricotta, sampled some of their other cheeses…
…..and ate scacce with a variety of fillings – too many.
Recipes: See – SCACCE (focaccia-like stuffed bread)
Ragusani ( people from Ragusa) are very fond of local cheeses and over my many visits to Ragusa I have eaten large quantities of cheese.
I found an early post about Cheese and a visit to a masseria. Habits do not change very much in Ragusa.
See: SICILIAN CHEESE MAKING. A VISIT TO A MASSARO (farmer-cheese maker) IN RAGUSA. and with a recipe for pan fried cheese with oregano, garlic, a bit of sugar and vinegar. Formaggio all’argentiera.
In Melbourne we have La Latteria….worth a visit if you wish to eat cheese made by a Sicilian.
