Sicilians love life and love their seafood.
• Sicilian Seafood Cooking offers an exciting collection of recipes
bursting with authentic flavours, evoking the colours and smells
of the island and celebrating the rich variety of a cuisine shaped
by Greek, French, Arab and Spanish influences, by the bounty
caught in the surrounding seas and harvested from the land.
• A collection of 120 unusual, traditional recipes for seafood
and its accompaniments—including a great variety of first and
second-course dishes, food for feasts, special sauces and
delicious vegetables. There are no less that nine recipes for the
classic Sicilian dish, caponata.
• Enjoy a culinary journey around Sicily, using seasonal produce
and traditional cooking methods and techniques, layered
with fascinating information about the origins of recipes and
information about sustainability issues. This book has all the
warmth of a summer’s visit to Sicily and celebrates the great diversity of Sicilian food, which is intensely regional.
• The recipes contain seafood equivalents you’ll find anywhere,
so your local seafood can be used in authentic Sicilian style.
• The wealth of material offered will inspire menus, celebrate
good food and help create feasts around a dining table that won’t
be forgotten soon.
