I have been to see  the exhibition Sicily Culture and Conquest at The British Musem.

The exhibition was excellent.

The  British Museum also offered a Sicilian Inspired menu to experience the flavours of the island.

Here is some of the food.

Stuffed squid: Calamari Ripieni ( was the antipasto). Bread crumbs are usually  used for stuffing but this was stuffed with Freekeh,  a modern  touch as this ingredient does not feature in Sicilian cooking.

In my recipe ** Calamari Ripieni the squid is stuffed with fresh cheese ( Formaggio Fresco).
