There is no better food on earth…than you will eat on our Sicily trip March 19-29 2020

There is no better food on earth…than you will eat on our Sicily trip March 19-29 2020

The March climate is warmed by mild Mediterranean breezes. Over the centuries Sicilian food was influenced by the Greeks, Spanish, French, Arabs and New World.  In fact the first cookbook with a known named author was written by a Sicilian cook in 5th century BC.

Here is what history cooks for our trip to Sicily and Malta

The Arabs donate apricots, spices, sugar, citrus, saffron and tropical fruits. Candied orange and other fresh sweets don’t keep so you have to eat them while traveling. Too bad.

Who doesn’t need more ceramics?

The French brought a love of meal dishes. Rich meat sauces over pasta? The first long and thin pasta was made in Sicily in 12c AD, ummmm.

The Spanish introduced New World cocoa. Gelato? Cassata with  chocolate bits? Easter eggs of chocolate- buy them in March for your celebrations. 

Greeks love olives, pistachios and veggies. Many meals will begin with a bowl of oily olives peppered just so. Most meals include fresh vegetables so vegetarians will be happy.

The sea gave the Sicilians all the fish they could eat. Our trip will include much seafood some on a bed of pasta.
