Sicily food and drink
Sicily food and drink Sicilian food constitutes one of Italy’s most varied cuisines. This is due to Sicily’s rich heritage and the fact that the island had a wealthy aristocracy who would dine extravagantly living alongside a poor peasant population who survived on subsistence food. You can find local fresh products such as swordfish, sardines, ricotta cheese, chilies, aubergines, olives, capers and almonds. If its home cooking or eating out you enjoy there is an abundance of choice available. Local wines are very good to. Eating out in Sicily When you eat out in Sicily you can expect the food to be spicey, hot and sweet, much more so than on the mainland. All the typical Italian dishes are on offer, fish is predominantly on the menu, especially swordfish. Of course you wouldn't be in Italy without pasta and Sicily is no exception, a speciality is a pasta sauce of pine nuts, capers and peppers along with sardines, known locally as Pasta con le sarde. Stuffed cannoli tubes are another favourite as are almond based desserts. The Sicilians are highly reputed chefs.
