Flavours of Sicily - Ursula Ferrigno

Hardback.   Very good condition.   2016

Discover the unique fusion of flavours that Sicilian food has to offer and bring some Mediterranean sunshine into your own kitchen with Ursula Ferrigno's warm and enthusiastic company.

Sicily is an intriguing place.  It is a beguiling place and its prominent position has led to repeated conquests over the centuries, which has left an extraordinary cultural legacy and a reputation as the melting pot of the Mediterranean.  It has one of the world's best cuisines thanks to the complex influences left behind by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans and Spanish who have each occupied this fertile land.  The island's unique food is bright, earthy and suffused with the intensity of the Sicilian sun.

Not surprisingly, many of the typical dishes are made with fish and seafood.  Cream and butter hardly ever feature; juicy tomatoes or the island's own fragrant olive oil is used instead.  Sheep's milk ricotta is another staple ingredient, as are black and green olives, wild fennel (which grows all over the hills) and the cultivated citrus fruits that are used in almost everything from salads to desserts.  Here you'll discover authentic recipes for the best food Sicily has to offer.
