•A look at Sicilian traditions and ingredients in the kitchen, with recipes from real people (instead of chefs), carrying on their culinary heritage day by day
•Includes 30 recipes
Sicilian cuisine is known as curtigghiu – of the courtyard – with recipes passed from door to door and from generation to generation by word of mouth. Influenced by the endless crossing of cultures that is Sicily’s history, its food is as rich in tradition as it is in taste. Here this mingling of Europe, Italy, the Middle East and North Africa is celebrated in 30 recipes chosen by Maite and Marie and photographed – both landscapes and finished dishes – by Maurizio Maurizi.
