The chronicle of a journey to discover Sicilian cuisine, revisited recipes from yesteryear and some wonderful encounters.
The author tells us about her intimate and sentimental relationship with Sicily, where she has lived for several years. She also pays tribute to the islanders who dedicate their lives to the good and the beautiful. There are also portraits of local women producers.
Each of the 60 recipes is accompanied by advice, as in the case of Poudre d'or:
"This powder is ideal for adding a lemony flavour to dishes even when fresh lemon is not available. It can also be used to flavour sauces and sprinkled over yeast dough".
Amélie Panigai revisits the recipes of yesteryear in a gourmet Mediterranean. Amélie Panigai is committed to a healthy, organic diet that respects the living world. Here, she celebrates delicious local produce.
