From appetizers to desserts, Sicilian cuisine appeals to all the senses. The secret lies above all in Sicily’s numerous rulers of ancient times. They brought their typical culinary traditions that the Sicilians reinterpreted.
The Greeks, for example, established their love for genuine and simple products, and the Arabs brought with them the signature combination of sweet and sour or the use of raisins and pine nuts in pasta, spicy dishes, and desserts stuffed with cinnamon or ricotta.
The Normans, on the other hand, shared with the Sicilians their salting and drying techniques of the great Atlantic cods, the Spaniards their elaborate dishes like the arancini, and baked pasta, and the French the use of shortpastry, etc.
