Sicilian Recipes from The Bernardo Winery

Sicilian cuisine is simple and unpretentious. It uses ingredients that are in season and

at the peak of their flavor. Sicilian cooking aims to preserve the flavor, texture, and

wholesomeness of fresh ingredients. This traditional cooking style is so ingrained in Sicilian

culture that in Sicily it is virtually impossible to find non-seasonal fruit or vegetables at a

grocery store.

Today, Americans are increasingly rediscovering the joys of cooking and eating the oldfashioned

way by seeking out the flavors of seasonal, local, and organic food rather than

purchasing items that are trucked to supermarkets from long distances.

Ingredients used in traditional Sicilian cuisine include the following: fava beans, fennel,

eggplant, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, artichokes, garlic, parsley, basil, bay leaves,

oregano, mint, figs, oranges, lemons, almonds, sardines, anchovies, and much more.

To get the best results from our Sicilian recipes, buy fresh, seasonal ingredients whenever

possible. Many of the recipes presented in this book can be prepared by using ingredients

from your local farmers markets.
