We are right in the middle of our spring culinary and cooking tours right now and I have little time to devote to the blog, but I just could not wait any longer to share with you the pictures of wild herbs which are essential ingredients in my cooking classes.
This year on the 14th of February people around the world celebrate Saint Valentine's day, Carnival and Chinese New Year.
You would imagine that as a Sicilian, I would write a post about either Carnival or Saint Valentine, but this year I want to write about Sicily and China.
Having done the dining out, the fancy home made dinner for friends, the fish grigliata, the beach pic-nic, the ice-cream brioche, there is no question that August holidays' highlight was making pizza in the traditional oven with my family.
Sicilians cannot live without their bread, or I should say their bread"S", as in each area of the island you find a local specialty. This is obviously linked to the importance of wheat in Sicily, especially durum wheat, which as a history that goes back to the Greek domination and gained the island the title of "granary of Rome" during Roman times.
