Help!!! Need a Recipe for Sicilian Cauliflower

Help!!! Need a Recipe for Sicilian Cauliflower

Went to our local farmers market yesterday and couldn’t resist picking up one of these massive Sicilian cauliflowers.  They are in season right now and I have been too intimidated by them over the past few years because they are quite the commitment with their size.  What on earth can I do with this thing??

Parmigiana Siciliana – Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

Parmigiana Siciliana – Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

If I had to choose a vegetable to represent Sicily it would be the Eggplant. They love this strange vegetable here. They have multiple varieties and for this recipe I prefer the “viola” which is a short and stout light purple eggplant.  You can see a picture of it below.  Im not sure if they […]

Sicilian Recipe – Pasta alle Cozze – Pasta with Mussels

Sicilian Recipe – Pasta alle Cozze – Pasta with Mussels

The seafood in Sicily is something a seafood lover dreams of. Fish markets are everywhere with huge varieties of fresh fish and shellfish. Almost every restaurant has a big display case filled with fresh selections for the day. I think Sicilians are born with a taste for seafood. Literally in the grocery stores you will […]

Heaven? – A Trip to Santorini

Heaven? – A Trip to Santorini

Detroit is a funny place.  It has a terrible reputation for its economic situation.  On top of that it is always at the top of the wrong lists, such as crime and murder rates across America.  Growing up in the Detroit area you turn a blind eye to these problems and enjoy amazing Greek food.  […]

Eat Pizzeria Catania – An Eating Let Down

Eat Pizzeria Catania – An Eating Let Down

I like to keep it pretty positive on Sicily Ciao here, but at the same time I think its important to point out disapointments as well.   We had a group of about 8 of us that were starving after a night at Teatro Massimo Bellini.  Luckily we were still early in “Italian time” for dinner […]

Surfing in Sicily

Surfing in Sicily

Before moving to Sicily we lived in San Diego for 10+ years.  When I moved to San Diego from Michigan I immediately got in the water.  Surfing was my daily obsession after work and whenever I had any free time.  Eventually I learned how to avoid drowning and then moved onto actually surfing and I […]

Mm Restaurant Catania – Freshest Fish in the World

Mm Restaurant Catania – Freshest Fish in the World
