Sicilian cuisine can be defined by its unique fusion of the worlds. With Greek, Spanish, French and Arab influences, no other Italian cooking is quite like Sicilian. If you like Italian food with a twist, Sicilian food is for you. When eating in Sicily, you can expect everything to be fresh and grown locally on the island. In fact, the only imported foods are bananas and pineapples – so you can be guaranteed garden-fresh dishes wherever you go. What goes hand in hand with local ingredients is the seasonality of some dishes; remaining true to what Mother Nature provides is the beauty of Sicilian food.
