Bits and Bites from our office in Sicily

Your journey to Sicily can start anyway you want! A flight from another Italian or European airport, a car journey through the "Autostrada del Sole" connecting Milano to the south, a ferry passage from Genoa, Naples, Rome (Civitavecchia)....

But a very different way to get to the island of Sicily is to take the overnight train from Rome "Intercity Notte" where you can have the experience of a life time! (And then, perhaps, try to get some sleep too...!) 

Yes, the train actually goes in the ferry during the 30 minute crossing of the Messina strait...


On to food now....

Delicious Manicotti con le Sarde. Pinenuts, raisins & wild fennel used together w tomato +fresh sardins

What to snack on at 5pm in Sicily? Brioche con gelato of course! One of our favourite "Sicily-Must-Do"

Fresh seafood at a market. Our colourful Sicily. Impressive whole scallops (capesante)...

So many varieties of TOMATOES!!

....and the simplest, succulent, best salsa ...
