WORLDS OF FLAVOR TOUR OF SICILY
American chefs working with Mediterranean flavors know that Sicily is one of the hottest regions of interest right now. With its Greek and Arab heritage, its strong agricultural traditions based on the Mediterranean triad (wheat, wine, olive oil), and its history as both a cultural crossroads and a point of departure for emigration all over the Western world, Sicily's influence on contemporary cuisines is unassailable. From simple pastas to elaborate seafood combinations, from fresh and aged cheeses and durum-wheat breads to the refined traditions of convent sweets, Sicily is one of the purest and most exciting expressions of the classic Mediterranean kitchen.
