Throughout the centuries, Sicilian-style cooking has been strongly influenced by conquerors, kingdoms and many different cultures (Spanish, Greek and Arab) resulting in a delicious blend of styles and flavors found nowhere else in Italy. Unique, fresh with powerful flavors, it’s a fact that Sicilian cooking is widely known as one of the premier cuisines in all of Italy.
