Sicily is the largest of the Mediterranean islands. It is a mysterious land, spectacularly beautiful in its majestic mountains and its silvery beaches, its Greek temples and Baroque churches. It is here in Sicily that the origins of European cooking lie. The island has been dominated by Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, French and Spaniards, from whom, in different measures, the Sicilians acquired new learning and skills, often adapting and improving them. This checkered history is clearly reflected in Sicilian cooking.
