Dear Friends & Eaters,
if you haven’t been to Sicily you are missing out! Aside from the island’s natural beauty and history, the food is to die for. It’s all about location of course: the seafood, butter orange, capers, pistachio and almonds (just to name a few) are key ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet, and nowhere in the world you can get that freshness and quality. So if you don’t want to go to Sicily for the sightseeing you really can’t miss the food. After all, one of my favorite restaurants La Madia, is in a little town called Licata and it truly serves the meal of a lifetime. Back to today’s topic, Sicilian food is very big on texture, and one of the main components of the recipes is the “Crunch”. Used as a stuffing, seasoning or garnish the Sicilian Crunch is easy to make, store and use.
