The Sicily Chronicles part tre... (Food Friday!)

Now this is what you've all been waiting really for isn't it?

The delicious Sicilian food. Feast your eyes on these food photos.

I challenge you not to a) Feel hungry and b) want to book a trip to Sicily immediately.

Two classics: The cassata and the cannolo. I couldn't decide which one I liked best. I decided it would be best to try one of each everywhere I went. All in the name of research of course. Ahem.

Mini marzipan cakes

We were good. We split this one.

Mmmm. Can you see the sugar gleaming in the light?

The pistachio ones were amazing. Sicilians love using pistachios, in both sweet and savoury dishes. I also had a fantastic gnocchi dish with speck and pistachio.

The gelato was OUT.OF.THIS.WORLD.

Believe it or not, we didn't just eat sweet things. We got these tomatoes from a guy selling them on the side of the road. So good.

Best biscuits ever.

Yes. We had a chip pizza. And it was excellent.

Pick your own MASSIVE crustacean.

Likewise with fish.
 Have a great weekend!!


  1. I will stick to the shell fish the scales will break if I tuck into all the food in the top photos :-) Enjoy your weekend. Diane

    1. I know what you mean Diane! I definitely overindulged on sweet things!! But it was just too good to resist!! Hope you have a lovely weekend too :)
