Description: Without a shadow of doubt, Sicily is a land of pasta makers and pastry cooks, where the tradition of eating is closely linked to her feast days, rituals and games. The actual act of whiling away time at the dinner table in front of a good meal almost becomes a kind of game, revealing a vocation that is almost theatrical. The names of the recipes and spices and the dishes themselves are like the characters in a play, the protagonists of a highly-colored, captivating spectacle, which lures even the most critical and supercilious spectator into throwing aside his misgivings. 

It makes you want to savor the whole lot, one dish after the other, scrupulously tasting all the specialties of this fascinating island without passing any over. 

The meal is Pantagruelian, but lucky is he who can treat himself to all the specialties of the various cities and districts in Sicily, to the fantastic fish dishes to the refined from the appetizers desserts, the pride of Sicilians the world over, without giving up the ghost! 

This Sicilian Cookery book of recipes is a beautiful and impossible culinary dream, bashfully entrusting to it two assignments which are two of my aspirations. First of all, to convey at least a breath of the spirit of this land, its "Sicilianness" which is so alive in me, to you, as well. Secondly, to emphasize that mark of great civility that has always taught every Sicilian to enjoy the time spent at the table as a pleasure and as a convivial occasion.
