I am absolutely loving this new cooking project, but it makes me wish I had a huge extended family to feed. When I initially started this project, I thought I would spend two weeks cooking from a given culture, but there are just so many dishes to explore, I have decided to spend a month at each stop on the Culinary Stacation.
There are so many different food traditions in Sicily. I’ve experimented with a delicious Trapani style pesto made with almonds and heirloom tomatoes from the farmer’s market. Last night I made a sicilian style pizza topped with tomatoes, olives and capers. I can’t wait to try the same sauce with grilled chicken later this week.
If only my photography skills were more advanced, I never seem to take photos that are as mouthwatering as the food!
