The Sicily Cookbook

Authentic Recipes from a Mediterranean Island



More than 70 authentic Sicilian recipes, all accompanied by evocative food photography from the island and profiles of local food heroes

Serve up the authentic taste of Sicily with this evocative collection of recipes steeped in the culinary traditions and unique flavours of the island.

Join Sicilian cook, writer and photographer Cettina Vicenzino on an enchanting culinary journey through the flavours and traditions of this unique Mediterranean island. While only a few miles from Italy, Sicily's heritage is proudly distinct from that of the mainland, favouring dishes packed with spices, citrus fruits, cheeses, olives, tomatoes, aubergines, and seafood.

Featuring three strands of Sicilian cooking - Cucina Povera (peasant food), Cibo di Strada (street food), and Cucina dei Monsù (sophisticated food) - alongside profiles on local chefs and food heroes, The Sicily Cookbook invites you to discover the island's culinary culture and let your summer cooking burst with Mediterranean sunshine.
