  • Rice arancina - famous all around the world this rice ball is filled with different ingredients (meat, smoked ham, spinach, mixed cheeses and so much more) and then deep fried according to centuries-long tradition.
  • Board with local cured meats and cheeses - according to Sicilian long-standing tradition, directly from the farms surrounding the city of Palermo.
  • Sicilian cannoli - the waffle, traditionally shaped around a hot metallic bar, filled with a sweet and creamy paste made with ricotta cheese, candied fruit, crunchy pistachios from the country surrounding the city or dark chocolate drops. A colourful as well as a sweet explosion of taste!
  • Sicilian cassata - traditional Sicilian pie to be eaten chilled. It is made with fresh ricotta cheese, dried fruit, wheat paste and other ingredients according to a hundred years old recipe.
  • Sicilian granita - it's perfect for chilling in a warm summer afternoon. It is served in a glass and it is meant for concluding in a great way a rich meal. Fresh fruit, sugar and ice are its simple ingredients but the taste is incredible by itself… Imagine it topped with coffee, chocolate or fruit!
