Tax included.

Sicily is a massive island, with subregional textures and as much glory in the landscape, as in the coastline. Here we celebrate the land – tomatoes and aubergines and capers in the caponata, pesto Trapanese (i.e. from Trapani) – made with pecorino and fragrant almonds – and fine candied oranges, Marsala wine and Bronte pistachios in the cannoli

Burrata with caponata
Unctuous burrata with classic Sicilian caponata - aubergines, tomatoes, celery & capers cooked in agrodolce
~
Busiate with pesto Trapanese
Long curls of handmade pasta from Trapani, with the sauce they were designed for - a pesto of almonds, bitter almonds, pecorino & Datterini tomatoes 
~
Rocket and Datterini tomato salad
Datterini tomatoes from Sicily's rugged southern coast, with wild rocket, a slug of oil from the nocellara olives of Belice, & proper balsamic vinegar from La Vecchia Dispensa
~
Cannoli Siciliani
This would be the Sicilian dessert if there weren't so many. Crisp tubes of marsala scented pastry, stuffed with sweetened ricotta, chocolate, candied Sicilian oranges and Bronte pistachios.

 

FOR YOUR MEAL

The detailed recipes for the dishes are here, but in essence:

  • Take your caponata out of the fridge to let it come up to room temperature
  • Place a large pot of well salted water on to boil
  • While you wait for this to boil, plate your burrata
  • Once you’ve eaten your starter, start cooking the busiate
  • While the busiate are cooking, plate your rocket and tomato salad
  • Your cannoli will only take a minute to fill, so enjoy your main and then make them last minute for ultimate crispiness – or bring the filling separately to the table for a fun DIY experience!

ENJOY! Sicily is well known for its excellent wines, from playful, perfumed, summery whites and light, juicy reds, to wines of stunning poise and finesse. We've suggested a few to work with this feast, or have a look through our whole wine list and choose what suits your mood, pocket and occasion.
