Toni Lydecker, a frequent contributer to Dream of Italy, wrote about Sicilian cooking schools for the newsletter while she was in the process of researching her new book, Seafood alla Siciliana: Recipes and Stories from a Living Tradition. Now our readers have the chance TO WIN ONE OF THREE COPIES of the book!
The location of Sicily, surrounded by three seas, explains the importance of seafood to the island’s unique crossroads cuisine, fed over the centuries by trading, invasions, and occupations. In her book, Lydecker explores this rich tradition and shares recipes gathered in the kitchens of cooks whose specialties range from couscous with fish to pistachio-crusted shrimp.
