Over the summer, I will be sharing some of my favorite Sicilian recipes on this blog. I had some very good and memorable foods.
I must say Sicily had the most beautiful and biggest garlic bulbs I have ever seen. If only I could have brought a few back to the states.
Eggplants, well, I think Sicilians have mastered using eggplants. We saw variety after variety of eggplants. We had eggplant lasagna, eggplant roll-ups, ricotta cheese sandwiched between eggplant slices.
Veal Involtini - essentially this is meat rolled around breadcrumbs and either fried, baked or grilled. These were very thin slices of veal. This dish makes good use of breadcrumbs and a small amount of meat.
And, finally dessert. Most desserts tended to be lighter and refreshing.
If you've got a favorite Mediterranean recipe, let us know. But check back over the summer and see what is happening as a result of my trip.
