Undiscovered Italy: Sicily

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

Sicily is a mix of Europe, Africa and Asia all in one place, home to Greek temples, Roman amphitheaters, Norman Arab castles and medieval churches. In fact, the eastern section of Sicily—once the heart of Magna Grecia—has more Greek ruins than in Greece. Discover the fascinating traces in art, architecture and even food of the many civilizations that have conquered her in Francine Segan ’s talk on the largest island in the Mediterranean. The event includes a tasting of Sicilian specialties including:

• Galvanina: an Italian soda that uses such organic Sicilian fruits as prickly pear and blood orange

• Bonajuto: Sicilian chocolates made with cocoa beans stone ground by hand, including plain dark chocolate, sea salt dark chocolate, and a unique marjoram dark chocolate

• Pasta with Sicilian citrus pesto: made with oranges, almonds & basil

• Sicilian cheeses and cannoli
