Sicily

Sicily is an island at the southern peninsula of Italy, and is both its largest region in the country. The largest island in the Mediterranean sea and home to the infamous Mafia. The active but calm Mount Etna towers over the island on the east coast, spurting its red hot lava 24/7 and can be seen glowing at night. Other than producing a lot of tourism, Etna’s eruptions have provided the region with mineral rich soil that contributes to some of Italy’s best agriculture despite its arid countryside. Sicily’s cuisine is historical and untouched, they are separate from the main land in such a way that the food produced there could even be disassociated from traditional Italian cuisine. Street food is in abundance across the island such as the Arancina, a cousin of the Arancini a deep-fried risotto ball filled with rich meat Ragu. Or Sfincione, a light airy bread covered in tomato, olive oil, anchovies and onions; Sicily’s answer to pizza. Sicilians pride themselves on their lemons, and they are arguably some of the best in the world. The sweet and very sour juice and rind can be used in lemon pastas or to use for the famous Limoncello.
