Wednesday: September 18th Flavors of Sicily
Most everyone loves the robust flavors from Sicily. Sicily, being geographically centered in the Mediterranean Sea, has been used, occupied, or fortified (seemingly) by every historical nation of power that has ever existed along the Mediterranean Sea coast. Chef Irv will prepare Sicilian creations from his favorite culturally influenced regions. Sicilian cuisine shows traces of all the cultures that established themselves on the island of Sicily over the last two millennia. Although its cuisine is predominantly based on Italian cuisine, Sicilian food also has Spanish, Greek and Arab influences. The dishes from Sicily come directly from the flavors of nature, from ingredients found in sunny, hilly lands, some surrounded by bright blue seas. Get ready for the sun-drenched flavors of the Mediterranean.
