Our journey (or “giro”) around Italy starts on the gorgeous island of Sicily! At the crossroads of the Mediterranean, Sicily’s ancient cuisine highlights key island-grown ingredients: shellfish and citrus, tuna and swordfish, pistachios, almonds and ricotta.




Menu includes:

Melanzane Involtini on Crespelle (stuffed eggplant rolls on crisps)

Tuna and Seafood alla Capanatina with Passatelli Pasta (with caponata sauce)

Torta di Pane (almond tarte) Limoncello with Poached Pears
