Sicily, at the center of the Mediterranean, but on the periphery of Europe, is quite a distinct entity from the rest of Italy. Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman, and Aragonese con- querors have transformed the landscape, and Sicily's diverse history has left it with an abundance of archaeological remains.

The island has a long history of producing a variety of noted cuisines and wines, to the extent that Sicily is sometimes nicknamed God's Kitchen because of this.

Sicilian cuisine, one of Italy's most varied, has also been influenced by its unique location and the invaders it attracted.

Based on simple ingredients, Sicilian cooking is simple to execute, yet sophisticated to the palate. An abundance of fresh fish, local ingredients including eggplant, capers, andolives, and special dishes such as cassata, an elaborate sponge cake with ricotta and candied fruit, make any Sicilian meal a feast.
