Italy is a magical place and Sicily down south is known for having exceptional food. Markets are common and this is where the locals buy their fresh food each day. Sicily is also known for its delicious seafood. If you have ever been to Sicily, you would remember seeing the fishmonger stalls groaning under the weight of a wide range of seafood.

Fresh is best and Italians love to cook each day with the produce and ingredients bought at the markets. Sicilians also love their cheeses, salamis, fresh vegetables and fruits. Of course, you can't forget that almost every Italian enjoys a drop or two of wine with their meals, so expect to taste some Italian vino.
An Italian meal wouldn't be complete without a gelato or a granita. Italians have created a myriad of gelato flavours and Sicilians especially have a unique way of eating gelato, they stuff it into freshly baked brioche! So you might be lucky enough to discover this taste sensation at the Sicily Fest.
