Italian Cuisine

Can you believe that an independent Sicily would rank seven in the world of wine? Sicilians and really love their desserts. The most famous Sicilian dessert wine Marsala. It was once considered a great sweet wine, and if you're careful you can find a good one. Avoid like the plague Marsala cooking wine, even for cooking. Remember, in Sicily and elsewhere, most dessert wines are sold in half-liter bottles.

Cannoli con Ricotta (ricotta-filled rolls) are made from flour, cocoa, chocolate, white wine, candied fruit, ricotta, and some other ingredients. They are not so easy to make, but it is a dessert that you find in many Italian bakeries. Recommended wines Malvasia di Bosa DOC combinations in Sardinia Moscato di Pantelleria, and the Sicilian DOC that once made from dried grapes Moscato di Pantelleria is known as Passito DOC. This wine is always sweet. You will probably have more luck finding Moscato.

Cassata alla Siciliana (Sicilian Cassata) is a cake, not to be confused with an ice cream treat with the same name. It begins with a sponge and lots and lots of ingredients like chocolate, chestnut flour, cheese and ricotta. After baking, add the apricot jelly, candied fruit and more. Recommended wine pairings include Malvasia delle Lipari DOC Sicilian that can be done in the style Passito, Moscato di Siracusa DOC Moscato di Sicilian Trani DOC or from Apulia. You may have trouble finding these wines and replaced by a sweet Italian Moscato.

Cotognata (Quince Preserve) is a traditional Sicilian dessert, often in the form of a leaf or a fish. Do not forget to add lemon and sugar. Recommended wine Moscato di Pantelleria DOC combinations Moscato di Siracusa DOC Moscato di Trani DOC and.

Panzerotti Ai Due Formaggi (cheese Panzerotti) is honey-coated pastry crescents, whose secret is a special Italian cheese, grated Pecorino Siciliano and a small amount of chopped Cacioavallo Silano. It also calls for flour, butter, orange peel and lemon, and olive oil. Serve hot with any of the above wines or a Sicilian Moscato di Noto DOC. You can look for Planeta's name on the label.
