Service Description

Three dishes which become excellent appetizers or buffet offerings for your next party are also great examples of the rich gifts from centuries of Arab rule to Sicilian cuisine. Classic Chickpea Fritters - using chickpea flour, these crispy GF treats are served between slices of sesame seed bread in our hometown of Sciacca. But they make a great appetizer along with a bowl of savory caponata. Eggplant Caponata – the best known of the agrodolce, or sweet/sour, appetizers or sandwich fillings, this dish has an interesting backstory. An excellent introduction to eggplant, which will have you falling in love with this versatile vegetable. Arancini – saffron-infused rice balls stuffed with beef-pea ragu ( or vegetarian if desired), rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fried to look like “little oranges”. Perfectly adaptable as hors d’oeuvres for your next gathering. Pairings: Sicilian Nero d'Avola, Sparkling Rosé
