“You need four cooks to prepare a salad; a wise one to measure the salt, a clever one to pour the oil, a mean one to add the vinegar and a mad one to mix it all together.” Popular sayings have often had recourse to very effective images and similes. Browsing through these recipes collected and selected with loving care by Adele Crescimanno will help one either remember or discover the world which is hidden behind these sometimes simple and sometimes very elaborate dishes. A world made up of simple ingredients and seasoned with perfumes, colours and aromas which evoke delightful memories and in some cases give rise to a hint of nostalgia. This is certainly a splendid introduction to the cooking of Sicily. Most of these recipes can be used all over the world too as so many of the ingredients are now to be found elsewhere.
The author Adele Crescimanno, born in Corleone, now lives in Palermo and has always cherished a love of Sicilian traditions, particularly for food as an expression of those traditions and of love of family. Her researches, of which this book is a summary, have been directed to collecting recipes of the old days which were carefully written in exercise books and preserved by housewives who thereby contributed to the maintenance of their culinary heritage.
