The secret to this menu, Antonella tells us, is imagination. She takes simple, traditional dishes and adds her own unique touch to make them truly special. The other secret is, of course, the unbeatable quality and flavour of local Sicilian ingredients. Antonella begins with a starter of “Pasta chi tinnirumi”, with courgettes, potatoes, tomatoes, onion and rice, a wonderful mixture of textures bursting with fresh and light flavours. Next, she serves “sarde a sfinciuni”, fresh sardines in a light tomato sauce, covered with pecorino cheese, oregano, parsley, olive oil, breadcrumbs, and anchovies. On the side, fresh vegetables (potatoes, carrots, courgettes, tomatoes, aubergines and onion). Finally, to round off the Taste Experience, she serves one of Sicily’s most iconic exports, the lemon, with a Sicilian classic: gelo di limone, a frozen dessert made with fresh lemons, with lemon-flavoured ‘baci di dama’ biscuits.
