Southern Italy is Sicily...The south of Italy, especially the far south, is a different country when compared to the north, and food is similarly different.
Pizzas served hot from the wood burning oven and topped with an assortment of vegetables, seafood, meats and cheeses are a lot different to focaccia, the flatbread of the north.
Olive oil, especially extra virgin, is used instead of butter. The cuisines of the South are earthier and more peasant-like, with stronger flavors and bolder combinations of foods, mirroring the extremes of the climate and environment, and perhaps the hot blood of the people! This month we are featuring the food of Sicily!
This region is influenced by the subtropical climate along all of its coast and a harsher, colder climate inland near rugged Mount Etna.
