Alive, Curious, and Profoundly Rooted

Sicily: land of blue ocean, historical heritage, Etna, delicious food and, of course, good wine. And when it comes to wine, Tasca d’Almerita family certainly holds a leading role on the Sicilian scene. Martina, our Food and Wine Specialist, was lucky enough to have a chat with Giuseppe Tasca d’Almerita, who explains the secrets, the culture and the history behind the delicacy of the wine produced by his family.

Sicilian-style Eggplant Parmesan

Nonna Zuccarello (our Food and Wine Specialist’s grandmother-in-law) shared her recipe for Eggplant Parmesan, Sicilian style with us. What makes it special are the hard boiled eggs, which must be included between crushed tomatoes and the next layer of eggplant. That magic touch makes this dish absolutely divine. La ricetta della nonna (grandma’s recipe) is just impeccable, as always, after all.
