When I heard about Elisia Menduni's new book Sicilia La Cucina Di Casa Planeta, I wanted a copy. My food maven/teacher/tour guide Judy Witts Francini had introduced me to it. There is something about flavor, sun, sea and soil through the voice of Sicilian food that makes such cuisine so compelling. The book, simple, clean and full of delicious photography, is studded with stunning recipes. It beautiful captures the richness of this Island, each mouthful full of flavor and also history. Bravo Elisia.
