Cucina Che Vai Natura Che Trovi
This recipe came to me from a most amazing book I discovered some 20 years ago in the gift shop at the Greek temple of Segesta. I return to the gift shop every year to see if perchance they have reprinted it, but alas it is gone. The book is called: Cucina Che Vai, Natura Che Trovi, a meticulously researched gem of a book that gathers a dozen or so traditional rustic recipes, hand-written in Sicilian dialect, on what appears to be butcher paper! The Sicilian translations by professor Stefano Vilardo and original ink on paper sketches by Andrea Sciortino that accompany each recipe, along with the recipes themselves, are priceless.
