5 gastronomic delights
If you are looking for genuine food and want to experience the traditions of the Sicilian cuisine, you are in the right place! In Troina, ancient recipes handed down from one generation to the next, are still prepared with local ingredients and products of the Nebrodi area. In particular, do not miss:
la “Vastedda cu sammucu”
Piciocia is a kind of polenta made with “rumanedda” or “cicerchia”(Lathyrus Sativus – typical legume of the area) flour and cooked with sausage, wild fennel or wild artichoke cardoons.
Oven baked cannoli
Baked cannoli (whose origins date back to Basilian monks and Benedictine Sisters) are prepared by wrapping the dough on a wooden rod. After the shells are cooked, they are filled with cream or ricotta cheese.
These sweets are filled and coated with a “prickly pear cooked wine”, and sprinkled with toasted almonds.
I cudduri e i pasticciotti
These sweets made from almonds, pistachios, chopped hazelnuts, dried figs, cooked wine and sugar, are prepared during the Christmas holidays.
