Sweet, intense and colorful: this is how the Sicilian pastry to the lucky eyes that meet her for the first time. But to those who have time to get to know her she is also sensual, dramatic, irreverent. Because the preparation of a dessert in Sicily is never an exclusively gastronomic matter. It can convey a declaration of love, the social ostentation of one's economic possibilities, a form of mockery of the defeated enemy. It is a gesture that underlies a thousand intentions, encoded and described by centuries-long stories. This book collects some of those stories and the sweetest desserts of the Sicilian tradition, illustrated by emotional photographs and accompanied by personal suggestions, childhood scents and some memories, all sealed by a single granite certainty: the one that a dessert in Sicily is not never just something good to eat. It is an enchanted microcosm, an ancient story, a legend that asks to be told.
