Yummies from Sicily


I have a friend on Twitter who's really living her dream. She left Sweden for a sunny life in Sicily, with her Italian husband, and she's started a webshop with all kinds of Sicilian goodies. I've been lucky enough to try some - the olive oil from Don Nino is spectacular, and I recently got a package with what you see above. That's not just any candy, but Torroncino. That means, small pieces of torrone - which is almond and/or pistachio-studded nougat - dipped in chocolate. Amazingly good!

I also got a jar of Crema di Limone, which is fabulous to sandwich between cookies (perfect for macarons) and delicious on ice cream as well.

The webshop is in Swedish, but she'll ship anywhere in the world. If you're outside the EU, you have to e-mail first to get a shipping quote, though. And, as a special gift for my readers, if you use the code annesfood04 you get 10% off your order, valid until Wednesday April 14.

Hi Anne!

Oh SICILY! I have been lucky enough to visit and eat my way through Italy... but next time I go back I want to do the Amalfi Coast and hop over to Sicily too! This makes me want to to MORE!

I too love to cook and have amassed over my life a ton of recipes my family loves so I too have started a new food blog YOURS is fabulous! I hope mine turns out 1/2 as nice. Thanks for the inspiration and the wonderful article this morning...

I can sit here in my kitchen and dream... remembering when I last cooked in an Italian villa... and when I might again... ahhhhh
