Eggplant with Caponata
The eggplant caponata is one of the milestones of Sicilian gastronomy. It is a set of vegetables (mostly aubergines), seasoned with tomato sauce, celery, onion, olives and capers, in sweet and sour sauce. There are more than forty different versions and it is cooked in the season when the aubergine is at its fullest potential. Many families prepare and store the caponata in glass jars, so that they always have this great apetizer at home.

Pasta Alla Norma
These pasta are a classic of Sicilian cuisine. Composed of a few and simple ingredients, they have an unmistakable taste: pasta, aubergines, tomato sauce and salt ricotta . To be short, it represents the exaltation of Mediterranean cuisine in one dish!


Sgombro panato
Sicilians love Mackerel fish most of all... It's a part of the blue fish category, and is a most common fish. Mackerel can be roasted, baked, fried, preserved in oil or grilled. Mamma Corleone offers us a soft and tender breaded mackerel, to be enjoyed warm.


Biancomangiare is a dessert that owes his name to the white color of the ingredients. The Sicilian tradition is preserved since the Arab domination. It's a very pleasant dessert which is generally enriched with dried fruit. Mamma Corleone prepares it with pistachio, which adds crispiness to this soft dessert.
