History of Sicilan cuisine

The use of apricots, sugar, citrus, sweet melons, rice, saffron, raisins, nutmeg, clove, pepper, pine nuts, cinnamon (along with fried preparations) is a sign of Arab influences from the Arab domination of Sicily in the 10th and 11th centuries.[2]

Normans and Hohenstaufen influences are also found, such as in the fondness for meat dishes, such as Bruscialoni.[3] Later, the Spanish introduced numerous items from the New World, including cocoa, maize, peppers, turkey, and tomatoes and other produce.[4] In Catania, on the east coast, initially settled by Greek colonists, fish, olives, broad beans, pistachio and fresh vegetables are preferred instead. Much of the island's cuisine encourages the use of fresh vegetables such as eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes, and fish such as tuna, sea bream, sea bass, cuttlefish, and swordfish. In Trapani in the extreme western corner of the island, North African influences are clear in the use of couscous.Local cuisine

Schön!

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in der kleinen Wohnung im kleinen Städtchen Balestrade sofort wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung liegt zentral und dennoch ruhig, alle Geschäfte sind fussläufig zu erreichen. Man ist nicht unter Urlaubern, sondern lebt wie die Einheimischen dort. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was wir brauchten. Sogar zwei Sonnenschirme, die am Stand absolut hilfreich waren. Auch die Waschmaschine haben wir benutzt. Maria und ihr Freund standen sofort zu Verfügung, wenn es eine Frage oder ein Problem gab, haben uns aber ansonsten in Ruhe gelassen. Einmal ist wegen Überlastung der Strom ausgefallen. Das Internet brauchte immer mal wieder eine "Extraeinladung". Wir würden wieder hinfahren.

Casetta graziosa, piccolina ma accogliente

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo trovato l'appartamento di Maria direttamente la mattina del ferragosto e nonostante questo siamo riusciti ad organizzarci con lei per il soggiorno. La casa è carina, molto semplice ma con tutto il necessario, posizionata in una zona perfetta a mio parere, vicina alla spiaggia e a pub e bar (che sono proprio di fronte), ci siamo mossi a piedi senza problemi. Saremmo rimasti volentieri qualche altro giorno, purtroppo dovevano arrivare altri ospiti. In conclusione: consigliatissimo.

Ottima Posizione, Balestrate scelta perfetta!

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato per 8 giorni in questa casa nel centro storico di Balestrate.

Tra i lati positivi c'è senza dubbio la disponibilità e simpatia di Maria, la proprietaria. La zona è facilmente raggiungibile, comoda con e senza la macchina. Ottimo punto di partenza per spiagge vicine e lontane (Marsala.. lo stagnone.. Mondello.. Palermo). Supermercato raggiungibile a piedi, bar e pub (ottimi cornetti e mojito!) davanti casa. Però, Come già detto a Maria, il MATERASSO è da sostituire, mai trovato un materasso così scomodo. Migliorerei la pulizia in generale , farei trovare almeno acqua fresca in frigo ed un wifi incluso (non a pagamento, o almeno da specificare nell'annuncio). Niente di insormontabile comunque, con qualche accortezza in più lo consiglierei senz'altro!

La sicilia è sempre un'ottima scelta..!

Owner's Response: Grazie infinite Paola per la recensione, le vostre proposte mi saranno utilissime a rendere perfetto il soggiorno dei prossimi ospiti :) Peccato però, a sapere del MATERASSO il primo giorno, sarebbe stato prontamente acquistato nuovo, di vostro gradimento e sostituito per garantire un sonno migliore per tutta l'intera vacanza. E sempre il primo giorno ottenere una pulizia straordinaria con igenizzazione a vapore appena dopo il vostro arrivo gratuitamente, quella che facciamo per chi soffre di asma, comunque avremmo fatto ripetere il servizio di pulizia arrecando il minimo disturbo (dispiace tanto sapere solo adesso tramite recensione). Internet a ricarica sarà specificato sull'annuncio, una svista grave di cui non mi ero accorta grazie :) Le informazioni erano presenti ma non ben visibili, ora info specifiche sul wi-fi visibili anche nella gallery foto e sul titolo dell'annuncio. Purtroppo evidenziare il problema materasso l'ultimo giorno non stato è utile a rendere perfetto il vostro soggiorno, perché così non ho avuto la possibilità di migliorare l' accoglienza della casa. Oggi sono stati sostituiti. Sarete sempre i benvenuti e sono sempre a vostra disposizione, grazie ancora per averci scelto :)
