Book Description

Feb. 17 2012

From Giorgio Locatelli, bestselling author of Made in Italy, comes an exquisite cookbook on the cuisine of Sicily, which combines recipes with the stories and history of one of Italy’s most romantic, dramatic regions: an island of amber wheat fields, lush citrus and olive groves, and rolling vineyards, suspended in the Mediterranean Sea. Mapping a culinary landscape marked by the influences of Arab, Spanish, and Greek colonists, the recipes in Made in Sicily showcase the island’s diverse culinary heritage and embody the Sicilian ethos of primacy of quality ingredients over pretentiousness or fuss in which “what grows together goes together.”

Product Description


'It's difficult to top Giorgio Locatelli's last book, the magnificent Made in Italy. But with Made in Sicily, a tome devoted to the food of that magical island, he might just have done it. In fact, it's possibly the best book on Sicilian food in the English language...A classic from one of the great Italian chefs.' Tom Parker-Bowles, Mail on Sunday --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and very wonderful cookbook - a GREAT read!!! July 26 2012
By Luminosa - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have a HUGE cookbook library...seriously. And many many on the food and culinary culture of Italy and environs. It takes a LOT to wow me. This book totally does that. It is very very excellent. A very balanced and insightful blending of the author's narrative storytelling that I found more than wonderful, and really excellent regional recipes. This book is beyond readable. He shares stories that are personal and interesting, but also he shares some of the BEST insight into the history and food culture that I have ever found in any cookbook. I learned so much just flipping to one page in which he tells an utterly fascinating story about tomatoes and a particular variety much beloved in Sicilia. The book is well peppered with such lore and all the segments are very well-written. It is the most 'feet-on'the-ground' reading of this type I have found. The narrative about pasta is just amazing as well. The photos are amazing and plentiful so that you can see most all of the prepared dishes which is really helpful if you are seeking authentic end results.

I love the recipe collection. Despite my massive #of cookbooks, there are plenty in here that I found new and/or different. Great array of pastas (along with an excellent narrative on the history of pasta in Italy which dispells some of the mythology that Marco Polo brought it all back from China since the author references Estruscan and Roman drawings and also medieval writings which contain pastas and all predate Marco Polo's journey...who knew??) I find most of the recipes very accessible in terms of ingredients and difficulty - I usually don't care about this point at all because this is not remotely an issue where I live, but I mention it because I've read many a tirade against cookbook authors from folks who live where imported food items must be scarce. That said, there are a few ingredients mentioned that will be nearly impossible to find and in those cases he does mention alternatives.

I find the book very accessible and somehow he makes all the food seem very familiar. I don't find that necessarily true in other cookbooks on this same subject. Lots of great fresh vegetable-based recipes with straightforward cooking methods. To be clear, this IS Sicilian food so it is based on ingredients like anchovies (plenty!), eggplant, olives, artichokes, tomatoes, more anchovies, capers, dry pastas, broccolis, etc etc. If you aren't keen on these ingredients, this is not for you. There is a great concise section on Sicilian wines. A dynamite section on frozen desserts (granite, ice cream...mmmm)with some excellent background on the 'whys' of technique.

I could go on and on but I am heading off to whip up some of the artichoke caponata and then read some more of his great tales of Sicily. This book is a great thing for anyone who plans to travel there: I travel to other parts of Italy periodically and found that one of the best portals into local culture is taking the time before I go to get up into the food culture; this and his other book are superb and even if you don't plan to travel there, I think reading what he shares is a great alternative.

Final word: EXCELLENT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 In the Locatelli Library March 3 2012
By Phillip C Charron - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just cracked open "Made in Sicily" a few hours back and have to say I am already in love with this book! I was a huge fan of "Made in Italy" and all the information that the book offered alongside the great recipes. This really is a continuation of what was great in the first book; history, great food, wonderful recipes and very fun and candid photography of sicilian life. I am a professional chef and understand these recipes with ease, but I don't see anything in here that would be daunting for a home cook (as long as you are familiar with pasta making and the like). Ok, enough typing...back to drooling over the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic cookbook Oct. 8 2011
By Cassandra - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have Giorgio Locatelli's previous book, Made in Italy: Food and Stories, and it has become one of my favorites. For reference or just inspiration, the background information on ingredients and types of preparations are all excellent.
The minute I saw that Made in Sicily was available, I ordered it. It arrived yesterday and I've done nothing but dream about cooking every recipe. While a slightly smaller physical volume than Made in Italy, Made in Sicily is still a large-scale hardcover with over 400 pages. There are lovely anecdotes of his Sicilian experiences, and a contagious enthusiasm for the simplicity of Sicilian cooking, done with the freshest seasonal ingredients.
The food photography is beautiful, but every recipe in the book feels approachable for a home cook. Inspiration, simplicity and delicious traditions are all beautifully presented in this book. Mr Locatelli continues to inspire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best cookbook I own Jan. 30 2014
By Jeremy Thorp - Published on
This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon. I just finished cooking a sundried tomato recipe from this book and I was driven to write a review in the hopes of persuading more people to buy this excellent book.

The recipes are simple, and there are so many of them - I think I may have tried 10% of them, in the form of dozens and dozens of delicious meals.

Buy it.
