You have to taste the slight Caponata, without peppers and with unusual scales of cocoa: this recalls the chef's grandmother, when she was telling him about the times when she used to serve the military a chocolate bar to soften the caponata. The eggplant pie with tomatoes and salt ricotta Made in Sicily is the antic Trapani dish that is sublime. Especially the second dish, which is a gazpacho with fried anchovies with chickpea flour. Superb goodness from Trinacria! The cous cous with fish with cinnamon is well balanced and makes the mind travel to places in the Middle East; the Macco of bean is a simple but tasty purée of broad beans, with vegetables and flavored ricotta or with mussels (at choice).
