The Heavenly Food of Sicily

Cucina Paradiso: The Heavenly Food of Sicily

Cucina Paradiso: The Heavenly Food of Sicily

Clifford A. Wright, Author Simon & Schuster $24.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-76926-0

Cucina Paradiso: The Heavenly Food of SicilyResearched by Middle East scholar and food enthusiast Wright, this fascinating volume clarifies the mystifying distinction between the cooking of Sicily and other regions of Italy. The reason for the distinction – as he convincingly presents it – was the medieval conquest of Sicily by Arabs whose “culture remained there intact for four hundred years.” According to Wright, the Arabs are responsible for, among other things, the creation of the Sicilian “one-pot” meal, a “fondness for stuffed foods.. shared by the Sicilians,” and the introduction of rice, of which “some food writers even argue that the famous Risotto alla Milanese is an Arab-Sicilian invention transplanted north.” The resulting collection of recipes reflects Sicily’s exotic heritage and includes a mint-infused, Arab-style penne, grilled beef rolls with pecorino, currants and pine nuts and watermelon pudding studded with semisweet chocolate bits, pistachios and candied orange peel. This suggestive study of “the food Sicilians call cucina arabo-sicula” decorously removes another delicious layer of Italy’s riches.

Midnight in Sicily

Terrasini, sunset

Peter Robb, Author Faber & Faber $25.95 (336p) ISBN 978-0-571-19932-7

Midnight in SicilyThis is not a travel book, but rather a sophisticated attempt to make sense of the on-going prosecution of the 78-year-old seven-time prime minister, Giulio Andreotti, and of the intimate ties between the mafia and postwar Italian politics. An Australian by birth, Robb is not just parachuting in to gawk at the corruption that traded in votes, money, government contracts and even assassinations. A longtime resident of Naples, Robb adeptly puts the elusive world of organized crime (both Neapolitan and Sicilian) in a historical context that stretches back to the 19th century. In Sicily, however, organized crime is not an isolated institution and its pervasiveness is suggested by Robb’s brilliant interweaving of writers such as Leonardo Sciascia, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, Pier Paolo Pasolini and the artist Renato Guttuso. Many artists saw a connection between the rich food of Sicily and the mob, which Robb expertly exploits, even repeating an ironic quote from Andreotti himself: “I found myself with my stomach full of marvelous but terrible food, the pasta con le sarde, the cassata and not only did I not understand a thing there but I was ill too. I wonder whether there’s a connection between food like this and the growth of the mafia.” Those who treasured Excellent Cadavers, Alexander Stille’s magnificent study of magistrates Giovanni Falcone, Paolo Borsellino and the mafia “maxitrial,” will appreciate Robb’s epic story of evil and nobility.
