CSCA - Sicily

COUSCOUS (CUSCUSU) Ground semolina specialty featuring fish and bay leaves (rather than the meat and spice of Arab cuisines).
FARSUMAGRU Braised beef rolls filled with mortadella (Bologna) or sliced ham, hard-cooked eggs, onions, parsley, pork fat and caciocavallo cheese.
MATTANZA DEL TONNO The annual spring capture of tuna when fishermen in Sicily use dense nets to capture the Mediterranean blue fin tuna in a quasi-spiritual procedure known as the mattanza. This takes place in May and June, when the giant fish swim past the coasts.
CAPONATA Eggplant relish made with tomatoes, peppers, onions, and celery and a variety of local ingredients; served at room temperature.
CAPPERO DI PANTELLERIA IGP Capers grown on the island of Pantelleria. Brined in sea salt for 10 days. The capers release water and create a brine solution. Once drained, they are placed again under salt for 10 days after which they are ready to be consumed.
