Baglio Santacroce's Cuisine - Sicilian Cuisine

Baglio Santa Croce's Cuisine

Sparkling, joyful, ceremonial, and imaginative. Sicilian cuisine is like its land. It thrives on the sun, sea and love and on bright colours, intense scents and sharp contrasts.

The history of Sicilian food tradition began with the first inhabitants of the island: the Sicanians, the Phoenicians, the Greeks and the Romans. It is said that the rich and the major representatives of Greek culture would send their chefs to learn the art of Sicilian cuisine. It continued to evolve and encompassed new flavours with the arrival of the invading populations, from the Vandals to the Byzantines, the Arabs to the Normans, the Angevins to the Aragonese. The tradition has continued and grown, becoming enriched with new elements from different cultural influences. New recipes have been passed down through generations, and popular food lives alongside and is compared to “modern dishes”.
The main features of Baglio Santacroce’s cuisine are, therefore, imagination, well presented dishes, the use of spices, condiments, and the profusion of flavours.
Some of the Sicilian dishes which are prepared at Restaurant Baglio Santacroce are described below.
