I love when guests from our Experience Sicily tours take Sicily home with them and extend their trips with reading more about the culture, listening to the music, watching classic films set on the island, and cooking the cuisine for months after they return. That’s what we set out to do! Tonight I had the great pleasure of cooking panelle with Norman and Guy who came with us in September.
Panelle are chickpea-flour fritters made with fresh parsley, lemon juice, salt, and olive oil. They are particular to the Palermo region and are eaten as finger food or inside a bun for a panino. Norman has become a master panelle maker!
