I arrived in Palermo this afternoon just in time for the sun to go down… a bummer when for me it was like 11:00 a.m.; however, the evening was saved by my cousin Massimo’s hospitality (Check out his apartment on Air B&B, “da Max” in Palermo, that’s where I’m staying! A beautiful apartment.) and my cousins (Massimo,) Maurizio, Silvana, and Giulia taking me out to a fantastic pizzeria for dinner. We started with the perfect plate of antipasti Palermitani: caponata, panelle, cazzilli, anchiovies paired with caciocavallo, breaded and fried (oh, yeaaah), and mini arancine… but not with ragu, with lemon zest and caciocavallo cheese! It is citrus season, afterall. Mmmm… good.
