Dress for Success 


This weekend in the southeastern Sicilian town of Pachino, they are celebrating the “Inverdurata di Pachino,” a festival that features local agricultural production. In this case, it is their renowned sweet cherry tomatoes–here used to create a dress along with orange, lemon, cucumbers, and onion slices (there may be some celery and zucchini mixed in for accents)! 

When I saw this photo, taken by our Experience Sicily guide Sebastiano Garifo earlier today, I had to share it. The weekend’s events include a competition for “vegetable mosaics,” of which this display is a part, as well as a variety of entertainment, cultural traditions, and of course, food.
