Tour of the Italian Coastline
Last Week... Sicily
Sunday 24th October
This week we travel to one of the most anticipated destinations on Greg's tour, a place that should be on every travellers bucket list, the breathtaking island of Sicily. This rugged and picturesque island is steeped in history and home to some of the most diverse and delicious food in all of Italy. Greg's menu draws inspiration from the traditional street foods of the capital Palermo and the many influences settlers have had on Sicilian cuisine... 'Manciari!’
