From the first bite of Maria's lemon ricotta cake on our arrival, until our final breakfast feast, our stay at Terre di Himera was a culinary kaleidoscope of Sicily's finest food. Most notable were the delicious dinners which were spread out over at least half a dozen dishes. After each course we would imagine ourselves to be full...only to be amazed by another wonderful tasting concoction, each accompanied by Maria's explanation of the origins and cooking techniques of its fresh local ingredients.
Maria and Fabrizio's refined taste is not confined to the kitchen - re-built from its modest beginings as a crumbling police station, their country house is the perfect combination of rustic charm with modern amenities in an idyllic hilltop setting. We hope one day to return!
