Producer: Ciccio Dorazio
Based in the medieval town of Conversano, Ciccio Dorazio began life as oil mill in the 1930s. Over the years its oils gained a reputation for quality and consistency, a tradition it has now carried over into a full range of Conversano-grown pasta, sauces, fruits and vegetables.
The largest of Italy's twenty provinces and the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily sits just off the "toe" of Italy's boot. Monuments the island's rich history abound, from the famed Valley of the Temples to the immaculate Byzantine mosaics at Cappella Palatina. The cuisine here claims a number of influences from across the Mediterranean world -- Greek, Spanish, French and Arab have all at one point inhabited the island, infusing it with their respective culinary traditions.
