A story of honour, religion and the perfect cassata
Travel writer Brian Johnston accepted an invitation to attend the confirmation of a friend's god-daughter in Sicily, naively expecting little more than the chance to immerse himself in some genuine southern Italian hospitality, while exploring the vibrant tastes, smells, flavours and rituals of Sicilian food. But Sicily has a way of getting under your skin, and as well as being seduced by the island's earthy and mysterious charms, he found himself unexpectedly swept up in flamboyant family dramas and dangerous village politics, eccentric personalities and age-old feuds.
A delicious and wholly irresistible tale of passion, power, politics and pasta; this is the story of a summer in Sicily.
