Favignana, Sicily:

This is a remote island north of Trapani, site of a great Punic war naval battle in 241 BC. The food still reflects Carthaginian influences, including a magnificent shellfish with cous-cous that I savored a few years ago. I also remember delicious tuna under oil (tonno sott olio) that I can still taste, & the exotic pasta con le sarde, the crown jewel of Sicilian pasta dishes. Grilled Tuna with Lemon & Olive Oil is another specialty not to be missed, paired with mixed vegetables Giardiniera.

Let’s savor together the great local cooking of Favignana, Sicily.
