Episode

Placed in the middle of Palermo’s ancient streets, it is almost difficult to walk. All around there is a swarm of colors and perfumes. The latter, chants of oriental flavor whose words are decipherable only by true experts, advertise the products on sale.  

There is everything the Meditterranean island, so rich in agricultural traditions, has to offer. Street food here’s a must, counting dozens of roasted, salted, pickled and fried specialties one can count on.

The Arab influences are thick here, starting from the traditional abbanniata the musical slogans vendors sings to promote their goods. The flavor of the arid inland mountains is best experienced tasting wild fennel in the secret spots only Andrea, fennel collector, can reach. The gusto of the sea cannot be better found but following Matteo on a night fishing trip, where he teaches us all the secrets of the ancient lanterna fishing technique.
