Sicilian Breakfast: Brioche & Granita
Sicilians eat ice cream for breakfast!
Okay, okay, not exactly!
The quintessential Sicilian kick-starter is slushier than gelato, served in a glass and called “granita”.
"Granita", a semi-frozen, flavored mixture similar to sorbet, is a Sicilian creation that pre-dates the Romans and can be traced back to the Arab rule of Sicily.
Originally, it was made by mixing the snow from Mt. Etna with fruit juice or sometimes rosewater. Now it is made with water and much like all traditional Italian food, varies greatly from region to region.
It can be flavored with an endless variety of fruits, flowers, nuts, chocolate, or espresso and is sometimes served con panna, with whipped cream.
"Brioche" is a yeast pastry, flatter and wider than the French version.
Let's taste together the typical Sicilian breakfast in Nuremberg at Paradiso dei dolci, a really good sicilian patisserie in the city.
