Shelled Sicilian Pistachios (50g) - Bacco

£3.99

These authentic Sicilian pistachios by the historical company Bacco in Bronte are shelled and not peeled for the best taste. After harvesting, pistachios are left under the sun to dry and are then packaged without adding salt, thus being poorer in sodium than pistachios imported from abroad. 

They can be eaten as a snack (munching dried fruit is a Sicilian tradition that sinks into the mists of time), or as a garnish on sweets and ice cream.

Marsala "Floriovo" (75cl) - Florio

£8.90

Marsala is an iconic Sicilian sweet liqueur wine, often paired with Italian desserts, enriched with the natural substances of egg yolk.

The taste is soft, warm, mainly sweet, and delicate. It is rich in returns of dried fruit and a long persistence of toasted almonds. 

This wine is excellent for flavouring marzipan, making Tiramisu and Zabaglione. You can also use it to make sauces, but it is also a good company for fruit pies and dry pastries. You can drink the wine on its own as a dessert wine or as an after-dinner drink.
