No visit to Noto is complete without a visit to the Caffè Sicilia, where I enjoyed not one, but two treats last weekend.

The first consisted of citron, basil and orange salad ice creams and I assure you that the basil-flavoured gelato was one of the smoothest I have ever tasted.  Ah, you are thinking of a sweet fruit salad of oranges?  No, the flavour of the orange ice cream was of a Sicilian orange salad dressed with olive oil and I can only say it was fantastico!

And who was I to refuse a slice of bergamot and white pepper cake afterwards?

Such tastes are a "must" if you are coming to Sicily!

Oh, you always post such good desserts! just as well I don't live in Sicily or I'd weigh another third as much. *slavers*

Hi, Jenny. Well, desserts are for high days and holidays here. Most days people eat fresh fruit. Hi, WW: Cosa?

You certainly get unusual ices there! And I thought apple crumble was daring!
