The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Description: Sicily is the anglicised name for Sicilia, an island off the toe of Italy with both Arab and European influences. It is the largest and most populous island in the Mediterranean. It is an autonomous region of Italy. Provinces include Palermo, Messina, Siracusa, Catania, Ragusa, Agrigento, Enna, Caltanissetta and Trapani with other islands including Stromboli, Ustica and the Egadi Isles. Chillis are often used in cooking and spices such as saffron and cinnamon are used in desserts. Pasta dishes predominate, usually with vegetable sauces.
