Sicily and Its Sweets with Nick Malgieri

Monday, March 10, 2014

Sicily was one of the first places in Europe to develop the art of confectionery, a result of the Saracens' domination, beginning in the 9th century, and their introduction of refined sugar. Many of these early sweets still survive, including cannoli; candied fruits and even vegetables; and sweets based on almonds and pistachios, another Arab introduction.

Where Saracen pastry cooks left off, monastic bakeries quickly followed. Today a handful survive of over a hundred monasteries and convents that once each had a sweet specialty. During the 19th century, Swiss confectioners arrived in Sicily, bringing with them up-to-date techniques of preparation and the important addition of chocolate to the list of sweet ingredients.

The pastry shops of contemporary Sicily embrace remnants of all these traditions and still produce an astounding array of sweets. The reception will include such typical sweets as buccellato, fig-filled pastry; infasciadedde, Sicilian twisted cookies; and pasticiotti di crema, custard-filled tartlets.

Nick Malgieri, former executive pastry chef at Windows on the World, currently directs the baking program at the Institute of Culinary Education. He serves as guest teacher at many cooking schools and makes appearances at culinary events throughout North America. He is the author of numerous award-winning books, the most recent of which is Bread (Kyle Books, 2012).
