Taormina Christmas – Dinner at Medousa

Christmas time in Taormina is wonderful. It is low season of tourists and the decorations this year are amazingly beautiful. Then we went for a nice dinner at Medousa by Porta Catania, a new restaurant opened August this year. Can highly recommend. They have a fairy-tale entrance with Christmas lights and decorations on citrus trees.

Jultiden i Taormina ?r underbar. Det ?r l?gs?song av turister och dekorationerna i ?r ?r otroligt vackra.

Welcome to Sicily Wine & Dine

Two days ago we opened a Sicilian Wine and Gourmet shop. The right time came this year to create a nice shop with limited and genuine Sicilian produce. It is called Sicily Wine & Dine and it follows the same philosophy as other work I do; transparent, limited production and healthy produce.

The website will grow, we are very late due to many issues to create this in Sicily, but we decided to open and take it from here.

Sicily Wine & Dine is for you who appreciate authentic, non-industrialized products, limited production, organic and for you with the passion for quality wines and gourmet foods.

Food brings people together, wine makes people talk. ? Sicily Wine & Dine

Svenska

F?r tv? dagar sedan ?ppnade vi en siciliansk vin- och gourmetbutik online. R?tt tid kom i ?r f?r att skapa en fin butik med begr?nsad produktion och ?kta sicilianska produkter. Butiken heter Sicily Wine & Dine och f?ljer samma filosofi som annat arbete jag g?r; transparent, begr?nsad produktion och h?lsosam produktion.

Webbplatsen kommer att v?xa, vi ?r v?ldigt sena p? grund av m?nga problem att skapa detta p? Sicilien, men vi best?mde oss f?r att ?ppna och ta det h?rifr?n.

Sicily Wine & Dine ?r f?r dig som uppskattar autentiska, icke-industrialiserade produkter, begr?nsad produktion, ekologiskt och f?r dig med passion f?r kvalitetsviner och gourmetmat.

Pennisi – Genuine mountain foods

Small cute special restaurants starts to pop up in the Sicilian inlands and do not miss Pennisi in Linguaglossa, just before the wine district of Etna. Their Parmiggiana is to die for and they have a waste wine collection. Second is a classical steak and third is lamb with mashed potatoes.

Svenska

Sm? s?ta speciella restauranger b?rjar dyka upp i sicilianska inlandet och missa inte Pennisi i Linguaglossa, strax f?re vinomr?det vid Etna. Deras Parmiggiana ?r att d? f?r och de har en stor vinsamling. Det andra ?r en klassisk biff och tredje ?r lamm med potatismos.

Don’t miss Cave Ox

If you are out by Etna north side and enjoying wine yards, do not miss Cave Ox. An amazing local restaurant in Solicchiata, just where the wine districts starts by Etna. The cook by the seasons and the owner is very friendly. He also offered me to taste some new wines he was thinking to have in the wine selection. Here having their anti-pasti and then Porcini mushroom pasta.

Om du ?r ute vid Etnas norra sida och njuter av ving?rdar, missa inte Cave Ox. En fantastisk lokal restaurang i Solicchiata, precis d?r vindistrikten b?rjar vid Etna.

Wine Event – Calice sotto stelle in Castiglione –

I am visiting many wine and food events as I am open a second company in Sicily. Been busy times last months that I have not got the possibility to blog about whereabouts on this amazing island. In August we visited a very nice event called “Calice sotto le stelle” in Castiglione di Sicilia, meaning “glasses under the stars”. A wine tasting event where many small and big wineries are present. Here you can also enjoy old style made Sicilian street foods. Don’t forget to visit the castle on the top.

Svenska

Jag bes?ker m?nga vin- och matevent nu eftersom jag ?ppnar ett till f?retag p? Sicilien. Har varit ganska upptagen de senaste m?naderna och inte haft m?jlighet att blogga om var vi befunnit oss p? denna fantastiska ?. I augusti bes?kte vi ett mycket trevligt event som heter “Calice sotto le stelle” i Castiglione di Sicilia, vilket betyder “glas under stj?rnorna”. En vinprovning d?r m?nga sm? och stora ving?rdar ?r n?rvarande. H?r kan du ocks? njuta av Sicilianska gatur?tter i gammeldags stil. Missa inte slottbes?ket p? toppen.

Stellamarina – Beach, Sun & Giardini

It may sound strange but I am not a hudge fan of the beach even living in a sun and sea island. But there is a lovely beach club at the end of the Recanati beach where the sea is amazing and not much tourists around. The beach club has no color coordination, nor the beach beds in order and a simple kitchen. Just so Sicilian it can be! Stella Marina.

Svenska

Det kanske l?ter konstigt, men jag ?r inte ett stort fan av stranden trots att jag bor p? en sol och havs?. Men det finns en h?rlig strandklubb i slutet av Recanati-stranden d?r havet ?r fantastiskt och inte mycket turister. Strandklubben har ingen f?rgkoordinering, strandb?ddarna i oordning och ett enkelt k?k. Bara s? sicilianskt det kan bli! Stella Marina.

DrinkS & sNacks – Sicilian hospitality

Aperitivo is common in Sicily, you meet friends or customers for drinks any day of the week. Nice habit in Sicily is when you order drinks they always bring snacks. It can be chips and peanuts, or many times even a small tray with finger food like mini sandwich, meat balls, vegetables ecc. These are for free. If you want more food you can order drink with aperitivo or Happy Hour menu, and for some extra euros you get a larger tray with more different foods, enough for dinner. Enjoy!

Here we are at bar Daquiri at Corso Umberto in Taormina. You find it on the main street with funny colorful big flower vases on the steps.
