Sea Urchins!

Our last post suggested that Winter is a perfect time to visit Sicily. One of the seasonal foods, which makes its annual appearance in January, is the humble but delicious sea urchin. Finding restaurants that serve it - usually with pasta - can be tricky. We might suggest Palermo's Cin Cin, though you should check in advance to see if the tasty creature is on the menu for the day you reserve. Restaurants in Taormina, Trapani and Siracusa offering seafood menus may also serve urchin, which has become something of a rarity.
