Carmelo Pannocchietti

Sicilian Specialties

The aromas of his homeland are important to Carmelo Pannocchietti, and at his store, Sicilian scents hang in the air.
Sicily is a special land that Carmelo has brought to the rest of Italy in the form of pastry specialties from Modica, faithfully following the original recipes without transforming them, to preserve the ingredients’ nutritional value. Bronte pistachios, chocolate from Modica, almond paste: you can almost smell the ingredients, no? The sheep’s milk ricotta used for the cassata siciliana and cannoli are made in Giarratana with whey from free-range sheep and Girgentana goats. Everything is selected based on territory and quality – which is always high – and is prepared carefully, because Pannocchietti holds nothing but the utmost respect for each product. Everything Pannocchietti offers is based on years of tradition with moments of exchange and innovation. What ties them together is the artisan’s heart, who chooses and prepares each dish in way that bestows a fragrant and flavourful piece of Sicily to all those who taste it.

Available at the store: arancini, fried calzones, caponata, panelle, fish skewers and scacce, a kind of flat bread. Sweets include cannoli prepared on the spot with fresh ricotta, cassata siciliana, granitas and brioches.
