Sicilian Pistachio Cake (Torta al Pistacchio di Bronte)

Rediscovering local flavors, preserving traditions, and bringing to light long-forgotten recipes... Cooking is not just about food, but also a way to stay connected to one's roots.

While most people are familiar with Catania and Taormina on the east coast of Sicily, venturing a bit further inland to a perhaps less-known and touristy area, you'll encounter Bronte, the birthplace of the renowned pistachio.

Nestled on the slopes of Mount Etna, the soil is rich in volcanic ash and incredibly fertile, providing the perfect habitat for the growth of this nut with multiple properties: pistachios aid circulation and heart health by reducing bad cholesterol, stimulate the nervous system, contribute to good mood, and for some, even have aphrodisiac properties.

But now it's time to put on the apron and prepare together a delicious Sicilian pistachio cake from Bronte!
