If there's anywhere on the stunning island of Sicily you can sense just how close Africa is, it's the western coast. Since the Middle Ages the Moorish influences have continued to exist, and whether you’re devouring a delicious bowl of cous cous (a speciality on the western coast), a traditional Sicilian dessert: cassata, or appreciating the elegant spices in the local arancini, you will certainly get a flavour of Africa through its food.
