In Sicily when we cook something we do it with one final aim: give others the best taste ever! It is not important if it is not dietetic or light, we don’t care about that. What it really counts is the taste.
The Original Sicilian Gelato is different from ice cream because it is richer in taste, more creamy and more delicious. This is possibile thanks to the ancient sicilian recipes where ingredients dosage is meticulously more pronounced and each recipe is meant to give guilty pleasure more than feeding.
Granita is not a dessert only, it is a lifestyle. For Sicilian people it represents the one and only summer breakfast combined with cream and “Brioscia”.
When it’s hot it’s the best way to refresh from the hot weather. Don Peppinu totally respects the most important traditional recipe born in Sicily: water, fruit and sugar.
The texture has to be icy but creamy. It has to be like the snow, a very sweet snow!
Cannoli come from Sicily and were historically prepared as a treat during Carnevale season.
The dessert eventually became a year-round staple throughout Italy.
Cannoli are crisp, sweet crunchy tubes filled with ricotta cheese
In our shops you can taste the best Sicilian cannolo and choose among different kind of filling: sweet ricotta cheese, chocolate flakes and pistachio grains!
