NO PASTA AND BREAD ON SAINT LUCIA DAY IN PALERMO
According to tradition, on 13 December 1646 Saint Lucia, following the numerous prayers and pleas of the population, performed her miracle: she brought a ship loaded with grain to Palermo, putting an end to the famine that was afflicting the city. That day, the citizens immediately boiled the wheat without working it as per tradition.
Since then, every December 13th, Palermitans honor the miracle performed by Saint Lucia by eating foods that contain unprocessed cereals. This is why they opt for timbales of rice, risotto, cuccia and of course the delicious meat or butter arancini.
In keeping with this culinary tradition, La Cambusa offers another rice-based dish: Paella, in the “Mediterranean” version proposed by our chef Alfonso.
