Ciao from Sicilia! After some technical difficulties with the blog, we’re in business in Modica. We’ve had mostly beautiful weather with one drenching rain storm. It’s all good… Yesterday, we tried the famous chocolate- sometimes the old ways are the best ways. Modern chocolate is heated to a point so the sugar is melted, but Modica chocolate is not heated to this degree and has a granular texture- this results in a much more intense chocolate flavor than I’ve ever experienced.
