David Rocco’s Sicilian Food Tour this Saturday

David's trips back to Italy are always all about the food, but he does more than just eat. In Sicily, he takes part in an authentic garlic harvest.

To put it simply: I want David Rocco’s life. His latest Italian adventure is a vacation through Sicily with his wife, Nina, and any food person will be mesmerized by their itinerary. No travel agent could dream up a food tour like this one. At least we can live vicariously through the Roccos: An all-new episode of David Rocco’s Dolce Vita chronicles their delicious trip through the region, this weekend. 

David makes rustic Sicilian dishes like this pasta with eggplant and pesto alla trapanese, made with a mortar and pestle.

Tomorrow at 1:30pm/12:30c, David and Nina’s Sicilian vacation kicks off with a visit to friends who own an agriturismo, an Italian farm property that doubles as a hotel. Theirs produces olive oil, so the Roccos get to enjoy a private olive oil tasting. Then they explore the countryside on horseback and take part in a traditional garlic harvest. David cooks up some fresh and simple dishes that are characteristic of this Southern region, like Pasta alla Trapanese, shown above.

David grills spiedini in one of Palermo's market piazzas.

Later this month, the Roccos will visit Palermo, Sicily’s largest city, which is famous for its sprawling outdoor markets. David fires up the grill and throws a party with the locals right in the market piazza. 

David and Nina check out the island's beautiful beaches.

Fun fact: Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean. Naturally, later on in the trip, David and Nina hit its gorgeous beaches. They spend a relaxing weekend in the resort town of San Vito Lo Capo, cooking favorite seaside dishes and beach-hopping by boat. It’s no wonder the show is called Dolce Vita

Catch David Rocco’s Sicilian Vacation tomorrow afternoon at 1:30pm/12:30c.
