In her first cookbook, popular chef Dominique Rizzo delves into her repertoire of Sicilian recipes to produce a collection that caputures the essence of what she calls 'soul-food cooking'. Using fresh, seasonal produce, Dominique creates dishes bursting with flavour, as simple as they are elegant - recipes you will want to make again and again. Here Dominique shares time-honoured recipes that have been lovingly passed down through the generations or collected on her frequent trips to her family's homeland, from fennel and orange salad and baked risotto with mushrooms, marsala and cream, to swordfish stuffed with pine nuts, raisins and pecorino, and lemon meringues with limoncello crema. My Taste of Sicily celebrates the beauty and versatility of Sicilian food, and reminds us why it has such broad appeal beyond the magical island.

Charles of Anjou's conquest of the Sicilian Regno in 1266 transformed relations between France and the kingdom of Sicily. This original study of contact and exchange in the Middle Ages explores the significance of the many cultural, religious and political exchanges between the two countries, arguing that the links were more diverse and stronger than simply the rulers' family connections. Jean Dunbabin shows how influence flowed as much from south to north as vice versa, and that France was strongly influenced by the experiences of those who returned after years of fighting in the Regno. As well as considering the experiences of notable crusading families, she sheds new light on the career of Robert II d'Artois, who virtually ruled the Regno for six years before returning to France to remodel the government of Artois. This comparative history of two societies offers an important perspective on medieval Western Europe.
