  /  Traditions   /  CASSATA


The Cassata recipe is thousands of years old, see how this Sicilian delectable delicacy has evolved over the centuries

  • 3,000 B.C the native Siculi people made it blending Ricotta cheese and honey
  • 900 A.D. the Arabs arrived with sugar and candied oranges which they substituted for the honey
  • 1500 the Spaniards added the sponge cake to the outside to form a mold and added their famous chocolate in chips to the ricotta
  • 1790 the French added the sugar almond coating and decorated the cake with glace’ fruit,

          and there you have Sicily’s most popular dessert – Cassata or as an individual serve, a Cassatina.


Spend seven full days to relax, have fun, eat and enjoy everything the region has to offer.
