Today our program is undeniably sinful. I’m in Sambuca di Sicilia, one of the pearls of the Terre Sicane, to find out about local culinary traditions. Everyone tells me that I have to taste the Minni di Vergini. I go to the best know pastry shop in Sambuca to fulfill my curiosity. I meet the owner, Enrico Pendola, an eccentric and creative chef. He invites me to roll up my sleeves and try to prepare this bulging and lascivious treat. The name of this pastry is a guarantee: Virgin’s Breast. This racy breast-shaped pastry was created in 1725 by a nun, Virginia Casale di Rocca Menna, of the Collegio of Maria di Sambuca, for the wedding of the Marquis Pietro Beccadelli with Marianna Gravina. It is made of sweet shortbread pastry and inside it contains milk cream, zuccata (a mixture of pumpkin, cinnamon and sugar), slabs of chocolate and cinnamon. When it is brought out of the oven, a strong fragrance fills the air. I can’t resist and I taste it while it’s still hot. The crust is crisp and the filling has a very full taste. Certainly, this breast is a very rich delicacy not but every now and then one has to give into temptation.
