North African ingredients, smells, spices and flavours have long become an ubiquitous feature of Sicilian cooking. The festival celebrates a typical dish of North African origins, cooked with fresh fish or vegetables. Entrance is free, but the food is not. The couscous with fish soup and chunks of swordfish is a must.
