Via dei Biscottari, Palermo, Sicily
by Fabrizia Lanza In the area of the Norman palace, near the market, there are still some little medieval botteghe (shops) below the level of the palace. Via dei Biscottari is where they used to make the pastries and cookies for the king. There is one shop I love to visit where they still make the shells for cannoli by hand. Sicilians love cannoli, of course, filled with fresh ricotta. We have an intense sweet tooth. Via dei Biscottari near Via Saladino This story appeared in the January/February 2011 issue.

Via dei Biscottari
Near the Norman Palace, below the level of the castle, there's a row of shops where bakers once made pastries for the king. Today, a handful of pastry shops still occupy these historic spaces, turning out various delectable sweets. Look for the ones selling handmade cannoli stuffed with sweet ricotta.
