Today is Santa Lucia, a day when traditionally Sicilians don't eat anything made from flour.
Like most saints there is always more than one legend around, but generally Saint Lucia is known for saving the population from famine in 1636. So no bread or pasta is eaten to mark the day. A real sacrifice for Sicilians!
Other dishes include chickpea fritters called Panelle and 'La Cuccia'
a sweet pudding made from boiled wheat.
