Fine food from Sicily
British born with Sicilian & Neapolitan parents, food has always been at the heart of our family life, and a source of many nostalgic, warm memories. We draw on these memories, the native ingredients, the people, the nature and spirit of Sicily as the inspiration for our Sicilian Collection of fine food.
We are proud to represent the most skilful artisans, both old and new, the cultivators of our land, our heritage – our Sicily.

Pizzuta d’Avola Almonds
The Sicilian Collection
Our native Sicilian almonds, an heirloom variety, have been cultivated by the Padova family for 4 generations in the Province of Siracusa. These rare, delicate almonds are naturally grown close to the sea with no need for irrigation, creating a low yield with a full, intensified flavour. Rich in essential oils, with a moist and tender flesh, a milky sweet flavour develops in the palette followed by a persistent intensity of flavour. Delicious eaten raw with a glass of white wine or as a nutritious snack.
Our ingredients have been cultivated by generations of families spanning 130 years who have dedicated their lives to respecting the land and the sea by growing native and rare varieties of ingredients, with an uncompromising passion to nurture world class, sustainable produce. We work directly with these artisan producers and renowned chefs to discover the prized, rare and unique ingredients for our Sicilian collection. Produced in Sicily or handmade in London our products are crafted in small batches for optimum freshness.
A symbol of our dedication to discover the authentic and rare from Sicily.
The Cirneco dell’ Etna, ‘the Sicilian Hound’ is an ancient breed, native to Sicily. Derived from the Latin “cernere” which means “to look for attentively”, The Hunter was held high in spiritual, symbolic and religious importance for ancient Sicilians, often depicted in engravings and minted coins throughout the 5th and 2nd centuries B.C. Today, the rare, small hound, entirely orange in colour, continues to hunt small game in rough volcanic terrain in Sicily.

The Three Sisters Sofia, Nina & Emilia Strazzanti; we combine our
love of food, creative flare and varied professional backgrounds in fashion, music and pastry to bring Sicilian delicacies to the UK. ...
Emilia’s passion for cuisine began at 10 years old, experimenting with our Neapolitan and Sicilian grandparents. Specialising in pastry, Emilia has found herself under the watchful eye of leading, inspirational chefs including Anton Mosimann. After working at the renowned 5 star hotel Le Maurice, Paris, training alongside the brigade of Yannick Alleno’s 3 Michelin starred restaurant and at the Dorchester Hotel, London, Emilia moved to Sicily to explore her origins, working for the Planeta family and Michelin starred chef, Accursio Craparo. Her time there reignited her passion for ingredients, products and their history inspiring her to help expose the talented people behind them to the UK.
Starting out in the fashion industry in 2002, Sofia established her first business at the age of 26; an independent bespoke luxury womenswear brand called Truffle (inspired by her love of cuisine). It was this experience as a designer that led Sofia to start her sales agency, Innocenza, in 2008 which is now a successful multi-brand fashion agency, with a portfolio of both internationally established and emerging contemporary womenswear designers. Sofia’s ancestry and love for Sicily has made launching Strazzanti with her sisters the next natural step.
Nina specialises in music management, brand partnerships and luxury event production. Her former career saw her producing high profile events, including film premiers and private parties, for prestigious brands such as Harrods and Dom Perignon. Nina then went on to join Shoreditch based, independent music company Disturbing London, managing best-selling artists Tinie Tempah and Jessie J. Her four-year stint included overseeing global music campaigns, launching a clothing line and managing brand collaborations with the likes of Mercedes, Nike and Veuve Cliquot. Nina is now channelling her experience into her passion for her Italian heritage and food.
