Just for Fun

Contrada Bellusa is a rural area located in the Salemi municipality, which is known for its picturesque countryside and historic architecture. The area is characterized by rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards, and fields of wheat, and is dotted with traditional stone farmhouses and ancient ruins.

One popular street food from Salemi is "panelle," which is a fried chickpea fritter typically served on a bread roll. It is a popular snack food in Sicily and can often be found at street vendors and markets throughout the island. This would be a fantastic pairing.
