But as much as Salvatore enjoys his life here, he missed feeling connected to his family and friends back in Sicily. Well for an Italian nothing says Home, Love and Family more than great food. And for Salvatore, no culinary experience is greater than tasting the local ingredients on which he was raised. Every Siclilian knows and appreciates the remarkable history of native artisanal foods crafted from the produce and grains grown in Sicily’s uniquely rich volcanic soil. They appreciate that the geography and history of their island has blessed then with a wealth of ingredients that are exceptional even by Italians’ high standards. For Italians in general, food is not only one of life’s greatest pleasure, it’s a necessity. Salvatore and Amico Siciliano want to share this experience with you. We want to give our customers the best ingredients to create great culinary dishes as well as many unforgettable moments around the table.
We believe that our customers will appreciate our philosophy of using small-batch farms and manufacturers who’s focus is on creating the finest quality as opposed to the greatest quantity. These artisans produce limited quantities of goods with ingredients that meet our very strict standards of purity and taste.
What sets Amico Siciliano apart from other purveyors of Sicilian goods is that our food is healthier and quite simply, tastes better too. We owe this to the rare ingredients we source from farms that use ancient, heirloom, seed lines that are often genetically unique and always unadulterated by typical modern agriculture practices such as the use of artificial fertilizers and toxic pesticides.
Amico Siciliano hopes to educate our customers as to why the quality of our food is vastly superior to the typical products which sit on American supermarket shelves. We believe that our customers will absolutely benefit from our philosophy of working with non-industrial farmers and food manufacturers.
