It’s watermelon season, which for us means one thing: watermelon pudding, or known to the Sicilians as Gelo di mellone. Jasmine flowers which can be found growing in the terrace garden of our Palazzo, are added for a unique, exotic flavour.
Only a few times during the Summer, under the darkness of a night with a full moon (what those in the know call a Full Sturgeon Moon) a spectacular event occurs on my terrace – the blooming of the Queen of the Night.
It’s a very exciting period here at Butera 28 Apartments and in Palermo. The high season has started and tourists are flocking to Sicily.
