I recently visited Bella Cucina Gourmet Italian Deli in Lake Hiawatha, NJ. The proprietors are great friends of mine, Alessio & Lauren Troia. Alessio is a native Palermitano, meaning he’s from Palermo, Sicily. One of his specialties are a Sicilian street food called pane e panelle, which are deep-fried chickpea fritters served on a sesame seed roll with salt and lemon. I decided to record Alessio as he prepared the pane e panelle. Enjoy!
