Making Pane e Panelle with Alessio at Bella Cucina Italian Deli

Alessio’s Pane e Panelle

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!
