The latin Laurus, our laurel, has always been a symbol of Sicily. Have you ever seen thte fascinanting perennial plant, the erect stem and the black green cortex? Here it is our “addàru”, loved and used in Sicily since our grandparents began to make it foundamental ingredient of many culinary recipes.
But its History keeps us back in time, in Greek-Roman antiquity, when the laurel was sacred to Apollo and a symbol of wisdom and glory. His crowns are poised for the poets and winners, and today it is indisputable symbol of glory.
