Itinerary B
Val di Noto

[1]Teste di turco

Teste di turco (Turkish heads) are typical desserts from Scicli.
These large cream puffs are filled with ricotta cheese or custard.
The shape is reminiscent of the turban of the Saracens from which the Scicli people freed themselves in 1091, after a difficult battle that is remembered each year during the popular feast of the Madonna of the Militia.
