About This Episode

Darius travels to southeast Sicily, to the late Baroque city Modica, to explore the legendary home of Italy’s best chocolate. There is no better place than Antica Dolceria Bonajuto to learn about why chocolate found its home here. Darius enters the kitchen with Pierpaolo Bonajuto (his family has been making chocolate here since 1880- 6 generations) and discusses tradition and evolution. You’ll fantasize about the food (chocolate, cannoli and more) for the whole week. So dig in and put Modica on your next Sicily trip!
