In Sicily, granita is both sacred and ubiquitous according to Paolo Gatto, owner of the newly opened Pari Pasticceria in Concord. “In the corner of every bar in Sicily, they have granita,” he says.
In Italy, the flavoured ice-crystal dish is an all-day thing. In the morning, Sicilians eat granita café con panna
(coffee granita with thick cream) and brioche.
