There’s a chapter in 

*Regional Cuisines of Medieval Europe. 
A Book of Essays*. Edited by Melitta Weiss Adamson. 
New York: Routledge, 2002. which concentrates on Sicily.

Actually Travels with a Medieval Queen by Mary Taylor Simeti might also 
be good.
Simeti offers a delightful, reflective reconstruction of a journey 
undertaken in 1194-1195 by the Sicilian princess Constance from the dark 
forests of Germany back to her ancestral island in the company of her 
cold, conquering husband, the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI.
It came out in 2001 and used copies (really cheap) are available.
