Please tell us if you have ever been to Sicily and why you are interested in joining this group.

Never been, always wished to, but I'm Sicilian, so?

Do you speak Italian and/or Sicilian? If so, what level?

no, but i can understand and say a few words, curses included. :D

Send us your favorite memory, story or thought about Sicily please.

What would you like to learn most about Sicily and its food? What are your interests?

actually, i think my family, even though we're sicilian, had very non-traditional sicilian food in many ways, or at least it was so peasant, that is why it was different.

Have you tasted the food & wine of Sicily? What do you know about it?

again, my family being sicilian, there's was some, but not much. like when restaurants add "sicilian" to a dish by adding eggplant, we never really did that, though of course we had eggplant, but more "gaguzza".


Sicilian on all sides. Originally from South Beach, Staten Island, but now in central NJ via Manhattan. I think I meant to join before, but forgot. Maybe we'll meet soon!

What Joe V. is saying about this Meetup Group

the food and wine were excellent! :) wish we could have a potluck every month so i could get at least 1 good home cooked meal! :D
