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

I've never been there, but hopefully this group will help me learn more about it.

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


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?

I would like to learn about the aspects of Sicilian food that you don't often hear about, beyond the red sauce. Also, perhaps a chance to travel there?

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

Both my mother and grandmother learned to cook from a Sicilian immigrant, but I'm not sure how much of what they cooked was authentically Sicilian, since they were cooking in NYC and the ingredients, etc. may have changed.


Although I have an Irish name, 3 of my great-grandparents emigrated from Sicily in the early 20th century. I'm looking forward to learning about (and eating) more of Sicily.
