Hi, I was born in Sicily and came over to the U.S. when I was three. I still speak the Sicilian dialect. I want to maintain my Sicilian roots and traditions and hope to someday spend more of my time back in my homeland.
Yes I have been to Sicily a number of times. I was born there and still have relatives there. I love my culture and want to share it with fellow Sicilians.
I speak the Sicilian dialect. I was born in Alcamo. I have forgotten a lot of it over the years but I guess I am still at the intermediate level.
I was three years old when I left Sicily. It took me many years to return. But when I did I suddenly broke down in tears,upon seeing from the plane,the mountains along the airport at Punta Raisa. That's when I realized what it all meant to me.
I never realized the diversity of Sicilian food especially the Arab influence in the West. I never realized couscous was a main staple there. I want to explore foods that I did not grow up with.
My relatives are in the wine business in Alcamo. They contribute the white grapes that go to make Bianco Alcamo and others. I know that Sicily in the last 15 years or so has become quite a respected wine region.
vince, let ME thank you for opening your home to all things siciliano!
you are correct ---- the night was MAGICAL! ciao,
Hi, Vince-- I'm assuming you have a microwave (though I should not assume anything since some people aren't fond of them...) because I'll have to come straight from work and the arancini will need to be heated. Does that sound okay? Thanks, Rosaria
Just a quick note to say "thank you" for your fantastic contribution to our "meetup dinner" at Cacio e Vino tonight. Your singing was wonderful and I was particularly touched by your rendition of "Sicilia Bedda, Sicilia Mia." Mille grazie.... a la prossima volta,... Rosaria :-)
