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

Yes, I've been to Sicily on more than one occasion. I have relatives there in Palermo, Mussomeli, and Villarosa.

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

Yes, I speak Italian fluently and can understand Sicilian (thanks to my nonna materna).

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

My favorite memory is growing up close to my nonna materna, Carmela, here in NYC, and getting to meet my Mom's side of the family in Sicily for the first time in 1971.

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

I'm interested in all things Sicilian: language, history, food, etc.

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

Love Sicilian food and wine. My nonna was a fabulous cook. I miss so many things that she used to prepare, especially her pasta con le sarde! :)

Introduction

Ciao a tutti! My name is Tom, a retired NYC teacher with an M.A. degree in Italian Language and Literature. I am Sicilian-American (on my mother's side) and I enjoy all things Italian! Hope to meet many of you soon...! Ciao, e a presto!
