I feel a deep connection to Sicily, her people, land, food and wine. It started with my grandparents, Maria and Sebastiano, who grew up near Siracusa. It grows each time I visit.
I recently spent a week at San Vito Lo Capo. I couldn’t wait to buy, cook and eat local seafood. First stop, Pescheria Alfonso, where I met Alfonso Battaglia, the owner, heart and smile behind the counter.
