Sicilian preview

A couple of years ago, I had the privilege of spending a glorious art- and food-filled week in Sicily. The genius behind the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School, Fabrizia herself, runs courses in all kinds of things, including the art of Maira Kalman.

I can’t begin to capture how much fun we had, walking and painting and drawing with Maira, and harvesting and cooking with Fabrizia and her team, and visiting the sights of Sicily–some of the oldest things I have ever laid eyes on, on some of the hottest days of my life.

Fabrizia and team have adapted to our pandemic ways and are offering virtual classes in Sicilian specialties. A bunch of us alumni types are Zooming in together this weekend to learn how to make some special dishes. Watch this space for photos!

    We had such a wonderful week there, except for that HOT HOT day at Agrigento (is that where we were?) wow, was that hot. But everything else was wonderful.

    Agreed! Yes Mim. It was Agrigento. Blistering heat and pelting sand! Not only was our time fabulous in so many ways, I feel that lifelong friendships were made. Bellissima e Amore!
