Ninnetti Restaurant – A Hidden Gem in the Outskirts of Catania

Ninnetti Restaurant – A Hidden Gem in the Outskirts of Catania

Blogging is tougher than it looks!  Especially for someone that doesn’t know how to read.  Im being dramatic, but I don’t know how to enjoy reading like a typical human being.  I like to listen to music and have a slight addiction to music videos on YouTube.   And my inability to multitask does not allow […]

Lipari Island – A Sicilian Getaway

Lipari Island – A Sicilian Getaway

What do you do when you are on an island for an extended period of time? You go to a smaller nearby island. Sorry for the random thought, but I think its funny how many islands we have been to over the past couple years. We might have an obsession with them or maybe some […]

Blanc a Manger – A French restaurant in Catania Italy?

Blanc a Manger – A French restaurant in Catania Italy?

Catania!  I have to yell its name because I have a love hate relationship with this city.  If thats possible.  It has such beautiful sights, but has graffiti nearby.  It is pretty close to where we live, but yet so far away due to the possessed Fiat drivers and triple occupied scooters trying to run […]

Cilda – My favorite place to buy wine in Catania

Lech Austria – Shhhpegetti and Skiing

Lech Austria – Shhhpegetti and Skiing

Arancia Rossa Have Arrived!

Arancia Rossa Have Arrived!

We have been keeping an eye on the produce markets waiting for these oranges to arrive.  Last year we became obsessed with eating these.  Since everything is seasonal around here you have to wait in anticipation until they arrive again.  I think this build up makes the oranges taste even better.  Even with that in […]

Palmento – A Great Book about Sicilian Wine and Culture

I forgot to talk about this book about a year ago when I read it.  I just ran across it in the house again and remembered that I had to share.   If you need an new book or know someone that has an interest in Sicilian wine or just Sicily for that matter this is […]
