Monaco

Monaco

When I think of Monaco I picture James Bond.  007 just sitting at the casino ordering a shaken martini, with his Aston Martin waiting outside.  Im happy to report that its pretty much true…. if you use your imagination a bit.  The casino and the cars are definitely there.  You just have to replace a […]

Firriato Etna Rosso 2009

Firriato Etna Rosso 2009

I had to write about this wine while it was still in my mind here.  We just had this last night and it was great.  This wine woke up my tastebuds with some character.  Lately wines really haven’t been surprising me… probably because we have been playing it safe with the wines we know.  I […]

Nice France

Nice France

This is sad, but this trip was actually back in early June.  I have been lacking in the writing category… big time.   Luckily its partly a happy problem of traveling, but its also that I have run into a lack of focus for the blog.  I have been thinking too much about the direction of […]

Menza – Catania

Menza – Catania

Menza is a cool little restaurant in downtown Catania that has every traditional Sicilian dish… and the best part is that its all ready to go!  You walk into a room of glass cases stuffed with all sorts of Sicilian delicacies.  The dishes range from antipasti like octopus salad (Insalata di Polpo) all the way […]

West Coast Sicily Wineries – Planeta Winery & Donnafugata Winery

West Coast Sicily Wineries – Planeta Winery & Donnafugata Winery

A trip to the West coast of Sicily has been looming over us for the past year.  It has always been on our list to explore over there, but always gets aced for something else that comes up.  The 2+ hour drive definitely has influenced our decision.  Back in August something came up that forced […]

La Pievaccia – 2010 Chianti – Wine Review

La Pievaccia – 2010 Chianti – Wine Review

Looking for a good inexpensive Chianti?  This one fits the bill.  At  €2.89 this DOCG wine had a lot of character without any craziness.   Im happy to add this to the Ferrari category of ratings.

Restaurante Degli Amici – Misterbianco

Restaurante Degli Amici – Misterbianco

Not a lot of food choices in the Sigonella area.  The couple of options get pretty old pretty quickly after a while.  Luckily my friend Mario showed me Restaurante Degli Amici in Misterbianco for a change up every once in a while.   Its a bit of a drive compared to the other options, but it […]

Ethnic Section @ Sicilian Grocery Store

Ethnic Section @ Sicilian Grocery Store

The Italians are a very proud bunch!  So much so that probably around 99% of the restaurants that you find here are Italian/Sicilian.  Im not kidding about the 99% 😐   Luckily I have honed my kitchen skills when it comes to Mexican/Greek/Chinese/Thai and the like to get our worldly mix.  Having access to the commissary […]

Wakeboarding in Sicily

Wakeboarding in Sicily

We didn’t expect this… and surprisingly most of the Sicilians we have talked to didn’t know about wakeboarding here.  A couple of my hockey teammates grabbed Jess and I and took us to a random lake in the middle of Sicily.  The lake is called Lago Nicoletti and its near the town of Enna. The […]
