loveSicily begun life in 2003 and is the creation of Katia Amore and her husband, Ronald Ashri. They got married in Sicily in a beautiful sunny April day in 2003. About that time they also decided that the South-East region of Sicily is a place they enjoy and love and the place they really want to be after having lived for several years in the UK working as university researchers.
Katia was born in the South-East of Sicily, in Modica, and grew up just 20 minutes away - in Ispica. Her family has always had a passionate love for food which has been passed from generation to generation. A lot of the recipes we prepare at the cookery school are directly taken from notebooks Katia's grandmother kept. Find out more about Katia.
Ronald was born and grew up in Limassol, Cyprus (another beautiful Mediterranean island). He is also an avid lover of food and cooking. When he is not in the kitchen trying recipes that are far above and beyond his skills he takes care of this website and runs his own web development company.
Angelo joined loveSicily in 2005 and quickly became a vital member of the team with his great knowledge of the area and wonderful sense of humour. Angelo, of Sicilian descent, was born and grew up in Switzerland moving back to Sicily when he was a teenager. He holds a degree in Foreign Languages from the University of Pisa and speaks German, English and Spanish. He now lives in Modica.
Of course, loveSicily is nothing without our many other great collaborators in Sicily.
From the chefs and ladies we use for our cookery lessons to the numerous expert guides across Sicily - we thank them all for the wonderful work they continue to do to ensure that every loveSicily holiday is a success.
