Lots of fun last Monday with a team of Ragusani from Unicredit Bank in the kitchen. It was no team-building exercise as this was already a well-jelled team, a group of people who work so well together to win a prize as Sicily's best Unicredit team. The prize? A a plaque, of course, and a cooking lesson with loveSicily ;)!
So besides the managers coming from Milan and Genoa, we were a loud bunch of Sicilians in the kitchen. It was real fun!
Yesterday, we hosted a team from Tetrapak for a team-building culinary competition. It was a great pleasure to organise the event for a world's leading company which is so committed to create and produce environmental friendly packaging solutions. Those who know me personally, know how much I complain and protest against pointless packaging that cannot be recycled, so I really appreciate their efforts, work and success.
Today is "U juornu re muorti", the day when the church remembers with special celebrations those who are no longer alive, people visit the cemetery taking flowers and candles to the graves of dead relatives and friends, and, in Sicily, children find presents `brought' to them by the "muorti".
Now as I am no longer a child and could not expect any toys, I got myself something even better: sweet made by Benedictine nuns in Modica.

I really enjoyed answering the interesting questions that Maria Tuttocuore of Sicily Guide sent to me few weeks ago. When she contacted me to ask if I was interested in doing an interview I simply answered: "How could an Amore say no to a Tuttocuore?". We laughed via email and one of those strange on-line friendship immediately sparked.
When thinking about visiting Sicily, one usually thinks either about spring or summer as the ideal time to enjoy the island. However, every month of the year can offer special Sicilian experiences to visitors and Siciliani alike.
I must admit that last weekend (20th-21st of February) choosing what to do was pleasantly hard. "Shall we go to Etna or to Agrigento Mandorlo in Fiore Festival?
We went to have fun on the Etna slope while our friend Andrea went to Agrigento.
