Fabio and Annarella, Italy
Fabio and his girlfriend Annarella are passionate farmers who decided to take care of their families' lands 15 years ago. Meeting new people and cooking Sicilian cuisine brings them great joy! They are eager to share their love of Sicilian Mediterranean culture and its culinary traditions and to learn about people from around the world. They pride themselves on using traditional and organic methods to produce everything from extra virgin olive oil, almonds, citrus, breads, and jams from the fruits that they grow on their bio farm. Fabio shares with Corrado Assenzo (Caffe Sicilia's famed chef) a similar philosophy of farming. He serves dishes sourced from local ingredients and the meal is served as a "degustazione": a series of small dishes that include antipasti, seasonal vegetables, pasta, and fruits. Slightly different from what people might consider a traditional Italian meal, Sicilian cuisine is influenced by different cultures (French, Middle Eastern, Greek and Spanish, to name a few). Fabio and Annarella are farmers and food lovers who know how to grow and use the ingredients they have. They are excited to share their culture through food and to give you an appreciation of the true cuisine of their region.
