What a delight! So much great information on Sicily and the why of food there. Can't wait to go next year and experience some of her recommendations. Thanks so much.
Very enjoyable and thorough presentation!
I have taken over 10 seminars. Savoring Sicily is at the top of my favorites, of which there are many. Francine shares her knowledge of Italian food and its history with such depth and clarity. She moves quickly while all the time presenting beautiful photographs to compliment her talk. Her charm comes through as she shares her love of Sicilian cuisine. I was riveted for the entire 90 minutes and will look forward to trying some of the unique recipes she provides. I am already signed up for two more of her seminars.
Loved this talk! I learned a lot and recognized so many things from this repertoire of SIcilian foods. Loved the sense of humor and especially the Sicilian dialect used in the presentation slides. Francine's handouts were also terrific -- very thorough and useful. I grew up in a Sicilian-American family, so I recognized some of the recipes and treasure the home-cooking traditions. I still make cuccia every December 13!
Enjoyed every minute. Francine was very informative and i will seek her out for more talks
