With Katia busy with cooking classes these days, it is up to me (Hello from Angelo everybody;)!) to add a post about the episode of Voglio Vivere Così about Katia's decision to come back to Sicily and start a cooking school, loveSicily.
This programme, Voglio Vivere Così, broadcasted on the Italian TV channel Cielo, was dedicated to people who changed their life and moved to a different location that conquered their heart. For Katia, of course, it was all about returning to beautiful Modica, restore her grandparents' house and start the loveSicily cooking school.

When you are interviewed by a friend your answers just flow. The fact that you know each other leads to a great combination of questions and answers, and turns into a chat between good friends.
This is what I experienced whenToni Lydecker interviewed me few weeks ago on her blog Tavola Talk . As you can find out reading the article on her blog, we first met in 2007 in Sicily and kept in touch working on various projects together. I just hope she will manage to come back soon.

This month our family choice of leaving the UK to move to Sicily to start a new life and career, back in 2004, is featured on Psychologies magazine in Italy.
Leave our post-doctoral careers to move to Sicily and open a cooking school?
Many thought we were crazy, many still think so! Others found us brave! Others understood this was simply a choice, neither bad nor good, just a choice with an unpredictable outcome, like all other important decisions you take in a lifetime!
A few years ago I wrote a post talking about my childwood in August explaining how it was not only a time for holidays, the beach, "ferragosto" (15th of August) celebration but also for family gathering in Ispica to harvest almonds and carobs.
My grandmother, Nonna Marietta, daughter of "U Massa Titta" (Titta, or Giambattista Cultrera who was a farmer) had inherited an almond grove dotted with carob trees and we all had to go to help out during the harvest time.

It is such a pleasure to receive greetings and news from loveSicilians, people who have been on our culinary tours and spent a full week of cooking, eating, drinking and discovering Sicily with us while sharing some thoughts, ideas and life stories.
