"In 1989, I took my last few hundred dollars, packed a bag, and headed to Sicily to meet my cousins. It was a visit that would not only change my life but also my waistline. My cousins picked me up at the train in Messina and upon my arrival at the house they placed a large plate of macaroni with homemade marinara sauce in front of me. I can still taste it. I ate it all so as not to insult my family, but didn't realize that the pasta was only a starter. They had prepared a feast for the first meal! Every bite was a flavor sensation: fresh fish dressed with lemon and olive oil; fresh greens from their garden; sausage, bread and the family's homemade wine. For dessert we munched on freshly blanched almonds and white peaches that were so ripe you needed to wear a towel to catch the juice."
