introductory post

Ciao from Sicily! Angela and Scott here. We've decided to use this space mainly as a way to record our food and travel experiences while we live abroad. Our goals while living in Sicily are to learn as much about the local cuisine as we can, pick up the language and to save as much money as we can for traveling. We are on a pretty strict budget for food - we think we can survive on 50 euro a week for food. Luckily, the cost of food here is very inexpensive. Plus, we have access to amazing resources like fresh seafood, seasonal produce and typical meats and cheeses of the region. We will be following traditional Sicilian recipes gathered from books and from the people that we meet. Of course, a lot of the time we'll just be improvising with whatever we have on hand!

We'll add lots of photos and recipes and hopefully some decent stories to tell along the way. We hope you'll follow along with questions and comments.

For now - Buon Appetito!
