Today in Gloucester as I write there is a rush to get ready, who is doing there hair, getting their red carpet dress the buzz is this is the event of the year..I am in Newport enjoying my time with friends and family even though I would be there in a heart beat, I can’t so I am writing this to Felicia (Sister Felicia) as were all now gotten to know her as. I want friends to know that I couldn’t be more proud of her. Not because of the cook book but the dedication behind it, proud of her family( husband, children, mother and brother ) who had to endure her crazy long nights to get the recipe down perfect to make sure it was done right, which turned out easy to make and taste delightful. I would go over and really razz her oh come on Sista your grandmother didn’t do this we would laugh and joke but really she got every grandmother Sicilian grandmother’s recipe changed them around figured the little bit of this a little bit of that some of this too and made it a recipe for all and then she would make it to today’s reality of spices and ingredients etc. She made a series of cook books to make sure the Sicilian-culture is kept alive, she made it so our children can cook the old recipes of our ancestry. Pretty amazing if you ask me in between she missed parties, and gathering to finalize the book for over a year we all got a little taste and yes Sister Felicia got a lot of teasing (all in good fun) from the Godmother who she calls Padrina, and we had a lot of fun nights getting crazy ingredients from all over, but in the long run she was determined and tonight is her night well deserved she has made the Sicilians of Gloucester proud, and yes her Padrina couldn’t be more proud of her.
Lots of love Felicia the Godmother Sefatia
