Yesterday began with a visit from Radio Talk show hosts, Aurelia Nelson from Nothshore 104.9 Sunday Morning “CurtainUp” and National Radio Talk show host Tonia King from “Creative Voice & Media, Tonia’s Kitchen”. Both joined me in my kitchen for a late afternoon luncheon to discuses my newly released cookbook “Gifts Of Gold In A Sicilian Kitchen With Sista Felicia, Harvest”. Tonia, Aurelia and I enjoyed Lentil Soup and Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Flatbread Pizza, (both recipes featured in “Gifts Of Gold”), while chatting about our passions for cooking, connection to food, and our love for family and traditions. After lunch, we rolled up our sleeves and whipped up a batch of Pinulata, also know to many as Struffoli. It was a great afternoon, and I am already looking forward to their next visit. Thank you ladies for spending your afternoon with me in my kitchen!
