Hi. It's me. I’ve been (not so) patiently waiting to share our Sicily trip with you. It’s taken Stuart, my poor video editor/husband, a few weeks to organize the audio and video files from our recent adventure but the time has finally come. And not only has the time come, but we’ve committed our efforts to bringing you two videos a week sharing our adventures. We will be peppering in normal content too but for the next few months, be prepared to travel through Sicily with us!

First stop, Palermo. The capital of Sicily.
Even though Palermo is a big city, we were met with welcoming arms. Our friends in Palermo figured the best place to start was Casa Stagnitta – a third generation coffee shop, celebrating it’s 100th anniversary, right in the heart of Palermo. We met with Jean Franco, practiced our Italian espresso sipping, and got plenty caffeinated after the 24 hours of travel we’d just endured. It’s a small piece of our trip but it’s a delicious place to start.
Please note: all of the places mentioned, along with the people we interact with, will all be tagged in the notes below the video.
Please also note: Casa Stagnitta ships worldwide. Just in case you need a little somethin’-somethin’.
I hope you enjoy! Stay tuned for more…
Many thanks to my friend, Dolores, for dreaming and orchestrating this trip for us. And to my friend, John, for educating and humoring us along the way.
…how absolutely wonderful was that…
Great post, but I find the new format a little confusing.
I know a lot of work goes into this, but the way you call your blog essays
could easily confuse new readers and me. Please don’t let this offend you.
I found this confusing too but saw it on another blog recently. Is this a new blog term?
I loved your video from a while back where you were cooking outside and roasting coffee bean. It was cold and i think you wore a beautiful cape? This is almost the opposite but equal beauty in your cotton dress and the rustic colours of a warm Sicily. and I can taste the coffee. I have your farm book but I hope you make another cookbook on your travels. I’m gluten free so I hope your new videos have lots of cooking inspo.
Love the photos and so jealous. I have so many places left in the USA I want to see and never really give much thought for oversea traveling but if I did go this would be lovely.
