In Siracusa, Sicily last spring, I thanked Santa Lucia for guiding me through last winter–a particularly long and arduous one for me. Now, days from the winter solstice, I invite you to join me for our annual Experience Sicily luncheon celebrating the patroness of light, eyes, sight, and wheat on Sunday, Dec. 9 in New York City at Cacio e Vino Sicilian restaurant.
Together we can brighten these days!
We’ll eat traditional foods of the Feast–cuccìa (wheat berry pudding), arancine (rice balls), and so much more! There will be live music by my music duo Villa Palagonia (guitarist Joe Ravo and I), a raffle of artisanal products from Sicily, and a discussion about Santa Lucia, her legend, and the traditions of the Feast.
