CheeseArt in Ragusa, for those who love cheese!

Do you know what "CheeseArt" is? CheeseArt is a great event located in Ragusa and organised by the Association Corfilac. It will celebrate the opening of two important places devoted to cheeses. The first is the Cacioteca Regionale Siciliana and the second is a lab called Accademia della terra, where is possible to taste products and have guided tours.

Now, I believe the world  is divided in 2 species: people who love cheeses and people who hate them. I still get a bit disappointed when I come across a person that says: "I don't like cheeses." I always wonder: "How is that possible? I love them!!!"

I know I know, it seems very appropriate quoting the famous latin sentence: "de gustibus non disputandum est!" It means that there is no point in discussing about people's taste because everyone has its own.

Let's not discuss then, let's just go to Ragusa for this amazing event and if you are too far to go, have some nice cheese and enjoy it! ;-)

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!!!

Here we go! A year has passed since I started this online experience that has given me a lot of satisfacions. Thanks for the many mails, requests and nice comments I received in these months, I really appreciated them!

It is my first blog and having reached almost 55,000 readers after 12 months is absolutely an amazing result, I am so proud as I did all by myself and without any help... so thank you very much!

Today is the festivity of the Epiphany so, just like the 3 wisemen, I would like to bring you three little presents wishing a very Happy New Year to spend with the Sicilian Cuisine blog:

1) Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are - Brillat Savarin

2) Laughter is brightest where food is best - Irish Proverb

3) We should look for someone to eat and drink with, before looking for something to eat and drink! - Epicurus

Think and enjoy! :)))
