Extortion to Sicilian Chef Natale Giunta: "It was a nightmare!"

Not only recipes in this blog but everything that can be good to know, to spread and to talk about.

Famous Sicilian Chef Natale Giunta, who currently partecipates at the well-known Italian tv cooking programme entitled: "La prova del cuoco" (the Italian version of Ready steady Cook) was on the newspaper in the past few weeks because he had received threats and repeated attemps of extortion on his restaurant last year. The Chef did not pay and reported four men of the organized crime to the Police.

"Sicily has been ruined by these people and this got to stop once and for all. I hope many other restaurant' owners will follow me in action and do the same" - said Giunta when asked to make a comment about the unpleasant facts.

With this article I want to express all my support and solidarity to this man, his job and his courage. Thanks Chef and Good Luck!!!
