First, I am sorry that it has taken me so long to write you.
SubitSoon after we returned to Berlin I started school. I am in third grade now and so far I like it, but I miss my free time. I also miss Sicily. The land you come from is so beautiful.
My favorite part of our trip was meeting you and trying your food. The granita is so fresh and delicious!
My teacher is going to teach my class about where food comes from. My mom and I have the idea to make a presentation for my class about your food and how your ingredients come from the farmers you know, in your area.
Thank you so much for the delicious cookies and apricot jam. I loved them!
I have listed the ingredients of the cake which match up to the numbers on the photo.
My mom and I made sure that they are ingredients that are grown on the island.
1. Lemon (with some zest in it)
3. Creamy ricotta
6. Cake crust (like you had me taste)
Happy New Year to you! I hope that 2019 brings you much happiness and peace and some well deserved time to rest!
I have emailed you before with Oscar's words just as he has dictated them to me, but I am not sure that they fully expressed how he feels.
Oscar was so delighted to hear from you and to learn that his photo and artwork will be posted on the Cafe Sicilia website.
He said that going to Sicily last summer and meeting you was the best part of last year.
He said, "-in fact, it's one of the best things that's happened in my life!".
Thank you for receiving Oscar, my husband and myself with such warmth and generosity and for so graciously including Oscar in Cafe Sicilia family.
We hope to see you again soon.
Shannon (Oscar's mom)
