My name is Vitina Feo and my family has been making Raw Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1935. My cousin Cati (the good looking Italian girl in the picture above), and her family, has been making pasta and all kind of pastries since 1950. HURRAY! You guessed right! We are all Italians! We all love food! We are super excited to share with you our own food, recipes, and traditions.  Busiate is a pasta shape, characteristic of our region. The reason we love it so much is because it traps the sauce in its curls. Mmmmm that means more flavor!!

We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes.  This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen.  The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe.  If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.

Pesce Stocco is an ancient Sicilian recipe that dates back to Norman times when Northern Europeans conquered Sicily and influenced their culture, landscape and cuisine.  Pesce Stocco uses stockfish which is fish typical from Scandinavia.

Vitina met Teresa in Messina who showed her how to make a lighter & healthier version of this popular dish.  She calls it a 'one pot fish dish!'  You can also use a different type of fish just be sure that it's a meaty fish or you'll find that the fish cooks quicker than the potatoes.  You know this dish is ready when the potatoes are soft.
