With deep Sicilian roots to Cannery Row in Monterey, California, Maxine has carried down the tradition of cooking couscous.

My family grows, harvest and presses its own Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1935 in Sicily, Italy.
As farmers, we are frustrated with a food industry that demands mediocrity to meet market demands. This is why we entered the market in 2013, to bring you the REAL EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and other farm fresh foods from Sicily.
Papa Vince is a small family-owned business.
Our goal is to restore the joy of family and friends sitting around the table to enjoy an incredible meal - just like the ones Grandma used to make. Once you taste Papa Vince foods we are convinced you will become part of our family. It’s the Italian way – to make friends, with food around the table.
