My Welsh-Australian second cousin, John, stopped off in Modica on Sunday and it was lovely to see him again after eight years.

Given constraints of time and temperature, I had prepared a little feast of antipasti followed by chicken filled with pistacchi, pepper, thyme and lemon and served with a tomato and red onion salsa and rosemary and garlic potatoes. [Only the potatoes were served hot.] Afterwards there was a semifreddo from Delizie D'Autore and of course, there had to be some Modican biscuits!

Come again soon, John.

How wonderful for you both to have the opportunity to get together again. I'm sure you had much to chat about...along with many tales from the Land of Oz. :)

Sounds delicious!

Off-topic but I must tell you we're just back from our trip to Cefalu, Palermo, Monreale, Castelbuono, Lipari, Panarea, Stromboli, Etna, Catania and so on and on and we LOVED it.

Sicily is wonderful and we'll be back. Palermo might be my new favourite place (after Venezia, of course!). The week before last's super-hot weather helped a lot too.

You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Enjoy it!
