After giving the interview for the St. Joseph film project, Niño gave Felicia the lovely poster of St. Joseph for her altar. He also gave both Felicia and I each a salted and seasoned salmon. Niño travels to Alaska to work on salmon fishing boats. He suggested serving the salmon with fresh lemon, and I did, and it was delicious!! Thank you Canovva Family for your beautiful gifts and warm hospitality.

  1. Nino is a Sweetheart! He is Maria’s right hand man and loves every order Maria sends his way! I had the pleasure of helping them both make their St. Joseph Pasta this year…. with 3 machines running,and several good friends working in an assembly line fashion… Maria & Nino’s “Pasta” was finished in less then 4 hours! We had such a great day! Thank you for welcoming us into your home and sharing your story…The Smoked Salmon was delicious and I will for ever treasure the St. Joseph Photo and think of you both each year when I set up my altar<3
