Good Morning Joe:
I just thought it would be fun to send to GMG that The Cape Ann Museum Board of Trustees, museum Director Oliver Barker, and several staff members this past Thursday night, was introduced to the Feast of The Seven Fishes, A Sicilian Tradition, and they loved it. We opened our Board Meeting with a wonderful spread of many different fish offerings. 😊 Peter Zappa from the causeway helped prepare the foods , Shrimp Scampi, Baked Haddock Traditional Bacalau, ( Salt Cod) Marinated Octopus Salad, Smoked Salmon Salad, and from Turners Seafood Oysters Rockefeller, Baked Stuffed Clams.
Homemade traditional Cucidati Cookies ( made with Cafe Sicilia Fig filling)
Board Vice President, JJ Bell brought a selection of Sicilian/ Tuscan wines to share, and a good time was had by all.
It would be great if others shared photos of their feast here also! Buon Natalie a Tutti!
