Linda Sarris. The power of the melting pot
An American girl brings the flavors and colors of Sicily to the world
There is an island in the Mediterranean Sea that is a symbol of a millenary melting pot, a mixed cultural influences collector, an island able to put Arabian, Greek, Normannic and Roman cultures into the same cooking pan and to prepare a fabulous dish: I am talking about Sicily.
Today we’d like to talk about a girl who seems to be the legitimate daughter of this island: Linda Sarris. Why talking about Sicily and now about Linda? Because this girl decided to make this fabolous italian island her core business.
Linda, raised in a big Greek-American family, with a fisherman dad and a grandfather working as a chef, since she was young fell in love for the food. That made her study in the French Culinary Institute and then working as a private chef in Sicily and Tuscany. She is a daughter of the new and constantly evolving world of food. The idea that all we have in our mind of people working as a chef or a cook, 12- hours working inside a kitchen with no times for private life for Linda doesn’t work. She proved that now, if you are a food lover, you can spend time all around the world, spreading with other people your love and your passion for the culinary and the gastronomy. In fact now she is a consultant for restaurants in Bogotà and Bucarest. Her road for the success is just begun!
But why we linked before Linda with Sicily? Because she is a volcano – like the Etna volcano – because she decided to extend her business. Infact, after she fell in love with the Palermo’s food markets, she now creates travels and guided tours all around the biggest sicilian city – Palermo – to let the people discover the wonders, the fascinating flavours and colours of these mediterranean markets: Vuciuria, Ballarò and other amazing places… at the end of the tours she organizes lunches or dinners with excellent private chefs. She create also wine trips in the famous Pantelleria island to discover the Passito wine, a sweet and strong typical wine of this little island.
That’s why she incarnates the real spirit of Sicily: an American-greek girl who study culinary in French that guides tours to discover the sicilian food. This is mixin’, this is melting pot, this is Sicily!
I am Yuri, a 29 years old guy from italy. I have the strangest cv in the world. I am graduated in Law and I worked as a journalist in a tv channel focused on food and gastronomy.
Some years ago I decided to follow my heart and…my stomach!
