We're two Sicilian boys from Texas who love to eat and cook. We love the Sicilian cuisine our parents and grandparents cooked for our family. We love the Creole and Southern food our family members picked up while going through Louisiana and stepping off the boat right on the dock in Galveston. And we love the Western food that's just part of being in Texas.

Food, you see, isn't only about food. It's not some big secret. It's something that just happens when all of our interconnected families get together-the Carrabbas and the Mandolas, plus anybody with enough enough smarts to marry in. You may be poor, went the saying just a generation ago, but you will never be hungry.

Food is part of us because that's how we were raised; food was present at births, christenings, weddings, graduations and funerals. Food is what reminded us we were family. To this day, whenever one families meet another and starts talking about something or someplace, the first question has to be, "Whadya eat?"

Our Gulf Coast experience is about the place where all of our ancestors came to build their homestead. They called it America! And they didn't just mean Ellis Island, or Little Italy in New York, or the North End of Boston or South Philly. They meant the whole damn place, wherever it began and ended, which of course nobody much knew. And it meant an idea too, a big promise in the air during the tough times in Sicily that if you sacrificed just about everything and pretty near worked yourself to death, you could have something a little better. Which, after all, was exactly what you did in the Old Country-without any promise at all.

So they came, ship after ship full of them. Full of us. And all the while, there were other boats filled with other people, speaking many varieties of languages. In America, we would come to know them all. And talk with them all. And wrestle with them all.

And, in some cases, cook and eat with them all. We kept on being who we are, sure enough, but after a while we were something different, too. Something entirely new.

So give us a break here. Don't go picking over our Grandma's and Mamma's and Aunt's and Uncle's recipes, crying about this not being the way they did it at your place. Great! We'll go to your house, this is the way the old folks taught the young ones. This is the way we remember things tasting. And this is what it all comes down to-with generous sprinklings of life, love and oregano-for two Sicilian boys from Texas who love to eat and cook.
